The 19-year-old, who played for the Mournemen during the 2011 Championship campaign, received his call-up after impressing in a reserve game, in which he scored five goals.
The former St Colman's Newry pupil was introduced early in the final period and acquitted himself well, narrowly missing out on a debut goal and setting up two others.
Collingwood won the game by 107 - 78.
