Tampa Bay Lightning

The Lightning re-signed Cory Conacher to a two-year extension worth $1.3M ($650K AAV).

After spending a season in Switzerland, Conacher returned to the Lightning last season and scored one goal and three assists (four points) in 11 games with the Lightning. He spent the majority of the season in the AHL, where he amassed 60 points (17G / 43A) in 56 games with the Syracuse Crunch.

The Lightning have recalled Cory Conacher from Syracuse (AHL).

Conacher has 10 goals and 32 assists (42 points) in 41 games with Syracuse this season, but is likely only coming up as insurance for Tyler Johnson, who’s status is uncertain for tonight’s game. Conacher also has one goal and one assist in seven NHL games this year.

Conacher will start the season on the Islanders top-line with John Tavares and Kyle Okposo.

Heading into training camp everyone wondered who would be the third man on this line. A lot of people picked Brock Nelson as the man who would fill the role. Some thought maybe Ryan Strome would get the nod, or even Josh Bailey. But, it will be Conacher who will start there on opening night. “It’s pretty special,” Conacher said about the opportunity to play on the top line. “I’ve gotten this opportunity before, in Tampa when I first started my career, and I just have to try to take advantage of this opportunity." Conacher is a speedy winger who is a definite fantasy sleeper heading into the season, but like he said he needs to take advantage of the opportunity he has been given.

The Sabres have claimed Cory Conacher off of waivers from Ottawa.

Conacher along with a fourth-round pick was sent to the Senators for Ben Bishop last season. Bishop has been amazing this season, while Conacher has struggled severely and now finds himself in Buffalo. The 24-year-old spent four years at nearby Canisius College, so this is a bit of a homecoming for Conacher. He recorded four goals and 16 assists (20 points) in 60 games with Ottawa this season.

Based on the morning skate, Conacher will return to the lineup tonight after being a healthy scratch on Saturday.

Conacher was a healthy scratch after recording just one assist in his last 10 games. After being acquired from Tampa Bay for goaltender Ben Bishop, Conacher has just four goals and six assists (10 points) in 41 games with Ottawa. Before he was traded he had 24 points in 35 games with the Lightning. He was expected to compete for a top-6 job at the start of the season, but that has not developed. He will likely skate on the fourth line with Mika Zibanejad and Matt Kassian, while Mike Hoffman takes a seat.

The Ottawa Senators have dealt goaltender Ben Bishop to the Tampa Bay Lightning for Cory Conacher and a 4th round pick.

Conacher got off to a hot start in Tampa Bay posting 18 points in his first 21 games. However he has slowed down lately recording just six points in his last 14 games. His nine goals and 24 points will lead the Senators in each category.

Guy Boucher confirms Cory Conacher has made the roster.

Conacher had 80 points in 75 games in the AHL last year and 28 in 36 during the lockout, is expected to play alongside Vincent Lecavalier and Teddy Purcell on the Lightning's 2nd line. If he gets off to a hot start and sticks with the this line he could be a good fantasy pickup. Keep an eye on him.
