Corey played three seasons (2007–10) of college ice hockey at Michigan State University with the Michigan State Spartans in the CCHA at the NCAA Division I level.
In 2009, his MSU career was marred by controversy when he and teammate Andrew Conboy brutally attacked Michigan Wolverines defenseman Steve Kampfer in an on-ice incident where Conboy appeared to check Kampfer from behind and Tropp appeared to slash Kampfer in the neck. Both players were suspended by Spartans head coach Rick Comley for the remainder of the season.
Corey was honored for his outstanding college play when he was named to the CCHA Second All-Star Team in his final year.
On September 22, 2013, during a pre-season game against the Toronto Maple Leafs, Corey fought and was knocked out by Maple Leafs' forward Jamie Devane, resulting in a broken jaw and a mild concussion.
On November 27, 2013, the Buffalo Sabres waived Corey and on November 28, 2013, he was claimed by the Columbus Blue Jackets.
On June 30, 2015, Corey (along with Artem Anisimov, Marko Dano and Jeremy Morin) was traded to the Chicago Blackhawks along with a 4th-round selection in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft in exchange for Brandon Saad, Alex Broadhurst and Michael Paliotta.
After attending the Blackhawks training camp, Corey was re-assigned to the Rockford IceHogs. Despite attending the IceHogs training camp, due to a overload of contract with the Blackhawks, he was re-assigned to the Albany Devils to begin the 2015–16 season.
Corey enjoyed a productive tenure with the Devils, scoring 28 points in 51 games before on February 29, 2016, he was traded by the Chicago Blackhawks to the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for Tim Jackman and a 7th round pick in 2017. He was directly re-assigned to the Ducks AHL affiliate, the San Diego Gulls.
