Ty Conklin Starts His Next Career

We're at that point in the season where you've not only noticed some goalies aren't in the NHL,  but you also start looking around to see where they landed. Some are in Russia, some in Sweden, and for Ty Conklin--well, he's in Peoria, starting a new career as a goalie coach with the St Louis Blues AHL affiliate, the Peoria Rivermen.

Ty Conklin is Winning in GR

Don't look now, but Ty Conklin is winning games for the Grand Rapids Griffins. The Griffins have struggled with goaltending this year. Even Joey MacDonald has had a tough time winning there with a 2.63 GAA. Ty Conklin has started 3 games and won them all with a 1.34 GAA and a .940 SV%. This doesn't mean Conklin will be coming back anytime soon, or ever, but he's proving...

Ty Conklin officially clears waivers, will head down to Grand Rapids

I’m not sure what it says about a goaltender when, a week before the trade deadline, and when some teams’ goalies are having trouble stopping beach balls, you’re passed over when opposing teams could snag you for nothing more than a “Draper rule’s” worth of a few thousand bucks in legal fees while you’re on waivers, but the Red Wings breathed a sigh of relief when Ty...

Wings put Ty Conklin on waivers

DETROIT -- The Detroit Red Wings have put goaltender Ty Conklin on waivers. If Conklin isn't claimed by noon EST Tuesday, he will be assigned to the AHL's Grand Rapids Griffins. Joey MacDonald's emergence as a dependable backup made Conklin expendable because Jimmy Howard is healthy after being out with a broken right index finger. Detroit signed Conklin to a one-year...

Intent To Know: Conklin Waived - Joey Mac To Stay

If the Red Wings do waive Ty Conklin, he’ll be headed to a Griffins team that needs goaltending help

I’ve spent quite a bit of my health and legal-issue-related absence refining my skills as a professional worry-wart, but as the Detroit Red Wings’ management begins to hedge toward a decision which MLive’s Ansar Khan and Fox Sports Detroit’s Dana Wakiji hinted at, and the Windsor Star’s Bob Duff stated explicitly as a rumor bouncing around the press box like mad on Sunday...

Ty Conklin's job on the goal line

Jimmy Howards broken right index finger will be either the best or worst case scenario for Red Wing backup goalie Ty Conklin. Not that Conklin or anybody else for that matter wanted to see Howard get injured, but in pro sports it comes down to opportunity. If anybody needs an opportunity to prove themselves, its Ty Conklin. Since he backstopped the Wings to 3-0 victory at Colorado...

Red Wings-Avalanche game-day updates: Conklin faces fan scrutiny; Avs stack their blueline

As Pro Hockey Talk’s Mike Halford suggests ...
