He had left SC Bern to pursue his career with the Tampa Bay Lightning last summer. Now, after eleven games on NHL level and 78 appearances with AHL's Syracuse Crunch, Conacher will hit free agency come July 1.

"If it's not working out here with any type of contract, then the first look will be going back to Switzerland, for sure,'' Conacher tells syracuse.com. "We'll see. This is a weird year just because of the expansion draft. I don't know what Tampa's plan is, how many guys they're going to bring back, or if they're going to make any trades."

Conacher was initially inked to a one-year, one-way contract by the Lightning last summer. Prior to the 2016-17 NHL season opener, however, both Vermin and Conacher were put on waivers and sent to the Lightning's AHL affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch, afterwards.

"I expressed to them that I want to play in the NHL. If their plan is to bring me back to play in Syracuse, as much as I had a great time down here, the fans were awesome, I'm 27, almost 28. I want to get one more shot in the NHL. And I think I have the ability to play there," Conacher adds.

In those eleven games with the Tampa Bay Lightning this term, the Canadian forward managed to put up four points (one goal, three assists). For AHL's Syracuse Crunch, he was able to contribute 29 goals and 59 assists in a total of 78 games.
