Sheary scored two goals -- the first on the power play, and the second the overtime winner -- and added an assist in Friday's 4-3 victory over the Penguins.
After spending his first three NHL seasons in Pittsburgh, Sheary headed to Buffalo and hasn't been as productive as he was in his breakout 2016-17 campaign, but the 26-year-old does have 11 goals and 29 points through 60 games -- one fewer point than he managed last year in 19 fewer contests. Given that he only had two points (both helpers) in his prior nine games, however, a repeat of this performance any time soon seems unlikely.
Sheary had an even-strength assist and three shots on goal in Tuesday's road loss to the Flyers.
The assist was Sheary's second in three games, and he's bumped his point total up to 26 in 59 games. The 26-year-old has seen more ice time in the month of February, accumulating 14:40 of average time on ice and 1:41 of average power-play time in 13 games.
Sheary's unassisted goal in the second period ignited the Sabres' offense in a 3-1 win over the Red Wings on Saturday.
The Sabres had two power-play goals later in the period to fill out their scoring. Sheary has a goal and two assists in four games since February started, and he now has 24 points (nine goals, 15 assists) in 50 games this season. He skated only 10:59, which is 3:39 lower than his season average entering the contest. His value will remain limited until that number improves.
Sheary scored the game-winning goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Blue Jackets.
While the goal was his first since before Christmas, Sheary has stayed fairly productive, scoring seven points in the last nine games. Without more consistent ice time, or a regular spot on the power play, the 26-year-old isn't likely to sustain this pace, however.
Sheary notched an assist in Saturday's loss to Tampa Bay.
Sheary has three helpers in his past five outings, despite being demoted to the fourth line. He remains on the second power-play unit, but hasn't produced a power-play point since Oct. 13. Despite the recent production, it's likely unsustainable until Sheary gets back in the top six.
Sheary snapped his 16-game goal drought in Saturday's win over Anaheim.
Sheary missed four games during that span, meaning the Sabres went 20 games without a goal from their second-line winger. The goal was deposited into the empty cage, but Sheary will be happy to get the monkey off his back, and will look to make scoring a more regular occurrence after having some decent chances leading up to Saturday's game.
Sheary (upper body) will return to the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs.
The Sabres will be happy to have Sheary back in the lineup following his four-game absence, as he's been a solid source of secondary scoring this season, notching six goals and 12 points in 24 contests. The 26-year-old winger will likely return to a top-six role Tuesday, and should see time on the man advantage as well.
Sheary (upper body) was one of the last players off the ice following Monday's game-day skate and is expected to be sidelined versus Nashville, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.
It should also be noted that Sheary remains on injured reserve, per the NHL media site. Until the winger is officially activated, he will be stuck in the press box while Remi Ellie is slated to replace Sheary in the lineup versus the Preds.
Sheary (upper body) will join the lineup for Monday's contest in Nashville, John Vogl of The Athletic reports.
Sheary missed just three games during his IR stint, last playing on Nov. 24. The 26-year-old has found some success in his first year with the Sabres, scoring six goals and 12 points in 24 games on the season.
Sheary (upper body) was designated for injured reserve Friday, Paul Hamilton of WGR Sports Radio 550 reports.
Sheary will almost certainly be retroactively placed on IR to Nov. 24, when he was injured, which would make him eligible to come off as early as Monday's matchup with Nashville. Prior to getting hurt, the Massachusetts native was bogged down in an eight-game goal drought, despite still averaging 1:18 of ice time with the man advantage.
Sheary (upper body) will miss Thursday's matchup with Tampa Bay, yet hasn't been ruled out versus Florida on Friday.
Prior to getting hurt, Sheary was stuck in an eight-game goal drought. Even with the winger slumping, the coaching staff continues to utilize him on the power play, as he is logging 1:18 of ice time per game with the man advantage during his goalless streak.
Sheary is dealing with an upper-body injury and won't be available for Tuesday night's home game versus the Sharks, Bill Hoppe of the Times Herald reports.
Hoppe relayed from Sabres coach Phil Housley that Sheary's injury is related to the one that hampered the winger in training camp. The American skater is chugging along at a half-point-per-game pace, with six goals and just as many helpers through 24 contests. Remi Elie figures to hold down the fort in Sheary's absence, but it probably won't be a direct replacement in the top six.
Sheary reportedly "tweaked something" at practice, but head coach Phil Housley doesn't expect the 26-year-old to miss any time, Bill Hoppe of the Olean Times Herald reports.
The Sabres' bench boss didn't sound too concerned about Sheary's status during his post-practice media availability. Until we hear otherwise, we expect the 26-year-old to be good to go Tuesday against San Jose. On the season, the Sabres' winger has six goals and six assists in 24 games.
Sheary picked up an assist in Monday's victory over the Penguins.
Sheary got on the scoresheet in his first game against his former Penguins squad. He now has 11 points to his name in 21 games. He might not repeat the 53 points he posted playing alongside Sidney Crosby in 2016-17, but he's proving to be a reliable source of secondary scoring for the Sabres.
Sheary scored his team's lone goal Sunday in a 3-1 loss to the Rangers.
Sheary scored early in the third period to give the Sabres life, but it ultimately would not be enough. Despite the result, the 26-year-old now has scored in consecutive games. He's worth keeping tabs on if this hot streak continues.
Sheary added a goal and an assist to Buffalo's 9-2 home rout over Ottawa on Saturday.
Despite the Sabres scribbling the scoresheet with their highest single-game goal total since the 2017-18 campaign, there was only one power-play goal in the one-sided affair. Sheary didn't factor into that Jeff Skinner man-advantage tally, though he did pot a goal at even strength to complement a 5-on-5 apple late in the third period. Sheary's been shifted all around the lineup to try to spark his offensive game. He started the season on the top line with Jack Eichel, but was recently demoted to the third line, with his latest assignment being a second-line flanker opposite Sam Reinhart and with prized rookie Casey Mittelstadt at center.
Sheary will be playing on the third line in Thursday's game against the Senators.
Sheary has been a fixture in the top six, including ample time on Jack Eichel's wing, but will be skating on the third line alongside Vladimir Sobotka and Kyle Okposo. Sheary has just a lone assist in his past eight games and only one goal in his past 10. He'll need to show more offensive consistency before getting back onto Eichel's line.
Sheary scored two goals, including the game-winner, in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Rangers. Both goals came on the power play.
Grab him off the wire now. Sheary was moved up to Jack Eichel's line for Saturday and there was immediate chemistry. He couldn't click with Sidney Crosby, but Eichel might just be a match made in fantasy heaven.
Sheary is expected to join the top line with Jack Eichel and Sam Reinhart against the Rangers on Saturday, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.
The Sabres disappointed the home crowd in Thursday's season opener, slumping to a 4-0 loss from the Bruins, so naturally, coach Phil Housley looked into what went wrong on the top line. Jeff Skinner -- whom the Hurricanes traded to the Sabres in exchange for Cliff Pu and three draft picks -- didn't show instant chemistry with puck prodigy Eichel in that first game, so they'll see if Sheary can spark that first line. Sheary posted 30 points (18 goals and 12 assists) over 79 games with the Penguins last season; he's an energetic winger who has experience playing with one of the best players of all-time in Sidney Crosby. This experiment could work well for the Swords and Sheary owners alike.
Sheary (upper body) returned to practice Sunday, Bill Hoppe of Buffalo Hockey Beat reports.
Sheary is back at practice after missing most of training camp with an upper-body injury. There's been no word on if he's ready to play in the season opener, but he was skating on a line with Casey Mittelstadt and Tage Thompson, which is an encouraging sign.
