Lightning's Cory Conacher: Reassigned to AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conacher was sent down to AHL Syracuse on Tuesday.

Conacher returns to the minors, where he's produced 17 points in 20 games this season. In four games at the NHL level in 2019-20, the 29-year-old has managed an assist, three hits and a blocked shot.

Lightning's Cory Conacher: Bounces back to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lightning recalled Conacher from AHL Syracuse on Monday.

Conacher was just sent down to bus league Friday, but the Lightning may be dealing with some injuries to their forward corps ahead of Monday's contest against the Islanders. The 29-year-old forward has played three games with the big club this year, posting a goal and three shots on net.

Lightning's Cory Conacher: Sent to AHL affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tampa Bay reassigned Conacher to AHL Syracuse on Friday.

Alex Killorn (lower body) returned to action Thursday against Minnesota, so the Lightning are no longer in need of Conacher's services on the wing. The 29-year-old will continue to be one of the first players Tampa Bay turns to when dealing with injuries up front, but he won't have any fantasy value in 2019-20.

Lightning's Cory Conacher: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lightning recalled Conacher from AHL Syracuse on Thursday.

Conacher's promotion suggests Alex Killorn (lower body) may not be available for Thursday's matchup with Minnesota. The 29-year-old winger has picked up one helper while averaging 11:04 of ice time in three appearances with the big club this campaign.

Lightning's Cory Conacher: Shifts to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lightning assigned Conacher to AHL Syracuse on Wednesday.

Conacher was brought to the big club since Alex Killorn (lower body) was unable to play, but it appears Killorn may be ready for Thursday's matchup against the Wild. As a result, Conacher will return to minors and look to add to the 19 points he's accrued through 18 contests.

Lightning's Cory Conacher: Called up from minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conacher was recalled from AHL Syracuse on Tuesday.

Conacher has been limited to just three games with the Lightning this season in which he notched one assist, three shots and two hits while averaging 11:04 of ice time. Coach Jon Cooper has repeatedly deployed seven defensemen this year, so the fact that Conacher was called up from the minors doesn't guarantee he will be in the lineup versus Nashville on Tuesday.

Lightning's Cory Conacher: Moves up to NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lightning recalled Conacher from AHL Syracuse on Tuesday.

The 29-year-old has skated in 16 games with Syracuse this season, totaling five goals and seven assists. His promotion ahead of Tuesday's game against the Blues may signal that one of the Lightning's other forwards is tending to an injury.

Lightning's Cory Conacher: Returned to minor-league affiliate
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lightning reassigned Conacher to AHL Syracuse on Thursday.

Conacher has been a healthy scratch for each of Tampa Bay's last two games, so there's no reason for him to stick around just to sit in the press box on a nightly basis. The 29-year-old forward will likely spend nearly all of the campaign in the minors.

Lightning's Cory Conacher: Summoned by parent club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lightning recalled Conacher from AHL Syracuse on Wednesday,'s Mike Morreale reports.

Patrick Maroon (upper body) and Anthony Cirelli (lower body) are both banged up heading into Wednesday's matchup with New Jersey, so Conacher was brought up to serve as an insurance policy. Even if Maroon and Cirelli are both unable to go, Conacher will likely sit as a healthy scratch against the Devils.

Lightning's Cory Conacher: Inks one-year deal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conacher signed a one-year, $700,000 contract extension with Tampa Bay on Wednesday.

Conacher, who was also waived by the Lightning on Wednesday, will thus remain with Tampa Bay through the 2019-20 campaign. The 28-year-old winger is nothing more than an organizational depth option at this stage in his career, so there's no reason for fantasy owners to keep tabs on his status.

Lightning's Cory Conacher: Placed on waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Tampa Bay waived Conacher on Wednesday, Pierre LeBrun of TSN reports.

Conacher has struggled to crack the lineup this season, appearing in just one of the Lightning's first four contests, so this move makes sense. The 28-year-old winger was, however, spotted at Wednesday's practice, so he may remain with the big club instead of heading to the minors if he goes unclaimed.

Lightning's Cory Conacher: Not expected to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conacher (undisclosed) is expected to be a healthy scratch for Saturday's Game 5 matchup, Dan Rosen of reports.

Considering Conacher hasn't played in a game since April 18, it shouldn't come as a surprise he is not going to suit up now that he is healthy. A frequent scratch throughout the regular season, the winger made just 36 appearances for the Lightning, in which he tallied eight goals and four helpers. It will likely take an injury to another forward for the 27-year-old to show up in the lineup the rest of the playoffs.

Lightning's Cory Conacher: Prohibited from taking contact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conacher (undisclosed) was spotted at Tuesday's morning skate wearing a red no-contact jersey, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

This means Conacher will miss an eighth straight contest, as the winger has been a spectator even when healthy. It appears that Chris Kunitz will continue operating in a fourth-line capacity on the left wing with Conacher tending to his undisclosed issue.

Lightning's Cory Conacher: Scores Bolts lone goal Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conacher scored his seventh goal of the season in Wednesday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Sabres.

He'd gone seven games without a point before lighting the lamp Wednesday. Conacher now has 10 points in 28 games with the big club, having bounced between the NHL and AHL all season, and there's no guarantee he keeps his spot once Nikita Kucherov (upper body) and Ondrej Palat (lower body) get healthy.

Lightning's Cory Conacher: Tallies two goals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conacher scored two goals, including the game winner, on two shots in a 7-4 win over the Flames on Thursday.

This is a bit of a surprise, as Conacher has been largely absent from the Lightning's lineup recently. He had been a scratch in Tampa's previous five games, and in eight of their previous nine contests. One game with two goals isn't likely going to change much for the 28-year-old.

Lightning's Cory Conacher: May be demoted despite strong play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Despite his recent solid performance, Conacher may find himself sent down to the minors soon, reports the Tampa Times.

He played in his eighth game of the season Saturday. Once Conacher reaches 10 cumulative games or 30 days up in the NHL, he will have to clear waivers to get sent back to AHL Syracuse. There is a chance the Bolts will swap Conacher out of the lineup after Tuesday's game and replace him with someone from the minors.

Lightning's Cory Conacher: Sticking in NHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conacher is sticking with the Lightning "for now," reports the Tampa Bay Times.

Conacher has notched two goals in the two games he's played this season. He practiced on a line with Yanni Gourde and Alex Killorn on Monday.

Lightning's Cory Conacher: Brought up to big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Lightning recalled Conacher from AHL Syracuse on Friday.

Cedric Paquette (suspension) won't be available for Saturday's matchup with San Jose, so Conacher will round out Tampa Bay's depth up front against the Sharks. The 27-year-old forward has racked up seven goals and 15 points in 18 games in the minors this season.

Lightning's Cory Conacher: Demoted Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conacher was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Sunday.

The second-term Lightning player was given somewhat of a raw deal in being sent down Sunday, as he potted a goal and finished with a plus-1 rating in the lone game he played during his recall. That said, even if Conacher is recalled again, don't expect him to replicate that type of production consistently.

Lightning's Cory Conacher: Recalled from AHL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Conacher was recalled from the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL on Friday.

The Lightning placed Conacher on waivers near the start of the season before assigning him to the Crunch, where he's appeared in 17 games and scored a team-high six goals. He'll now join the Lightning in the big leagues, where he has a chance to see the ice for their weekend two-game set, starting with Friday's matchup with the Capitals.
