The Washington Capitals have signed forward Conor Sheary to a one-year contract worth $735,000, the team announced Tuesday.

Sheary posted 10 goals and 23 points between the Buffalo Sabres and Pittsburgh Penguins last season. He was tied for sixth among Buffalo forwards with 19 points before he was traded back to Pittsburgh with Evan Rodrigues for Dominik Kahun in February.

A two-time Stanley Cup winner with the Penguins in 2016 and 2017, his 61 playoff games are tied for 21st in the NHL among forwards. In his career, the 28-year-old has registered 72 goals and 150 points in 325 regular season games.

Sheary was undrafted and signed as a free agent with the Penguins in 2015.
