Conor Allen (born January 31, 1990), is an American ice hockey defenseman. He is currently playing with the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit]

Prior to his enrollment at UMass Amherst, Allen played his junior hockey with the Sioux Falls Stampede of the United States Hockey League (USHL).[1] He played NCAA Division I hockey with UMass Amherst in the Hockey East conference. Allen was signed to a two-year entry level contract as an undrafted free agent by the New York Rangers in March 2013, and was assigned to the club's AHL affiliate, the Connecticut Whale.[1]

On December 28, 2013, Allen was called up for the first time from Hartford to the Rangers,[2] and played his first NHL game on December 29, 2013, logging 16 minutes against the Tampa Bay Lightning, in a game the Rangers won 4 - 3.[3] After the game, the Ranger's Coach Vigneault noted that Allen was “poised with the puck, wasn't afraid to take a hit to make a play, and that's why he got that ice time.”[4] Within a week, Allen played his second and third NHL games with the Rangers—December 31 against the Florida Panthers [5] and January 3, 2014 against the Pittsburgh Penguins.[6]

Allen is a graduate of The Latin School of Chicago.
