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.
