Connolly's Rights Dealt to Tri City Americans.

The Prince George Cougars have traded Brett Connolly’s rights to the Tri City Americans. In return, the Prince George Cougars receive a fifth round draft pick in 2013, a conditional first round draft pick in 2013 and a conditional second round draft pick in 2014.

“When Brett Connolly made the Tampa Bay Lightning in October, we felt that he would be there for the full season and wouldn’t be coming back to us,” said Prince George Cougars General Manager Dallas Thompson. “If Brett Connolly does come back to the Western Hockey League this season – We’re happy with our return in this deal.”

Connolly was selected sixth overall by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. Connolly has played in 29 games with the Tampa Bay Lightning this season and has recorded four goals and eight points during his rookie season.
