Conor Casey To Be Shut Down For Final Two Games

Rapids forward Conor Casey's disappointing season has met its end.

This season was unquestionably the most disappointing of Conor Casey's career. The big guy clearly still has the talent that made him Colorado's leading all-time goal scorer, but after coming back from a torn Achilles tendon, the tank seemed empty most of the time.

According to Chris Bianchi, his season is going to finish the way it began -- off the roster. Casey is going to be shut down for the rest of the season, just as Matt Pickens was earlier.

Casey will finish the season with a disappointing two goals in eighteen appearances, a far cry from his return last year that saw him net six goals in six games before the Achilles injury sidelined him for a year. His status on the team will surely be a big part of the off season as the Rapids decide whether to keep or let go their $400,000 man for another season as he tries to recreate the dominance he showed from 2009-2011.

Expect to see a lot more Andre Akpan and Tony Cascio on the field for the final two games with Casey out as Oscar Pareja continues to juggle the young guys on the team to see who will stick for 2013.
