NHL Central Scouting's Jack Barzee
"Connor's highly motivated, never takes a shift off and is combative. I'd be surprised if he's not taken by the third round. Everybody on our staff has seen this kid and they all like him."
Des Moines Buccaneers head coach Mike Geuntzel
“Connor is a very strong skater who plays hard all the time. He finished his checks all over the ice and brings an intensity level to each and every game. Has had a good offensive year and scored some big goals for a rookie in the USHL.”
