Despite his recent solid performance, Conacher may find himself sent down to the minors soon, reports the Tampa Times.

EDGE Analysis

He played in his eighth game of the season Saturday. Once Conacher reaches 10 cumulative games or 30 days up in the NHL, he will have to clear waivers to get sent back to AHL Syracuse. There is a chance the Bolts will swap Conacher out of the lineup after Tuesday's game and replace him with someone from the minors.

The Lightning recalled Conacher from AHL Syracuse on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Cedric Paquette (suspension) won't be available for Saturday's matchup with San Jose, so Conacher will round out Tampa Bay's depth up front against the Sharks. The 27-year-old forward has racked up seven goals and 15 points in 18 games in the minors this season.

Conacher was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The second-term Lightning was given somewhat of a raw deal in being sent down Sunday, as he potted a goal and finished with a plus-1 rating in the lone game he played during his recall. That said, even if Conacher is recalled again, don't expect him to replicate that type of production consistently.

Conacher was recalled from the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

The Lightning placed Conacher on waivers near the start of the season before assigning him to the Crunch, where he's appeared in 17 games and scored a team-high six goals. He'll now join the Lightning in the big leagues, where he has a chance to see the ice for their weekend double-header, starting with Friday's matchup with the Capitals.

Conacher was waived by the Lightning on Monday, Rick Ralph of TSN 1290 Winnipeg reports.

EDGE Analysis

The waiver wire is piping hot, with dozens of transactions made by NHL clubs in preparation for the 2017-18 season. For Conacher, it's likely that he's been deemed expendable due to the Bolts having picked up veteran Chris Kunitz -- formerly with the Penguins -- in free agency. Suffice it to say, there's very little a fantasy owner could do with a part-time NHLer like Conacher -- he's drawn into just 26 games since the 2014-15 campaign, though to be fair, he did spent the following season in Switzerland. Given that he's likely to clear waivers, expect AHL Syracuse to be his next destination.

Conacher inked a two-year, two-way deal with Tampa Bay on Wednesday worth $650,000 annually at the NHL level.

EDGE Analysis

Conacher's contract will convert to a one-way ahead of the 2018-19 season which could help him secure a regular role with the Lightning. For now, the 27-year-old will likely start the upcoming campaign in the minors where he racked up 60 points and 113 PIM in 56 outings last year. The center appears to have reignited his career after a one-year stint overseas with Bern SC of the Swiss league.

Conacher was sent down to the minors Monday.

EDGE Analysis

With the Lightning's season over while the Crunch are still chasing the Calder Cup, Conacher was one of five Tampa Bay players reassigned to AHL Syracuse. The winger is currently tied for the team lead in points (56) and will have three remaining games to secure that honor outright. Given his heavy usage at the end of the year, the 27-year-old should probably be considered a favorite to secure a spot on the 23-man roster for the start of the 2017-18 campaign.

Conacher finished with two assists and a plus-2 rating in Friday's 4-2 win against the Canadiens.

EDGE Analysis

Conacher, just recalled from AHL Syracuse on Wednesday, was a huge factor in this victory. However, he is still not worth using in most fantasy formats heading into the regular-season finale against the Sabres on Sunday.

The Lightning recalled Conacher from AHL Syracuse on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Tampa Bay is extremely banged-up at forward, so Conacher's promotion will add some much needed depth up front. The 27-year-old winger has notched two points in eight games with the big club this campaign. He could draw into his ninth game of the season with the Lightning as soon as Thursday against Toronto.
