Conway eyes up the world
Britain's new star, Scott Conway, would love to participate in the world championships later this year – but admits that other engagements could keep him from participating.
Conway is back with ECHL Atlanta Gladiators, a subsidiary of the Providence Bruins in the AHL after his week in Nottingham, trying to help GB in their winter Olympic qualifying campaign .
And the 24-year-old, who was born in Basingstoke, had a great time with Pete Russell and his team despite the outings after losing the last game against Hungary on Sunday.
"I had a blast," he said. "It was so much fun playing with a large group of guys and the team was good too. It was definitely a plus and I can't wait to wait to be involved again, if given the chance.
“It was also very special to be on the team with my cousin, Brett (Perlini) too and to share it with your family members is quite unique, so it's ; was great to be on the same team and even on the same line.
"There were great memories created and wonderful experiences and it was a great weekend from my point of view.
"Unfortunately, we have failed against Hungary, but we will grow as a team. The future is certainly hopeful for Great Britain and I'm delighted to see what will come out of it. "
"I would be really happy to play for GB at the World Championships this year, but it depends on the situation in Boston, with Providence and where we are in the play-offs.
"I would love to take this route for sure and have the chance to test myself against the best of the best in the world and I will have fun doing it if I am there."
Conway was the top common scorer for GB, picking up three points with Dallas Ehrhardt and even winning the GB Supporters Club tournament player, beating Perlini for the price.
say he impressed all three games, which saw the British beat Romania and Estonia before the decisive defeat against the Hungarians which ended their hopes of advancing to the final qualifier in August .
Scott admits that he would like to play in the UK at a later stage in his career, explaining how he got involved with Pete Russell's team.
He added: "Last year I could not play for GB due to playing for my university team and I approached and told them that I would be eligible to play this year and more than interested in participating. The coach answered me and I quickly found myself on board.
"I played in the UK for 12 years and my father trained as I grew up and learned a lot there, but due to the advancement of my career we moved to Canada at the age of 12 and it really started from there.
"I would love to come back to play in the UK at some point in my career. I've always been in my back pocket to come back, but I'm in no rush and we see where my career takes me.
"I have family and relatives and playing in the UK is definitely on my radar for sure."
