Tim Connolly is an American center on the Buffalo Sabres.
Connolly was drafted 5th overall in 1999 by the New York Islanders. He was traded to the Sabres in 2001, after recording 75 points in his first two seasons with the Isles. With the Sabres, Connolly suffered a number of concussions which limited his effectiveness. After the lockout, Connolly set a career high with 39 assists and 55 points. However, a concussion suffered during the playoffs kept him out of all but one game in the ’06-07 season. He seemed on pace to have a decent season in ’07-08, scoring 40 points in 48 games, but ended up having season-ending surgery on his hip.
