Cam was a key member of the top ranked Okanagan Rockets leadership group this season on his way to becoming the BC Hockey Leagues U18AAA Player of the Year.
Cam finished the season with 10 goals and 37 assists, tying Zack Feaver of the Fraser Valley Thunderbirds for most assists across the league.
“This was the most fun year of hockey I’ve ever had,” said Cam. “Our team was awesome; it was a really good group of guys. I played with two defense partners and they were amazing and really helped me out a lot and our forwards played great.”
The dominant defensemen was key to the Rockets success, persevering through the highs and the lows of the season alongside his teammates.
“We really rallied together and started playing for each other,” added Cam. “So many players could have won this award.”
Cam has the game in his blood, with his dad Sandy playing in over 236 NHL games over his 15 year professional career.
"My dad played pro in Germany when I was little so I grew up playing hockey,” said Cam. “He was my coach so it made me practice a little harder.”
With his passion for the game in tiw, Cam will continue his hockey career with the Trail Smoke Eaters of the BC Hockey League (BCHL) next season.
"I want to get better everyday, that’s how much I love hockey," he added. "It makes me get better in all aspects of my life. You sacrifice so much time and put in so much effort and eventually it pays off."
