(TNS) — One of Conor Sheary’s goals was ac­com­plished Sun­day when he signed a three-year, $9 mil­lion con­tract ex­ten­sion with the Pitts­burgh Pen­guins. Another re­mains.

For as much as Sheary is thrilled for the big­gest pay­day of his NHL ca­reer, he’s also in­tent on prov­ing that his late-sea­son slump was a one-time deal.

“Com­ing off of last sea­son, I don’t want to have a slump and have ev­ery­one think it was a one-time thing,” Sheary said. “I want to be con­sis­tent in my play. I want to make sure that I bring the ef­fort and en­ergy to help the team win.”

In 105 ca­reer reg­u­larsea­son games, Sheary, a 25-year-old na­tive of Winch­ester, Mass., has 30 goals and 63 points.
