Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Connor James
Connor James was born August 25, 1982 in Calgary, Alberta. The ninth round, 279th overall selection of the Los Angeles Kings in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, James is a graduate of the University of Denver.

A diminutive, yet offensively gifted forward, James played four seasons at the University of Denver registering 150 points (57-93-150) before making his professional debut in 2004-05. Following a successful collegiate career, James went on to split his first season as a pro between the ECHL's Bakersfield Condors and the AHLs Manchester Monarchs.

James continued to hone his skills in Manchester for the better part of the 2005-06 season, yet his strong play earned him some playing time with the parent club in L.A.

Following his short stint with the Kings, James signed as a free agent with the Pittsburgh Penguins in the summer of 2006.
