The Pittsburgh Penguins inked forward Conor Sheary to a three-year, $9-million contract, the team announced Sunday.

Sheary finished the regular season tied for third on the Penguins with 23 goals and ranked fourth with 53 points despite being limited to 61 games.

The 25-year-old clicked with Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel on Pittsburgh’s top line, helping the Penguins win their second consecutive Stanley Cup championship in his second NHL campaign.

“There was a three or four-week period there (when) Sid and Jake and Conor were really special,” Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford told Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “They were really good together.”

Sheary was a restricted free agent who had a salary arbitration hearing scheduled for Friday.

The Penguins now have $3.28 million in remaining cap space, according to CapFriendly.
