And here’s the Wiki bio:
Born in Trenton, Michigan, Condra played junior for the Texarkana Bandits of the NAHL in 2003–04 and the Lincoln Stars of the USHL in 2004–05. In 2005, he moved on to University of Notre Dame to play for the Fighting Irish. His first year play placed him on the All-Rookie team of the CCHA. His play attracted the attention of the Ottawa Senators and they selected him in the seventh round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft. He played four seasons for Notre Dame and led the team in scoring in each of his four seasons, scoring 48 goals while adding 110 assists for 158 points in 159 career games. He served as the team’s captain in his senior year.
Condra made his professional debut in 2009 with Ottawa’s American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Binghamton Senators. After one and a half seasons with Binghamton, Condra was called up to make his NHL debut in 2011. He played his first game in Ottawa, on February 15, 2011 against the New York Islanders. He scored his first and second NHL career goals on February 26, 2011 against the Philadelphia Flyers. Less than two weeks later, Condra tallied twice against Martin Brodeur of the New Jersey Devils.
