The EIHL’s Cardiff Devils have announced that they have released forward Andrew Conboy.

Conboy had a tough stint in the UK this year, having already been suspended three times this season and has served two of his current 12-match suspension. Prior to this season, Conboy played 150 American League matches for Hamilton Bulldogs and 49 games in the ECHL, recording 216 penalty minutes in just one season of action.

Conboy was banned for 12 matches for an attempted eye gouge ten days ago. Earlier this season, Derek Campbell was suspended for the remainder of the EIHL campaign after doing exactly the same thing. Additionally, Conboy was suspended for punching a ref earlier in the season, as well as headbutting an opponent at the start of the season.

Conboy was drafted 142nd overall by the Montréal Canadiens in 2007.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
