WEST CHESTER, Pa. - Kenny Connors of Glen Mills, Pa. started his elite hockey play with the Jr. Flyers. He played across the Atlantic Affiliate in the Atlantic Youth Hockey League before heading to the USHL with the Dubuque Fighting Saints.
A center, Connors had a relatively quiet 2020-2021 season, recording only 18 points in 50 games played. But this past season was his breakout, when he recorded 25 goals and 31 assists across 61 games played with the Fighting Saints.
In the fall, he is headed to University of Massachusetts, where he will join the NCAA Division-I team and further develop his skills. He will be fresh off of USA Hockey’s National Junior Evaluation Camp in Plymouth, Mich.
Connors was selected by the LA Kings in the fourth round of the 2022 NHL Draft, and was the 103rd overall pick.
