2008-09: Mark Cundari scored 32 points and 163 penalty minutes in 60 games with Windsor.
2009-10: Cundari had a career-year as part of the explose Windsor Spitfires. In 63 games, the blueliner scored 8 goals and added 46 assists for 54 points, good for third among defensemen behind Ryan Ellis and Cam Fowler. He also added 139 PIMs during the regular season. Cundari appeared in 19 games as Windsor capture their second consecutive Memorial Cup Championship and scored 3 goals, 15 assists for 18 points with 42 PIMs.
2010-11: Cundari skated in 69 of 80 games for the AHL Peoria Rivermen in his first pro season. Despite missing time with back spasms, he was the second-leading scorer amongst Peoria defensemen with 10 goals and 20 assists and was +6 with 106 PMs. Cundari appeared in three of four playoff games for Peoria as the Rivermen were swept by Houston and was -2 with 1 assist and 4 PMs.
2011-12: Cundari's second pro season with the Blues AHL affiliate Peoria was interrupted by a mid-season concussion. He was off to a fast start, scoring 1 goal with 8 assists in the Rivermen's first 18 games before suffering the injury in early December. He appeared in 48 games total for the Rivermen, scoring 3 goals with 12 assists and was minus-10 with 62 penalty minutes. Peoria missed the AHL playoffs after finishing fourth in the Midwest Division.
Cundari projects as a two-way defenseman. Despite his small frame, he is a strong player and is willing to play the physical game. He does not shy away from the corners. His positioning is excellent and rarely gets beat one-on-one. He flashed some offense in junior with the productive Spitfires as a puck-moving defenseman. His decision making with the puck is an area that could be improved.
Cundari will play his third season at the AHL level in Peoria and needs to have a better year as his NHL entry level contract ends this coming off-season. He needs to stay healthy and bring an improved two-way defensive game this year.
