He was one of our UDFA signings. He's not an ECHLer--we just signed him out UMass-Amherst. He'll almost certainly be starting in the AHL, as he's a good prospect from all reports.
Here's his HF profile:
EDIT: I see the HF prospect capsule doesn't really have anything on him. He's said to have good vision and possesses excellent ability to move the puck, and is a good PP QB. Apparently he also likes to throw his body around. People watching the team said he was easily their best defenseman and one of the best in the conference (Hockey East).
Conor Allen, D, UMass-Amherst Minutemen (Hockey East)
Signed as a free agent, March 29th, 2013
A star athlete and student, when Conor Allen decided to leave Umass-Amherst, he was in high demand. The 6'1, 203 pound blueliner was exactly the type of defenseman that would fit into the Rangers' mold, so New York was delighted to sign Allen to a two-year entry-level deal in late March. Expected to be a two-way defenseman, who has a good shot on the power play, can play a physical game, and loves to compete for the puck, Allen posted five goals, 14 assists in 33 games for the Minutemen this past season, while accumulating 14 penalty minutes and a plus-one rating. The 23-year old will get a good look in training camp next fall, but is likely to begin the season in Connecticut.
It's just pain.
