Scouting Report

Strengths: 

Conacher's speed and willingness to go to the high traffic areas will earn him spot duty on a team's scoring lines, along with offensive skill set.

Weaknesses: 

His lack of size and effectiveness on the boards may limit long-term NHL success as he's had trouble translating a stellar minor league and European league career to consistent NHL production.

Projection: 

Fast and hard-working energy liner with scoring line upside
