“Conner has been a key contributor to the Saints for the past three seasons. He has a tremendous work ethic and many great leadership qualities. It was a difficult decision for our organization, and one that we didn’t take lightly. We want to thank Conner for everything he’s done for the organization on and off the ice and wish him all the best in his future endeavors.”
