Despite being just 25 years old, Sheary will bring invaluable experience to the Sabres having lifted the Stanley Cup at the end of two of his three professional campaigns. The high-energy winger was set to play on a line with Jack Eichel -- a role that would have fit him well since he previously played on the left side of Sidney Crosby -- however, the acquisition of Jeff Skinner has muddied the waters it terms of where Sheary might play. The move by Pittsburgh to trade the 26-year-old had more to do with his $3 million cap hit and less about his performance on the ice -- although Penguins coach Mike Sullivan did occasionally scratch him when his game would start to slip. At any rate, the Sabres can say they found a real bargain if Sheary can get back to being the 53-point producer he was during the 2016-17 campaign.

  2. Conor Sheary 2017–18 Preseason Outlook
    Since turning pro on the heels of a four-year collegiate career with UMass-Amherst, Sheary has earned a spot on the Penguins’ top line with Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel (a trio cleverly named “Sid and the Kids”), won back-to-back Stanley Cups, and secured a three-year, $9 million contract extension. Last year, the energetic winger racked up an impressive 23 goals and 30 helpers despite appearing in a mere 61 outings. When it comes to the man advantage, though, the diminutive forward’s action will mostly come with the second unit. The biggest knock on the 25-year-old is his erratic play -- a postseason benching serves as Exhibit A, and bouts of inconsistency could result in him getting bumped down to the third line periodically. Still, as long as he mostly sticks with Crosby, there’s reason to believe Sheary can clear 50 points again.
  3. Conor Sheary 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    Sheary was emblematic of the style of play and pace demanded from new coach Mike Sullivan after the Penguins fired Mike Johnston in December. In fact, he pretty much followed Sullivan from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, debuting Dec. 18. The UMass-Amhert product didn’t produce much offense in a fourth-line role – 10 points in 44 games – but he scored two goals in the Stanley Cup Finals, including the overtime winner in Game 2. Sheary plays bigger and protects the puck better than his 5-foot-8 frame would imply. That diminutive stature lends itself to injury and he seems to get worn down relatively easily, but he has the potential to improve upon his offensive production – especially if he continues to see even-strength time with Sidney Crosby. In 88 AHL tilts, Sheary has potted 27 goals and 81 points, so there’s fantasy intrigue here.
