Buffalo acquires Conklin

February 27, 2007

Buffalo Sabres General Manager Darcy Regier announced today the team has acquired goaltender Ty Conklin from Columbus, in exchange for Buffalo's fifth-round selection in the 2007 Entry Draft. Regier also announced the Sabres have traded goaltender Martin Biron to Philadelphia in exchange for the Flyers' second-round selection in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

Conklin, 30, has an NHL record of 29-22-4 in 71 games with Columbus and Edmonton, along with a 2.60 GAA and .901 save percentage. Conklin was 2-3-2 with a 3.30 GAA in 11 games with Columbus this season, after signing with the Blue Jackets as a free agent on July 6, 2006. His most successful NHL season came in 2003-04 when he played 38 games with the Oilers, finishing with a record of 17-14-4 and 2.42 GAA.

The native of Anchorage, Alaska, was originally signed by Edmonton as an undrafted free agent on April 18, 2001, after a standout college career at New Hampshire. During his three-year career with the UNH Wildcats, Conklin was 57-23-12 with seven shutouts, a 2.17 GAA and .915 save percentage, establishing school records for GAA, wins, save percentage and games played. In the 2000-01 season Conklin was a Hobey Baker Award finalist, NCAA First Team All-American and Hockey East First Team All-Star.

Biron entered this season as the longest-tenured Sabres player after being drafted 16th overall in the 1995 Entry Draft. He has posted career numbers of 134-115-25-4, with a 2.53 GAA and .909 save percentage. So far this season he is 12-4-1, with a 3.04 GAA and .899 save percentage.
