Playing career

Benjamin started his career in the 2007-08 with the Swiss U20 team, which competes in National League B (NLB or Nationalliga B in Swiss German). After moderate showing in the NLB, he signed his first professional contract with Genève-Servette HC of National League A (NLA or Nationalliga B in Swiss German). He posted a 2.50 GAA in 21 games played with Servette. For the 2009-2010 season, he has moved to the SCL Tigers, also in the NLA, located in Langnau im Emmental. He is currently the ranked as the fifth best international goaltender by the NHL Central Scouting Bureau and will be entered into the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. TSN's hockey analysts Pierre Maguire and Gord Miller both compare Conz favourably to Conn Smythe winner and Stanley Cup champion Jean-Sébastien Giguère.[1]

International play

At the 2010 IIHF World U20 Championships, Conz led the Swiss team to impressive 4th place finish. He managed an upset of the Slovakians by stopping 39 shots in a 4-1 victory.[2] This victory advanced Switzerland to the knockout round to face the highly favoured Russian squad. Against the Russian, Conz had another impressive match where he made 50 saves on 52 shots, as the Swiss advanced 3-2.[3] Despite losing to the Canadians and Swedes and having a 4.76 GAA, he managed an 89.31% save percentage, an impressive feat due to the workload the overmatched Swiss allowed on Conz. These feats led to him being selected to the tournament all-star team.
