April 2017 – Ingram’s Kamloops Blazers were eliminated from the WHL playoffs this week by the Kelowna Rockets despite a grand effort from the prospect net-minder. Prior to the beginning of WHL playoffs, Ingram had been named a WHL Western Conference second-team all-star for the second year in a row. Rather than returning to Saskatchewan, Ingram will now join the Lightning’s AHL affiliate, Syracuse Crunch on an amateur tryout to round out the season. There he will get acquainted with veteran AHLer Mike McKenna, who Yzerman plans will share the crease with the youngster into next year. Brayden Olafson


January 2017 – After consistent performances over the past two and a half seasons in the WHL, Connor Ingram had an uncharacteristic tough run at the 2017 World Junior Championship for Team Canada. Both of Canada's goaltenders looked shaky from the start of the tournament, but it was Ingram who earned the starters job midway through. Ingram played good enough to win but let in many goals that he would have wanted back – many attributed to poor rebound control. While his overall numbers weren't bad (2.57 GAA & 0.833 SVS%), the game that will stick out in most people's minds is the semi-finals against Sweden when he allowed two goals on three shots. Ingram has been good in the playoffs in the past for Kamloops but appeared to lose confidence as the tournament progressed. Ingram is good at a lot of things, but doesn't necessarily excel in one area. He's strong down low with great lateral movement but he'll need to work on his overall conditioning. In the WHL, Ingram finds ways to win. The Tampa Bay brass will keep a close eye on his response returning from the World Juniors as he gears up for a big playoff run with a good Kamloops Blazers team. The verdict is still out on Ingram, but as it stands, I see his ceiling as a backup goaltender in the NHL. Kathryn Jean


June 2016 – The Tampa Bay Lightning took Ingram in the third round in 2016 and they received a rather small and slim goaltender. He can move well in the crease and find the shooting lanes well to get to the puck as fast as possible. His long legs can cover the posts from the splits. Comfortable pick at 88. Put up great numbers for a rather poor defensive team in Kamloops. Max Marko



Fantasy Outlook: C

Could possibly become a better goaltender by increasing size and strength. Very athletic, however, and can move well.
