Hometown: Woodbridge, ON

Undrafted, signed by St. Louis in 2008



June 2016 – Mark Cundari signed a two-way contract with the San Jose Sharks on July 2, 2015, and played 34 games for the San Jose Barracuda recording only three goals and five assists. He was loaned to the Lake Erie Monsters in March and posted six points in seven games before suffering a season-ending injury.
As an unrestricted free agent, Cundari signed with the Augsburger Panther of the German Elite League for the 2016-17 season, reuniting with former teammates Brady Lamb and Ben Hanowski from Cundari's days in the Calgary Flames organization. It is the first foray into Europe for the diminutive two-way defender. Zachary Devine

October 2014 – Cundari was placed on waivers and assigned to the Adirondack Flames of the AHL. Brad Wilson


May 2013 – Mark Cundari is now in the Calgary Flame’s system after being dealt to them (along with goalie Reto Berra and a first round pick) from the St. Louis Blues for Jay Bouwmeester. Possibly due to his small stature, Cundari was not drafted and was instead signed by the Blues after attending both their development camp and training camp in 2008. He returned to the Windsor Spitfires of the OHL for two more seasons, winning both the OHL championship and the Memorial Cup each year.

While he is small for an NHL defenceman, Cundari is not shy about contact, averaging 138 penalty minutes and 62 games per season in his OHL career. He also has a solid skill set, as he displayed in the  2009-10 season in Windsor, putting up 8 goals and 54 points in 63 games. He was the ninth highest scoring defenseman in the OHL that year, and had the best plus/minus in the league (+45), playing on a loaded Spitfire team that included Taylor Hall, Adam Henrique, Ryan Ellis and Cam Fowler.

Cundari is a solid two way defenseman that plays a consistent positional game and occasionally contributes offensively. He is also versatile, playing forward at times for Peoria, the St. Louis Blues’ farm team. He enjoyed a sensational debut in his first game in Calgary, scoring a goal and an assist, and ended up with 3 points in his 4 games with the Flames. Sheldon Curtis



Fantasy Outlook: D-

Cundari will have no fantasy impact in 2016-17 and likely beyond.
