The Calgary Roughnecks have traded forward Cory Conway and their sixth-round selection in the 2013 NLL Entry Draft to the Edmonton Rush in exchange for their third-round selection in the 2014 Entry Draft.
“Cory is a young player with NLL experience, he brings more depth on our right side,” said Rush general manager and head coach Derek Keenan. “With training camp upon us, players need to come to camp with the mindset to compete and earn jobs.”
Conway recorded 28 points (4+24) and 16 loose balls in 13 games with Calgary during the 2012 season.
“This move gives Cory an opportunity to attend a training camp with another team and, in return, we receive a draft selection which allows us to continue to build our team in the future,” said Roughnecks general manager Mike Board. “We feel we have a lot of talent offensively on our right side with Curtis Dickson, Shawn Evans and Scott Ranger, and we added to that depth with our draft selections, Joe Resetarits, Matthew Dinsdale and Jackson Decker. We would like to thank Cory for his contributions to the Roughnecks over the past two seasons."
