Victoria, BC – The Victoria Shamrocks are excited to announce that forward Cory Conway will return to the team for the 2016 WLA season.

Throughout his WLA career, Conway has finished in the top five in league points five times, and finished runner up three times. Conway has a reputation as one of the elite playmakers in the WLA. He has led the league in assists in six WLA seasons, tallying 331 assists in 102 career games. Conway has had similar success in the postseason; recording 98 assists in 43 career postseason games.
Conway, 29, is a Victoria native and he played his junior career with the Jr. A Shamrocks. Conway has once been named a WLA 1st Team All-Star, and twice been named a 2nd Team All-Star.
“I’m very pleased to have Cory back in our lineup this year,” said Shamrocks general manager Chris Welch. “He is an elite player in this sport, in the prime of his career. As his stats clearly illustrate, he is a very dangerous offensive weapon who possesses an unbelievable shot and some of the most creative playmaking skills I’ve ever seen.”
