Conacher Agrees To Terms

The New York Islanders announced today that Cory Conacher has agreed to terms on a one-year National Hockey League contract.

Conacher, 24, scored 26 points (seven goals, 19 assists) in 79 games last season with the Ottawa Senators and Buffalo Sabres. The Burlington, ON, native opened his second NHL season with Ottawa and played 60 games, before being claimed off waivers by Buffalo on March 5.

A 5’8, 180-pound forward, Conacher has appeared in 126 career NHL games with Buffalo, Ottawa and the Tampa Bay Lightning, totaling 55 points (18 goals, 37 assists). He’s also appeared in 118 career American Hockey League games with the Rochester Americans, Milwaukee Admirals, Norfolk Admirals and Syracuse Crunch, totaling 114 points (55 goals, 59 assists).

While playing for Norfolk in 2011-12, Conacher was awarded the Les Cunningham Award as the league’s Most Valuable Player and was also the recipient of the AHL’s Dudley “Red” Garrett Memorial Award, given annually to the league’s most outstanding rookie. He was named to the AHL All-Rookie team and helped the Admirals capture the team’s first Calder Cup.

Conacher played four years at Canisius College (Atlantic Hockey Association) in Buffalo, where he became the Golden Griffins’ career leader in points (147) and goals (62) and was named the Atlantic Hockey Player of the Year in 2009-10.
