Playing career

Conroy was drafted 123rd overall in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft by the Montreal Canadiens after a solid four year career at Clarkson University of the NCAA. He was traded to the St. Louis Blues in 1996, where he finished four seasons without having a negative plus/minus rating, and was traded to the Calgary Flames for Cory Stillman in 2001. He was captain of the Flames until the beginning of the 2003–04 NHL season, when he gave up the captaincy to Jarome Iginla, whereupon he became an assistant captain. The Flames made it all the way to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals that season before bowing out to the Tampa Bay Lightning. He scored the only goal for the Flames in Game 7. Craig also finished fifth in playoff scoring with 17 points (6 G, 11 A) in 26 games.

In July 2004, he signed as a free agent with the Los Angeles Kings. After disappointment at not making the American team for the 2002 Olympics, he was named to Team USA for the 2006 Winter Olympics. He was also a member of Team USA for the 2004 World Cup of Hockey.

On January 29, 2007, Conroy was traded back to the Calgary Flames by the Kings for Jamie Lundmark, a fourth-round draft choice in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft and a second-round draft choice in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. On the following day, Conroy played his first game in three years with the Flames. The game was against his former team; the Kings. Conroy scored two goals and an assist. He was named the game's second star.

On January 3, 2009, Conroy potted his 500th point in his NHL career, with an assist on Todd Bertuzzi's game-winning goal against Dan Ellis of the Nashville Predators with 23.4 seconds left in the third period, the Flames would win 3-2 final.
