Cyclones acquire Conway from Toledo


CINCINNATI, Ohio – The Cincinnati Cyclones have acquired goaltender Neil Conway from the Toledo Walleye in exchange for future considerations.

The Cyclones are the ECHL affiliate of the National Hockey League’s Nashville Predators and the American Hockey League’s Milwaukee Admirals.

Entering his third ECHL campaign, Conway primarily served as a backup in Toledo, appearing in 20 games a season ago. The Concord, Ohio native compiled an 11-7-3 record in those contests, and posted a 2.09 goals-against average along with a .928 save percentage. Conway backstopped the Walleye to three shutouts last season, which is second most in team history for a single season. He continued his hot play in the playoffs, helping Toledo to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals with a 4-2 record, along with a 3.21 goals-against average and a .905 save percentage in six games.

Conway has also seen time with the Elmira Jackals and England’s Nottingham Panthers in 2013-14, and the Central Hockey League’s Rapid City Rush and Quad City Mallards in 2012-13.
