College Hockey:
Out of St. Cloud, Conboy Lands in San Jose

Former St. Cloud State defenseman Tim Conboy signed a two-year contract with the San Jose Sharks Thursday, according to the St. Cloud Times.

Conboy, a sophomore, had been cut by St. Cloud earlier this month because of an unspecified team rules violation.

San Jose assigned Conboy to its American Hockey League team in Cleveland. He’ll stay with the Barons throughout the playoffs, according to the Times.

Conboy told the Times, “I’m ecstatic. I was in an awful bargaining position, but this [negotiation] was always going on behind the scenes. I owe a lot to [agent] Ben Hankinson.”

San Jose drafted Conboy in the seventh round two years ago.

Conboy scored 25 points in 64 games for St. Cloud. The Times noted that his 130 penalty minutes put him on track to set a record for defensemen at the school, had he played all four years.
