Connor was selected in the 2nd round of the 2010 OHL Priority Selection Draft by the Erie Otters out
of the York-Simcoe Express Minor Midget Program. Connor made the Otters as a 16 year old and
scored 5 goals in his rookie season. Connor was primed to enter the 2012 NHL Draft but a shoulder
injury kept him out of all but six games last year, one of which he spent playing goalie for Erie after
they went into a game in Niagara with only one netminder. That one goaltender was promptly run by
Alex Friesen during his first shift, causing injury, which saw Connor play goal for the entire game,
minus the first few seconds. This was a once in a lifetime experience and Connor actually made 30+
saves in this game. Entering the 2012-2013 season, Connor was healthy and ready to show what he’s
capable of in hopes of being a re-entry selection at the NHL Draft.

Connor did a good job posting a 20+ goal season on the fourth lowest scoring team in the OHL.
Connor played top power play minutes for the Otters and can consistently be found in the crease area.
He battles extremely hard out front making life difficult for goaltenders and defenders due to his huge
frame. He has pretty good hands in the goal area and finishes many of his goals using his frame and
his hands to put the puck in the back of the net. He also displays good physicality. He finishes his
checks regularly and isn’t afraid to drop the gloves. He hit double digits for fights this past season
and took on some of the better fighters in the league. Connor’s ability to read plays and make quick
decisions seems to go underrated because of his size and physicality but he regularly makes smart
plays with the puck, but will have the occasional miscue. He contributed defensively, and while he
wasn’t exceptional in this area of the game, he was usually reliable.

Connor has a few things working against him. Of course, the loss of most of a whole year of
development with a shoulder injury does hurt him. The second is his skating ability. Connor has a
huge frame and has the strength that will get him through junior, and should even help him at the pro
level, but his skating is simply not fast enough. He doesn’t have very good quickness, he looks heavy
on his feet, and this is an area that may scare off some teams. It will take a great deal of work for him
to get his skating up to average. It likely will never be an asset, but this is a major area of
improvement for Connor. He has the high end upside of a low end top six power forward. He plays
the game he would need to in order to be effective in that role. He knows how to use his size and has
the ability to score some goals. This, however, is only a reality if his skating improves.

Quotable: “Connor looked a lot more comfortable this season. He’s shown with
or without goalie pads he’s willing to get in front of some shots, but he’s at his
best when he’s in the slot. Tough to move, causes disruptions and can put the
puck in the back of the net. I just hope his skating improves.” - Ryan Yessie

Quotable: “He was passed over last year but gets a free pass for a second look.
He has size and work ethic.” - Mark Edwards

First interview: NA

Connor Crisp is the equivalent to the Jason Missiaen pick....Why? He would not have been available later on?

It's our fault....we have to stop talking about big, size and grit from now on...

I'm not sure I get it, maybe we could've taken a shot at Subban instead

Certainly out of left field. Surprised we didn't go with Hayden.
