Sheary scored a goal on three shots in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Bruins in Game 5.
Sheary buried a rebound just 11 seconds into the third period to get the Capitals on the board, but they couldn't tie the game.

The 28-year-old totaled 14 tallies and eight helpers in 53 regular-season games this year.

This is a well-deserved extension for Sheary, who has produced 11 goals and eight assists across 40 games with the Capitals. Per Tom Gulitti of NHL.com, coach Peter Laviolette said that Sheary can play up and down the lineup, making him even more valuable ahead of the playoffs. However, he'll likely stick to the bottom six down the stretch.

It's his second multi-point performance in the last seven games, although Sheary was held off the scoresheet entirely in the other five.

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.

Though the lineup has yet to be confirmed, the Captials are expected to roll with 11 forwards and seven defensmen for Sunday's game.
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.
Sheary (lower body) did not practice Tuesday, Samantha Pell of Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

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.
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.
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.

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.
