Conor Garland (born March 11, 1996) is an American professional ice hockey winger. He is currently playing with the Arizona Coyotes organization of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Prior to turning professional, Garland played for the Moncton Wildcats in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) where he was awarded the Michel Brière Memorial Trophy as the QMJHL Most Valuable Player and twice selected for the QMJHL First All-Star Team.

Playing career[edit | edit source]

Garland played for Shattuck-Saint Mary's, a boarding school in Minnesota, for the 2010–11 season before returning home and playing for the Boston Junior Bruins in the Empire Junior Hockey League (EmJHL) for the 2011–12 season. After beginning the 2012–13 season with the Muskegon Lumberjacks in the United States Hockey League (USHL), Garland moved to playing for the Moncton Wildcats in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL), foregoing his NCAA eligibility.[1][2]

During the 2014–15 season, while playing with the Wildcats, Garland led both the QMJHL and Canadian Hockey League (CHL) with 129 points. He was named to the QMJHL First All-Star Team, and was further honored when he was awarded the Michel Brière Memorial Trophy as the QMJHL Most Valuable Player.[3] Garland was then selected 123rd overall in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, by the Arizona Coyotes.

In the following 2015–16 season, while in his final season of junior with the Wildcats, Garland was signed to a three-year entry-level contract by the Coyotes on December 24, 2015.[4] Garland joined the Coyotes American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Tucson Roadrunners, for the 2016–17 season. He recorded his first professional goal on December 2, 2016, against the San Diego Gulls.[5]

Garland began the 2018–19 season with the Roadrunners but was called up to the NHL in December. He made his NHL debut on December 8, 2018, in a 5–3 loss to the San Jose Sharks.[6] Having established a role within the Coyotes, adding 12 goals in 35 games, Garland was signed to a two-year, $1.55 million contract extension on February 27, 2019.[7]
