Connolly, Mike - LW - Camrose

Mike Connolly / Camrose Kodiaks AJHL
LW-L / 5-7.25, 174 / 03-Jul-1989

Skating: 65 / Skill: 55 / Sense: 55 / Compete: 70 / Tough: 55

Strengths: Plays with lots of energy and heart. Excellent speed and agility. Good skill level.

Weaknesses: Just too small.

Mighty mite has lots of grit, speed, and skill. Ultra high energy level and competitiveness. Good speed and lateral quickness. Aggressive and disruptive forechecker. Came back from a partial knee ligament tear suffered in January to play for the Kodiaks in the playoffs.

Summary: May not ever make it to the NHL, but he'll show your prospects how to play with heart in the AHL.

Target/Want: I'd love to give this kid a chance with a 6th or 7th round pick.
