Pro Hockey Notes: Conroy's Career Over?


Potsdam native Craig Conroy was placed on waivers this morning and his National Hockey League career could be at an end.
Conroy, a Hobey Baker Award finalist while at Clarkson, has played in only 18 games this season for the Calgary Flames and has two goals. He played in his 1,000th NHL game earlier in the season.
According to the Calgary Herald, it's believed that Conroy asked to be put on waivers for the purpose of retiring. It's not expected that he'd join the Flames American Hockey League affiliate in Abbotsford, British Columbia.
Conroy was drafted by the Montreal Canadiens in 1990 and signed with the club after his career at Clarkson ended in 1994. He's played in 1,009 NHL games and has scored 182 goals with 360 assists.
He has not suited up in 27 of Calgary's last 28 games.
Conroy helped lead the Flames to the Stanley Cup Finals in 2004, scoring a goal in game seven:
