There was some irony seeing third-liner Conor Sheary pot his fourth and fifth goals of the season for the Washington Capitals against the San Jose Sharks. This helped the Capitals to a 4-0 victory on Saturday night.
Last October, San Jose Hockey Now reported that the Sharks and then-UFA Sheary were talking.
GM Doug Wilson did not end up with Sheary, for reasons unclear. Did the Sharks pass? Or did Sheary opt for the Caps?
Whatever the reason, in December, on the eve of the COVID-shortened 2020-21 campaign, Sheary agreed to a one-year, $735,000 pact with Washington.
