Connor Brickley (born February 25, 1992) is an American professional ice hockey Center. He is currently playing for the Charlotte Checkers in the American Hockey League (AHL) while under contract to the Carolina Hurricanes in the National Hockey League (NHL). He was selected in the second round, 50th overall, by the Florida Panthers in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
Playing career[edit | edit source]
After playing junior hockey with the Des Moines Buccaneers and the U.S. National Development Team in the United States Hockey League, Brickley committed to a collegiate career with the University of Vermont of the Hockey East.
Upon completion of his senior year with the Catamounts, he was immediately assigned to the Panthers' AHL affiliate, the San Antonio Rampage on an amateur try-out contract to make his professional debut to end the 2013–14 season. Brickley was signed to a two-year entry-level contract with the Florida Panthers on April 21, 2014.
In his first full professional season with the Rampage in the 2014–15 season, Brickley adapted quickly the professional circuit in amassing 22 goals and 47 points in 73 games. After a strong off-season of development, Brickley impressed at his second Panthers training camp and made the club's opening night roster to begin the 2015–16 season. He made his NHL debut with the Panthers in a 7-1 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on October 10, 2015. In his third game, Brickley recorded his first NHL goal, and point, in a 4-1 victory over the Carolina Hurricanes on October 13, 2015.
Approaching the beginning of the 2016–17 season, Brickley was traded by the Panthers to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for Brody Sutter on October 11, 2016. He was directly assigned to AHL affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers.
