Florida Panthers ink forward Connor Brickley to entry-level contract

Tallon Inc. comes to terms with hard-working 2010 second-rounder

The Florida Panthers added a little more toughness to the fold with the signing of 22-year-old forward Connor Brickley. The Cats selected Brickely 50th overall in the 2010 Entry Draft.

Brickley just finished his fourth season playing for the University of Vermont Catamounts. After his team was eliminated from the NCAA Tournament, he signed an ATO with the San Antonio Rampage and suited up for eight games, where he tallied a goal, an assist, and finished with a plus-one rating.

In his four years with the Catamounts, the Massachusetts native scored 21 goals and added 27 assists in 117 games. The 15 points he amassed during his senior season was a career-high.

Brickley projects as a diligent checking-line player who will need some time in the AHL to hone his craft before he's ready to move up to the NHL. Injuries played a part in stunting his development while he was at Vermont. Look for him to get plenty of ice time in San Antonio next season.
