This years stats at MSU and profile

A long shot to become a fourth liner but if he makes it then he seems to be the player who will protect his team mates.
He's a big boy that seems to enjoy the physical aspects of the game for sure, was said to be one of the top fighters in the USHL and at Michigan St, he seems to take the body and go to the net hard despite his team having a disappointing season so far.

But it's hard to really evaluate his season since he's a rare overaged freshman, as he's only a couple months younger then David Fischer who is in his junior year, so Conboy has the advantage of being an more experienced rookie that is already physically mature as he will turn 21 just after this season ends.

Still it's nice to have a big physical forward that can fight in the system, that at least has some hands, so who's to say how much he will improve at Michigan St over the next few seasons before turning pro. The Habs will have a lot of time to look him over before they even have to make a decision on him, so hopefully he continues to progress.
