On Friday November 6th, the Greenville Swamp Rabbits announced the signing of Canadian centreman Matthew Bradley. The two sides agreed to terms on a standard player contract for the upcoming season.

In 2013-14, he played 17 games, all of which were in the postseason. During the playoffs that year, the right-handed shooter didn’t get on the scoreboard.
During the 2017-18 season, Bradley’s journey continued with the Regina Pats. Being his final year of major junior, Bradley was named as an alternate captain. Taking a look at his statistics, the forward recorded 37 goals along with 42 assists which made for 79 points. This became a career high for the native of Vancouver.
In 2018, he joined the Newfoundland Growlers, recording 15 goals along with 30 assists. Doing so in 66 games, he amassed a total of 45 points. The team went on to have a strong postseason in 22 games before winning the championship.
Last year, he saw time with the Toronto Marlies in the American Hockey League, but couldn’t get on the scoreboard. This stint only lasted two games.
