PIT gets a 2019 fourth-round pick that could become a third-round pick. No salary retained in the deal. https://t.co/Z0X7N3EZZ6— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) June 27, 2018
According to Bob McKenzie, the Penguins will receive a fourth round draft pick in 2019, which could conditionally become a third round pick. No details on the conditions are available at this time.
Sheary, who captained the UMass hockey team in 2013-14 was a star for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in the AHL, scoring 81 points (27G, 54A) in 90 games. In his 184 NHL contests, Sheary has contributed 93 points (48G, 45A). His $3 million cap hit was too much for Pittsburgh, but should not be a problem for a Buffalo team that has some space.
Journeyman Hunwick (117P, 25G, 92A) adds defensive depth to the Sabres’ roster, and could easily be a veteran presence for Rochester if he cannot find a spot in Buffalo’s lineup.
Details and analysis will follow this exciting announcement.
