Oilers’ Conklin set for stint in Hamilton

The Edmonton Oilers announced today that goaltender Ty Conklin has been assigned to the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs for conditioning purposes. Conklin, 29, has appeared in four games for Edmonton this season, earning one win and one loss, with a 4.39 goals-against average, and a .836 save percentage.

The native of Anchorage, Alaska, played in 75 games for the Bulldogs between 2001-03, compiling a record of 32-25-11 with five shutouts, a 2.58 goals-against average and a .915 save percentage. In 2003, Conklin backstopped the Bulldogs to the Calder Cup Finals, where they were defeated by the Houston Aeros in seven games. In the memorable Game 2 of that series, Conklin made 83 saves in a 2-1 quadruple-overtime victory.

In 47 career NHL games, Conklin has posted 20 wins, 15 losses, and four ties, with a 2.50 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage.
