Top Conor Sheary News

  • Lightning's Conor Sheary: Expected to play Tuesday

    Sheary (hand) is expected to be in the lineup Tuesday versus the Jets.

    The Lightning have a lack of healthy defensemen with Mikhail Sergachev (lower body), Haydn Fleury (hand) and Erik Cernak (upper body) all sidelined, but they won't have to play short. Sheary was considered a game-time decision, and with 13 forwards dressing for the contest, his ice time may be even more limited than usual -- he's averaged just 10:41 per game this season.

  • Lightning's Conor Sheary: Game-time decision

    Sheary (hand) will be a game-time call versus the Winnipeg on Tuesday, Ken Wiebe of The Winnipeg Free Press reports.

    The Lightning are dealing with a bunch of injuries among their defensemen, so if Sheary is able to play, the team may be forced to roll with 13 forwards and five blueliners Tuesday. If he's not able to play, Tampa Bay may just have to play a player short against the Jets. Either way, confirmation on Sheary's status should surface once the Bolts take the ice for pregame warmups.

  • Lightning's Conor Sheary: Won't play Sunday

    Sheary (hand) won't play Sunday versus the Canadiens, Chris Krenn of the Lightning's official site reports.

    Sheary was injured Saturday versus the Rangers, and the results of further tests have not yet been revealed. Austin Watson will play on the third line with Mikey Eyssimont moving down to the fourth line for Sunday's contest. The Lightning's next match Tuesday versus the Jets to begin a three-game road trip.

  • Lightning's Conor Sheary: Needs further evaluation

    Sheary will be evaluated for a hand or finger injury Sunday after leaving Saturday's game versus the Rangers in the second period, Gabby Shirley of Bally Sports Florida reports.

    Sheary tried to play through the injury initially, but he couldn't finish the contest. If he can't play Sunday versus the Canadiens, Austin Watson will likely check back into the lineup on the fourth line.

  • Lightning's Conor Sheary: Activated off LTIR

    Sheary (upper body) was removed from the long-term injured reserve list Thursday, per the NHL media site.

    Sheary has a goal and three points in 13 contests with Tampa Bay this season. Now that he's activated, Sheary might serve in a bottom-six capacity Thursday versus Edmonton. Mitchell Chaffee, who logged 6:56 of ice time in Tuesday's 4-1 loss to Vancouver, was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Thursday, so there's an opening for Sheary in the lineup.

  • Lightning's Conor Sheary: Moves to LTIR

    Sheary (upper body) was placed on long-term injured reserve Tuesday, per CapFriendly.

    The Lightning used the cap space to bring up defenseman Philippe Myers and forward Mitchell Chaffee from AHL Syracuse on Tuesday. Tampa Bay has a flu bug circulating through the team, so reinforcements were deemed to be necessary. Sheary practiced Monday and appears to be nearing a return to the lineup. He is eligible to be activated whenever he is ready to play.

  • Lightning's Conor Sheary: Nearing return

    Per coach Jon Cooper, Sheary (upper body) is likely to return during the Lightning's trip out West that begins Dec. 9, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

    Sheary was injured Nov. 7 versus Montreal and has missed the last 10 games. Sheary was off to a slow offensive start before his injury, scoring once while adding a pair of assists in 13 games.

  • Lightning's Conor Sheary: On IR

    Sheary (upper body) was placed on the injured reserve list Wednesday, per Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times.

    Sheary sustained the injury during Tuesday's 5-3 win over Montreal. He has a goal and three points in 13 contests this season. The 31-year-old will be eligible to be activated off injured reserve in time for Tampa Bay's contest against Chicago on Nov. 16. In the meantime, Waltteri Merela was called up from AHL Syracuse on Wednesday.

  • Lightning's Conor Sheary: Exits early Tuesday

    Sheary appeared to get hurt after he was hit with a shot on his first shift in Tuesday's game versus the Canadiens, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

    Sheary stayed on the bench in the first period but didn't come out for the second. Per the team, Sheary will miss the remainder of the contest. If Sheary can't play Thursday versus the Blackhawks, Austin Watson will likely rejoin the lineup.

  • Lightning's Conor Sheary: Good start in new city

    Sheary scored a goal while skating on a line with Brandon Hagel and Anthony Cirelli in Monday's preseason loss to Carolina.

    Sheary is a capable winger when slotted beside the right line mates, and at first glance, it appears as though he has found a good match. Together, the trio had three scoring chances to just one against Monday. They also generated 15 shot attempts while surrendering only six. If Sheary sticks on line two, it would mean he would likely skate with Cirelli and Steven Stamkos. In that situation, he could be a late-round gem.

  • Lightning's Conor Sheary: Inks three-year deal with Tampa Bay

    Sheary signed a three-year, $6 million contract with the Lightning on Saturday.

    Sheary notched 15 goals, 37 points and 154 shots on net in 82 games with Washington last season. He could be a good fit on the third line of Tampa Bay, but the versatile winger may find himself bouncing around the lineup in 2023-24.

  • Capitals' Conor Sheary: Snags helper in win

    Sheary recorded an assist in Monday's 5-2 victory over the Islanders.

    Sheary has helpers in back-to-back games, giving him six points in his previous nine outings. While the Caps won't be making the playoffs, the 30-year-old winger should be capable of offering decent fantasy value in Washington's final two contests. The strong end to the campaign should help Sheary secure a new contract in the offseason, though whether he returns to the Caps remains to be seen.

  • Capitals' Conor Sheary: Pots goal Tuesday

    Sheary registered a goal while logging 13:30 of ice time during Tuesday's 7-6 overtime loss to the Blue Jackets.

    The goal snapped a seven-game point drought for Sheary, who has run remarkably cold since a hot start to the season with only two goals and six points in 33 games since the calendar rolled into 2023. The 30-year-old has yet to be scratched from the lineup, but without any sustained offensive production or exposure to top-six minutes, he possesses negligible fantasy value at this point.

  • Capitals' Conor Sheary: Dishes helper

    Sheary tallied an assist and added four shots during Saturday's 8-3 win over the Sharks.

    The helper snapped an 11-game point drought for Sheary, who had been rumored to be on the trade block prior to Friday's trade deadline. The 30-year-old had been a valuable contributor when the Capitals were struggling earlier in the season, but he's posted just one goal and five points in 25 games since the start of 2023 and isn't much of a fantasy asset at this point unless he can start generating offense more consistently.

  • Capitals' Conor Sheary: Finds twine in loss

    Sheary scored a goal on five shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche.

    Sheary got the Capitals on the board in the second period, and he had a number of dangerous chances to add more throughout the game. The winger had been held off the scoresheet over his last seven outings prior to ending the skid Tuesday. He's up to 12 tallies, 17 helpers, 101 shots on net, 39 hits and a plus-8 rating through 50 contests overall.

  • Capitals' Conor Sheary: Stays hot in loss

    Sheary tallied an assist and dished three hits during Friday's 3-2 loss to the Predators.

    The helper gives Sheary nine points over his last seven games -- alongside a sterling plus-11 rating. The 30-year-old has been glued to the top line alongside Alex Ovechkin in recent weeks, but the imminent return of Tom Wilson (knee) and Nicklas Backstrom (hip) is likely to drastically alter the makeup of Washington's top six, which could lead to a reduced role for Sheary. The speedy winger should continue to be a valuable role player for the Capitals, but fantasy managers should keep an eye on his usage in coming games to determine his fantasy upside moving forward.

  • Capitals' Conor Sheary: Two points in Tuesday's win

    Sheary scored a goal and an assist in Tuesday's 4-0 win over the Rangers.

    Darcy Kuemper didn't need much offensive support for the Capitals, but Sheary supplied plenty anyway, helping to set up Erik Gustafsson late in the second period before blocking a shot with his skate late in the third and calmly flipping it the length of the ice for an empty-netter. Sheary has back-to-back two-point performances sandwiched around the holiday break, continuing a strong December that's seen him pile up four goals and 12 points in 13 games.

  • Capitals' Conor Sheary: Two apples on historic night

    Sheary delivered two assists in a 4-1 win over Winnipeg on Friday.

    He snapped a three-game point slump. Sheary will go down in history as getting a secondary assist on Alex Ovechkin's 801st goal -- the one that tied Gordie Howe for second all-time on the goal list. Sheary will have some fantasy value as long as he's hopping the boards alongside No. 8.
