Despite heading into only his first season in Belfast and the EIHL, 26-year-old Scott Conway is no stranger to Belfast, The SSE Arena, the UK, his Giants teammates, or indeed his new Head Coach Adam Keefe.
The Basingstoke-born Centreman who moved to Canada as a boy is the son of British Hockey Hall of Famer Kevin Conway; the nephew of former Guildford Flames star Fred Perlini; and the cousin of former Nottingham Panther Brett and his NHL-winger brother Brendan Perlini.
He featured alongside fellow new Giant Jeff Baum in Providence’s 2017 Friendship Four campaign; played one year at Penn State alongside David Goodwin; and, most recently, featured for the ECHL’s Allen Americans in 2020-21, where he amassed 20 points (12 goals, 8 assists) playing alongside another new Giants signing in Sam Ruopp.
Furthermore, Conway cites his experience of playing under Giants head coach Adam Keefe in the Team GB set up as a large part of the reason he decided to make the move to Belfast. He finished GB’s 2020 campaign as joint top scorer alongside Dallas Erhardt.
With the sheer number of ties to the Belfast Giants, Conway’s arrival seems almost inevitable.
With a CV boasting 13 AHL games and 84 ECHL games, he will take to the ice in front of the Teal Army with his sights set on securing his second career Championship; having clinched the USHL’s Clark Cup in 2013-14 with the Indiana Ice.
