PITTSBURGH (AP) The Pittsburgh Penguins have agreed to terms with forward Conor Sheary on a $9 million, three-year deal.

Sheary will count $3 million against the salary cap through 2019-20. General manager Jim Rutherford announced the contract for the restricted free agent Sunday.

Sheary has been part of Pittsburgh's back-to-back Stanley Cup champion teams, putting up 17 points in 45 games. He spent significant time as a linemate of Sidney Crosby's during the 2016 Cup run.
