Conner was recalled by the Flyers along with seven others following the conclusion of the AHL Lehigh Valley season. Conner was the leading scorer on the Phantoms with 55 points in 58 contests. In order to ensure they have the necessary depth for a playoff run, Philadelphia also promoted blueliners Mark Alt, Davis Drewiske, Robert Hagg, and Samuel Morin along with forwards Cole Bardeau and Taylor Leier. Rounding out their Black Aces call-ups was netminder Anthony Stolarz. Barring injuries, none of these prospects is expected to crack the lineup during the postseason.
Conner was sent back down to AHL Lehigh Valley, Wayne Fish of the Burlington City Times reports. Conner had four goals and eight points for AHL Lehigh Valley in eight games and was called up for the Flyers during a back-to-back. However, he was a healthy scratch for both games. He'll return back to the AHL where he's the team's second-leading scorer. He's replaced by Davis Drewiske on the NHL roster.
Conner was recalled by the Flyers on Sunday, CSN Philadelphia reports. Conner will give the Flyers some forward depth for the rest of their five-game road trip with Pierre-Edouard Bellemare on injured reserve and Sean Couturier still out with a concussion. The veteran winger has gotten off to a hot start with AHL Lehigh Valley, posting eight points in eight games, but will likely just fill in a role on the fourth line if he draws into the lineup, limiting any fantasy upside.
Chris Conner signed a two-year, two-way contract with the Flyers on Wednesday, Tim Riday of CSN Philadephia reports.
The Capitals announced on Tuesday that they have sent Chris Conner back to AHL Hershey.
