Buffalo Sabres general manager Jason Botterill didn't wait for free agency to start wheeling and dealing. On Wednesday, Botterill called up his former boss and made a deal with the Pittsburgh Penguins, sending left-winger Conor Sheary and defenseman Matt Hunwick to the Sabres in exchange for a conditional 2019 fourth-round pick, according to multiple reports. 

Sheary, 26, tallied 30 points in 79 games with the Penguins last season. In 184 career games, Sheary has 48 goals, 45 assists, and 93 points.

Hunwick, 33, appeared in 42 games with the Penguins last year, scoring 10 points. Like Sheary, Hunwick also has two-years left on his contract with a $2.25 million cap hit.
