Making The Grade – Erik Condra



After a solid end to the 2010-11 campaign where Condra was given a chance to play 26 games, Erik Condra earned a 2 year, 1 way contract.  He was expected to be a solid contributor, play well defensively and chip in the occasional goal here and there.


Condra was very solid and dependable defensively, as well as while on the PK.  He tied Daniel Alfredsson for the club lead with 4 short-handed points (2G, 2A).  He chipped in his first career playoff goal in the game 1 loss to the Rangers.


Condra scored only 1 goal in his last 43 games, which even for a player not counted on for offense, has to be considered a long drought.


In his first full season, Condra obviously set career high in goals (8) assists (17) and points (25) and was plus 11, while playing just under 15 minutes per game.

Condra did his job, and although he didn’t quite set the pace that he did in his audition the previous year, his stats were adequate over the first half, but left something to be desired over the latter stages of the season.  My grade for Erik Condra for the 2011-12 season:
