Beyond the Games: Conor Riley

Albany Academy grad Conor Riley laces his skates now for the Adirondack Thunder.

What position he plays depends on the night.

A defenseman by trade, he has been called upon to play right wing -- and made the choice pay off by scoring a goal his first night on offense, a goal and assist the next day, and scored twice Tuesday, his first multi-goal game of the season.

He's come a long way from the preseason, when he was cut late in training camp.

Now it's safe to say Riley is here to stay.
