From: Westland, MI
Height: 5'8
Weight: 175
Shoots: Left
Drafted: Undrafted
Acquired: Signed 3-Year Contract with Detroit (NHL) 7/7/11
Plus: Speedy, aggressive forechecker... Brings a lot of energy each shift... Opportunistic player forces turnovers and can capitalize on other teams mistakes... Plays either wing...
Minus: Very small by NHL standards... Offense has not come online at higher pro levels...
Organizational Comments: "Conner is one of the leading scorers in the AHL. He had a real good camp, Let's give him an opportunity, let him show what he can do." Ken Holland - Wings General Manager
What GRC says: 2010-11: A high tempo defensive player in the John Vigilante/Matt Ellis mold. Gives his all every shift and at the AHL level can create some offense as well. He should split the season between Grand Rapids and Detroit.
Role: Energy Forward
Projection: NHL 4th liner.
