Chris Conner Signs With Red Wings

Friday, July 8, 2011
I forgot to mention this when it happened, mainly because Chris Conner only played 11 games with the WBS Penguins before becoming a full-time Pittsburgh Penguin last season.

The speedy smaller forward signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Detroit Red Wings and from Ken Holland's quote in the Detroit Free Press, it looks like Conner will be playing in the AHL next year with the Grand Rapids Griffins.
He’s got speed. He’s got skill,” Holland said. “We want some depth. We’ve missed the playoffs in Grand Rapids the last three years. We want to get that team back into a playoff spot. 
In 60 games with the NHL Penguins this season, Conner registered seven goals and nine assists.
