Former Caledonia Corvair, Sarnia’s Corey Pawley, has signed a pro contract to play hockey in Sweden.
Pawley will play for Brunflo IK, in the Norra group of Division One, the third tier of professional ice hockey in Sweden.
The move follows a Sutherland Cup Championship season with the Caledonia Corvairs.
A graduate of the Lambton Jr. Sting AAA program, Pawley scored 23 goals and 50 points in 42 games as a 16-year-old rookie. Lambton Shores acquired Pawley in an early season trade with the London Nationals.
Pawley was given a chance with the Knights to start the 2012 to 2013 campaign, but had a hard time finding ice time on a very deep London team. He was traded to Kingston in August on 2013, where he would go on to record 70 points throughout two seasons with the Frontenacs.
Last season, he was a big part of the Caledonia Pro-Fit Corvairs’ third straight Sutherland Cup recording 30 goals and 80 assists for 111 points. At the same time, he is not afraid to get physical when required, racking up 100 minutes in penalties. In 20 playoff games he scored 18 goals, assisted on 40 for 58 points.
