ELMIRA, N.Y. - January 22, 2014 - The Elmira Jackals announced today that goaltender Neil Conway has signed with the club and Maxime Clermont has been placed on the 21-day IR.
Neil Conway split his first pro season last year with the Rapid City Rush and the Quad City Mallards of the Central Hockey League.

Conway, 26, is a second-year pro from Concord, Ohio. The 6-foot-1, 185-pound goalie comes to Elmira after starting the season in the Elite Ice Hockey League based in the United Kingdom. This season he has posted a 13-11-0 record with a 3.17 goals-against-average and a .894 save percentage in 25 games for the Nottingham Panthers. Last season Conway split his first pro season with the Rapid City Rush and the Quad City Mallards of the Central Hockey League. In eight games with Rapid City Conway posted a 1-2-2 record with a 2.82 goals-against-average and a .911 save percentage. Conway signed with Quad City on December 18 and finished the season with the Mallards. He posted a 15-8-0 record with a 2.65 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage in 24 games.  

 

Prior to turning pro, Conway appeared in 60 games over three season for St. Mary's University (AUS), and 98 Ontario Hockey League games over five years with time split between Owen Sound and Oshawa. He went 41-31-12 combined for the Attack and Generals.  At St. Mary's University Conway compiled a 36-20-0 record with a 2.38 goals-against-average and a .906 save percentage, and helped lead the Huskies to the 2010 University Cup Championship.
