Capitals' Conor Sheary: Rises to top line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheary skated alongside Alex Ovechkin and Evgeny Kuznetsov during Thursday's morning skate, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

Head coach Peter Laviolette heaped praise on Sheary, saying that "he's been one of our most effective forwards...he's a guy for me that has done a really good job... his position has been well-earned". The speedy winger has been quite productive offensively with five goals in 15 games despite managing just 11:14 of ice time. The 28-year-old will enjoy a significant boost to his short-term fantasy value as long as he skates with such talented linemates, so consider using him in both standard and daily formats.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheary scored a goal on two shots in Tuesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Penguins.

Sheary gave the Capitals a 2-1 lead in the second period with a one-timer from the right dot, his third goal in the last five games, two of which have come against his former club. The 28-year-old has five goals and an assist through 15 games in his first season with Washington.

Capitals' Conor Sheary: Scores against former club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheary scored a goal on two shots and added two PIM in Tuesday's 3-1 win over Pittsburgh.

Sheary, a former Penguin, opened the scoring just under five minutes into the second period, taking a centering feed from Richard Panik and beating Tristan Jarry from the bottom of the faceoff circle. The 28-year-old has three goals and one assist through 11 games in a complementary role for the Capitals.

Capitals' Conor Sheary: Returns to lineup Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Contrary to a previous report, Sheary (lower body) will play in Sunday's game against the Flyers, Mike Vogel of the Capitals' official site reports.

Sheary wasn't expected to play in Sunday's game, but he took warmups with the fourth line and is on track to crack the lineup after missing just one contest. The 28-year-old has recorded three points and five shots on net through eight games.

Capitals' Conor Sheary: Missing more action
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheary (lower body) isn't expected to suit up in Sunday's matchup with the Flyers, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

The 28-year-old will miss his second straight game with the lower-body issue, as the Capitals continue to deal with injury and illness to the forward group. Sheary has been decent this season when available, notching two goals and three points across eight games. Though the lineup has yet to be confirmed, the Captials are expected to roll with 11 forwards and seven defensmen for Sunday's game.

Capitals' Conor Sheary: Set to miss Thursday's contest
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheary (lower body) is expected to be unavailable against the Rangers on Thursday,

Sheary is just the latest forward for the Capitals to find himself on the shelf, as the team remains without Lars Eller (upper body) and Evgeny Kuznetsov (COIVD-19 protocols). In eight appearances this season, the 28-year-old Sheary has garnered two goals on five shots, one assist and four PIM while averaging 10:49 of ice time. Once the team has a full complement of players, Sheary is far from a lock for minutes, as he has twice served as a healthy scratch this year.

Capitals' Conor Sheary: Absent from practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheary (lower body) did not practice Tuesday, Samantha Pell of Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

Sheary was spotted heading for the locker room prior to the conclusion of Monday's 5-3 loss to the Bruins. The 28-year-old's availability for Thursday's match against the Rangers is uncertain.

Capitals' Conor Sheary: First two goals with new team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheary scored two goals Thursday in a 6-3 win over the Islanders.

Sheary made the most of his 9:07 of ice time. These were his first two goals as a Cap. He put his team up 3-1 with a low shot at the 9:07 mark of the second and followed that 1:13 later with a deflection off a point shot. Sheary is now 28, so what you see is what you get. But his hands are as good as ever and if he gets the chance, he could surprise in the fantasy arena.

Capitals' Conor Sheary: Bags apple in debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheary registered an assist while logging 10:40 of ice time during Thursday's 6-4 win over the Sabres.

Sheary is acclimating well to his new surroundings flanking Richard Panik and Lars Eller on Washington's third line. The 28-year-old winger will, however, need to fend off Daniel Sprong for regular playing time which significantly limits his fantasy appeal.

Capitals' Conor Sheary: Practices on third line
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheary skated alongside Lars Eller and Richard Panik on the third line during Monday's practice, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

Sheary signed a one-year deal with the Capitals in December and will likely get a look in Washington's bottom six to start the season. The 28-year-old garnered 10 goals and 23 points in 63 games between the Sabres and Penguins during 2019-20, so he's not particularly relevant for fantasy purposes at this point.

Capitals' Conor Sheary: Inks one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheary agreed to terms on a one-year, $735,000 contract with Washington on Tuesday.

Last season saw Sheary rejoin the Penguins following a deadline swap between Pittsburgh and Buffalo return Sheary to the Steel City. In eight regular-season contests with the Pens, Sheary garnered one goal and three helpers, giving him a combined 23 points in 63 games last year. It was the lowest point total of the winger's five year NHL career, which likely factored into him signing a minimum deal with the Caps, essentially a 'prove-it' contract. Sheary will be hard-pressed to break into the top-six and may even have to settle for being a healthy scratch from time to time.

Penguins' Conor Sheary: Supplies pair of assists
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheary collected a pair of assists with a plus-2 rating and three shots on goal in Monday's 3-1 win over the Canadiens in Game 2.

Sheary had a hand in Sidney Crosby's opening tally in the first period, as well as the primary assist on Jason Zucker's valuable insurance goal in the third. The 28-year-old Sheary struggled in parts of two years with the Sabres, as he had 53 points in 133 combined games. After returning to the Penguins at the trade deadline, he posted four points in eighth games. Sheary is playing alongside Crosby in the playoffs -- that's likely to give his fantasy value a boost.

Penguins' Conor Sheary: Scores goal Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheary scored a goal on three shots versus the Flyers on Tuesday.

Sheary buried a feed from Jake Guentzel to open the scoring in Tuesday's exhibition matchup. The Penguins' top line appears to have reconnected quickly and will look to continue rolling in Saturday's matchup with Montreal.

Penguins' Conor Sheary: Scores goal, assist in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheary scored a goal on two shots and earned an assist versus Ottawa on Tuesday.

After being held off the scoresheet in his first three games back with the Penguins, Sheary picked up a pair of points in Tuesday's 7-3 rout. The winger figures to continue playing alongside Sidney Crosby on Pittsburgh's first line, which sets him up to be a top-end fantasy option down the stretch.

Penguins' Conor Sheary: Returning to Steel City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheary, along with Evan Rodrigues, was acquired by the Penguins from the Sabres in a swap for Domniki Kahun (lower body) on Monday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

Sheary will make his return to the Penguins following less than two full seasons in Buffalo. The winger put up the best numbers of his career with Pittsburgh (53 points in 2016-17) and will look to get back over the 30-point mark this year. (He currently sits at 19 points through 55 games.) The winger could find himself on a re-made third line featuring Jared McCann and Patrick Marleau.

Sabres' Conor Sheary: Delivers goal in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheary netted a goal on five shots in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

Sheary gave the Sabres a 2-0 lead with his tally at 9:42 of the second period. He's picked up three points in his last six games after a six-game point drought. The 27-year-old has had a down year with 19 points and 86 shots through 52 contests, which puts him in serious danger of missing the 30-point mark for the first time since his rookie year.

Sabres' Conor Sheary: Lacking offense
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheary is in the midst of a five-game points drought.

Sheary simply isn't having a good season by his standards. He has just 16 points in 45 appearances after posting 34 points in 78 games during 2018-19. The Sabres and fantasy owners alike are expecting Sheary to provide a little more secondary scoring. Instead his role is diminishing, as he played just 7:56 during Saturday's win against Columbus.

Sabres' Conor Sheary: Shines in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheary finished Tuesday's 6-4 loss to the Lightning with a goal and two assists.

Pointless over his previous three contests, Sheary launched an assault on the scoresheet Tuesday, but it came in a losing effort. As fruitful as Sheary's performance against Tampa Bay was, don't get used it, as he's only managed 13 points in 34 games this season. Chalk this up as an outlier performance, though we'll at least mention more opportunity may be coming his way in the wake of Jeff Skinner's long-term injury.

Sabres' Conor Sheary: Ice time dwindling
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheary played just 9:14 in Saturday's overtime loss to the Islanders.

Sheary is seeing his role diminish. He played just 9:21 in Buffalo's win over Edmonton last week, followed by him being sent to the press box for a pair of games. Upon returning, he saw a season-low 9:14 of ice time against the Islanders. He's not playing in the top-six forward group, making his fantasy stock take a hit. It's best to avoid him until he can find his way back to Buffalo's second line.

Sabres' Conor Sheary: Busts out of scoring skid
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sheary scored two goals and was plus-3 in Monday's 7-1 win over the Devils.

Sheary had gone 19 games without a goal prior to Monday. He had tallied twice on Opening Night and had three goals after four games until running into his lengthy scoring funk. The 27-year-old accumulated 55 goals over the previous three seasons and should be able to settle back in as a depth scorer for Buffalo with his slump behind him.
