Convery was a speedy junior star out of Sudbury who became a top NHL prospect. As a teenager he was living the hockey dream, but stardom did not follow. After a dozen seasons as a pro only played sporadically in the NHL, totalling 72 games with Toronto, Vancouver and LA. He is still considered by many in Toronto to be a draft bust. He represented Canada in 1995 World Championship.

Knee and shoulder injuries decimated his career, which he extended by playing in Europe through 2004. He had to retire due to concussions.

Missed 1999-2000 season due to knee injury.

In 2010 Convery contracted a virus (Viral Myocarditis) that almost killed him. He was forced into an induced coma so his body would rest. He had to learn to walk and breathe again. He went to cardiac rehab for the next four months and endured a long road to recovery. Convery now shares his stories both on the ice and in life as a motivational and high performance coach for young athletes and their parents.
