Conacher had 20 goals and 43 assists in 55 games during the 2017-18 season.
“I’m glad to be able to return to Glens Falls,” Conacher said in a release. “I think it’s the best place to play in the ECHL. Alex (Loh, head coach) has put together a team that I think can bring home the Kelly Cup. He is a hockey genius, and with Pete Dineen’s experience and passion for the game, it makes for a really solid combo behind the bench. The community in Glens Falls is one of a kind and the fans make it such a fun place to play.”
