Tim Connolly (born May 7, 1981 in Baldwinsville, New York) is an American professional player currently playing for the Buffalo Sabres of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career

Connolly played for the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) prior to 1999. In the 1999 NHL Entry Draft, he was drafted by the New York Islanders, fifth overall.

On June 24th, 2001, at the NHL Entry Draft, Connolly and Taylor Pyatt were traded by the New York Islanders to the Buffalo Sabres for captain Michael Peca. Connolly missed the entire 2003–04 season with post-concussion syndrome after suffering a concussion in a pre-season game versus Chicago. During the 2004–05 NHL lockout, he played the second half of the season with Lugano SC in the Swiss League.

In 2005–06, Tim had a career high 55 points in 63 regular season games. In the 2005–06 playoffs, he recorded 11 points in 8 playoff games including the game-tying goal with 10.7 seconds left in Game 1 of the second round series against the Ottawa Senators (which Buffalo won 7–6 in overtime). In game 2, however, Connolly was injured with a concussion and missed the rest of the playoffs. At this point in his career, he had become one of the best puck handlers in the NHL. However, he had been criticized for playing with his head down, and many link that to his concussion problems.

Though Connolly missed only 3 regular season games total in his first 4 seasons in the league, he has since been plagued by injuries. He missed the entire 2003-2004 season with concussion issues, missed a significant portion of the 2005-06 season, 80 games of the 2006-07 season, 34 games in 2007-08, and has already sat out for a handful of games during the 2008-09 season, due to various ailments.

Connolly missed 80 games of the 2006–07 season due to post-concussion symptoms from another concussion he suffered during the 2006 playoffs. He returned to action on April 7, 2007, against the Washington Capitals, recording 13 minutes of ice time and scoring a goal; he was named second star for the game, which the Sabres won, 2–0.

Connolly had bone spur problems with his hip all throughout the 2007–08 season and had season-ending surgery to have them removed on March 21, 2008.

The 2008–09 season season has seen the continuation of Connolly's injury problems. Tim began the season with two cracked vertebrae from a stick-butt to the back in a pre-season game, which forced him to miss the first 10 games of the regular season. After five games, in which he registered six points, he suffered a broken rib from a devastating hit by the St. Louis Blues' Keith Tkachuk. Despite playing through the pain in the next game, the injury subsequently pulled Connolly out of the lineup once again.

On January 9, 2009, Connolly returned to the lineup, and has had an immediate positive impact on the Sabres' recent success, adding to the team's scoring punch on the power play at at even strength.

Despite being a magnet for injuries, Connolly received a deal from the Buffalo Sabres worth $4.5 million in each of the next two seasons on March 4, 2009.
