Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Connie Forey
Left-winger Connie Forey played four games with the St. Louis Blues in the early 1970s. He was a solid checker who could play the body and create problems in the opposition's zone.

Born in Montreal, Forey played two years with the Ottawa 67's of the OHA. After registering 24 goals in 1969-70 he was chosen 49th overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the NHL Amateur Draft. During his first three pro seasons, Forey played in the CHL, IHL, and AHL. He was claimed by the New York Islanders in the Inter-League Draft in 1972 but never suited up for the expansion team.

In August 1973 he was traded to the St. Louis Blues for cash and played four games that season. He scored 26 points in 49 games for the WHL's Denver Spurs before he was suspended in February for assaulting referee Malcolm Ashford. His ban lasted for the remainder of the 1973-74 season and all of 1974-75. He retired after catching on with the NAHL's Mohawk Valley Comets for six games in 1974-75.
