If the NHL does not have a lockout, then this upcoming season might be a great one for defenseman Brian Connelly.
Connelly played 4 seasons of college hockey in the WCHA. He then went on to play 3 seasons in the AHL. Slowly but surely, he is blossoming into a solid player at the AHL level. He played in the AHL All-Star Game in 2011 and 2012. He was the second-overall leading scorer among defenseen in the AHL last year, and was named to the Second All-Star Team.
Back in February, Connelly was traded to the Calgary Flames, and finished the season with their AHL affiliate in Abbotsford. He then signed a 2-way deal with the Minnesota Wild. Considering that Connelly has had a decent career in the AHL thus far, he may finally get a shot in the NHL.
