Playing career

Locke was drafted 113th overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft by the Montreal Canadiens. He began his hockey career with the Ottawa 67's of the OHL. During his time in the OHL, he won the Red Tilson Trophy as the league's most outstanding player two years in a row. In 2003, his 151 points were the most in the CHL. Corey maintains a residence in Newmarket, Ontario. His younger brother, Kyle, plays for the Newmarket Hurricanes of the Ontario Junior A Hockey League. During the 2002–2003 season Corey Locke and Matt Foy formed the most dangerous and dominant tandem in Ontario major junior hockey. Corey won the Calder Cup with the Hamilton Bulldogs in the 2006–07 AHL season. Being a player who is relatively small in stature he has been an inspiration to many small young hockey players across Canada, particularly in the Hamilton area due to his time with the Hamilton Bulldogs.

In the 2007–08 season Locke made his NHL debut, playing 1 game with the Montreal Canadiens. On July 11, 2008 Locke was traded to the Minnesota Wild for Shawn Belle.

On July 3rd 2009, as an unrestricted free agent, he signed a deal with the New York Rangers
