INDY SIGNS GOALTENDER CONOR O’BRIEN

INDIANAPOLISThe Indy Fuel announced Friday that they have signed goaltender Conor O’Brien to a Standard Player Contract for the 2022-23 season.

O’Brien, 25, comes to the Indy Fuel from the ECHL’s Adirondack Thunder, who signed him in April 2022. The 6’2”, 216-pound goaltender from Pinellas Park, Florida made his pro hockey debut with the Thunder on April 16, 2022, stopping an impressive 34 shots in a 1-0 loss to the Reading Royals.

Prior to turning pro, O’Brien played four seasons (2018-19 through 2021-22) with the NCAA’s Division III Endicott College. There he played a total of 75 games and posted a 2.00 goals-against average and a .934 save percentage. He led all of Division III during the 2021-22 season in save percentage with a .949% overall.
