De Goey was drafted by Collingwood with the 5th overall selection of the 2014 national draft. As Collingwood's first pick, he was assigned the number 35 guernsey for his first season. [7] He made his debut in the opening round of the 2015 season against Brisbane Lions at The Gabba, being the 20th player to make their senior debut under the coaching of Nathan Buckley. [8] He received a Rising Star nomination in round 20 after collecting 18 disposals, 12 tackles and kicking a goal in a 21-point defeat against Sydney at the Sydney Cricket Ground. [9] At the beginning of the 2017 season, De Goey broke his hand during an incident in a bar in St Kilda. Initially, he lied to the club, telling them he injured it while playing with his dog, and after admitting to his lie was suspended for three matches, fined $5,000, and given 10 weeks of community service. [10] In the 2018 season, De Goey broke out and became a big time player, raising comparisons with Dustin Martin. [11] [12] He started the season suspended by Collingwood after being caught drunk driving, as well as being fined $10,000 and also donating another $10,000 to charity and working for a month as a tradesman and working with the Salvation Army. [13] Almost two months later, he returned via the Victorian Football League (VFL), collecting 24 disposals and kicking 4 goals against the Northern Blues. [14] [15] During the season, De Goey re-signed with Collingwood for another two years, turning down multi-year, multi-million contract offers from North Melbourne and from St Kilda. [16] In the preliminary final against Richmond, he kicked four goals, including the first one, and was named among the best players. [17] He also kicked three goals and was named among the best players in Collingwood's loss to West Coast in the Grand Final. [18] After the season he was selected by the AFL Players Association for the 22 Under 22 team [19] and won the Gordon Coventry Award as Collingwood's leading goalkicker after kicking 48 goals during the season. [15] [20]

Personal life

De Goey was educated at St Kevin's College in Toorak, Melbourne. [21] His father, Roger, was an under-19s player for Essendon and helped him toughen up his game. [22]
