Since arriving in Ottawa in that April 2013 deal, Conacher has bounced around four organizations and finished out last season at AHL Utica, where he tallied seven goals and 16 points in 20 games. He's still just 25 years old, but is likely bound for the minors to start the 2015-16 campaign.

  • Isles Waive Conacher

    Analysis: Given the chance to claim a top-line role for the Islanders early in the season, Cory Conacher squandered the opportunity before soon becoming a routine healthy scratch.

Conacher has been averaging 14:25 of ice time over 11 games this season, but that number figures to fall in subsequent contests, with the Isles deciding to replace him on the top line with Brock Nelson.
