The opening day of free agency has seen a number of teams bidding farewell to key contributors, role players, and everything in between. Among them was veteran forward Conor Sheary, who signed a three-year deal with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The deal will pay Sheary, 31, an average of $2 million across the three seasons.

Sheary played a total of three seasons with the Capitals, emerging as a “swiss army knife” type of player, serving in a number of roles up and down the lineup. In a season in which Washington missed the postseason for the first time in nine seasons, Sheary finished fourth on the club in Goals (15) and fifth in Points (37).

Sheary, who spent three seasons as a Capital, finished his time in the District with 48 Goals, 64 Assists, and 102 Points in 206 Games Played.

    Any idea why I’m not getting notified of new articles? (and yes, I checked my junk folder)

    Sheary was fun when he was on his game, always brought some energy. But when he went on a goal drought, it was pretty bad. not sure how many points he had when he was going thru that drought but I don’t really seem to recall him getting any assists when he wasn’t scoring. But that could’ve been for his entire line though. Man, last season was a mess…it’s just one big blur

    Good luck in Tampa Bay, Connor!

    Jon, WordPress says I’m still following NovaCaps with ’email me new posts instantly’ and ’email me new comments’ both clicked on, but I’m getting neither.

    Sheary said several times it was the term that was important to him because of family. I get that. Good luck in the Sunshine State.
