Hometown: Everett, MA
Team: San Antonio Rampage (AHL)
Taken in the second round (50th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, Connor Brickley spent four seasons at the University of Vermont recording 48 points (21-27—48) in 117 games. The former University of Vermont Catamount struggled a bit with injury issues in college, but has bounced back in a big way this season for San Antonio.
The Rampage rookie has recorded 24 points (13-11—24) in 41 games this season for San Antonio. Brickley has recorded seven points in November, December and January each, while his 13 goals this season ranks him third in goals for the Silver and Black.
Brickley may be one of the top-five point producers this season for the Rampage, but there is more to the 22-year old’s game than just offense. A reliable two-way player, Brickley leads the Rampage with a plus-ten rating. His size doesn’t tell the tale for Brickley as he can play the physical aspect of the game as well and plays with determination to outwork his opponents each shift.
Coming from a hockey family, Brickley is the nephew of former NHLer Andy Brickley. With hockey in his blood, Brickley continues to prove his game each night with the Rampage as he looks to help push the Rampage into the playoffs.
