There's not really that much out there about Cameron, from what I see. At least about his playing days.
I was able to find, however, that he is one of the eight players that shares the franchise record for points in one period
(4) when he achieved that feat against the Quebec Nordiques on February 12, 1982.
After finishing the 84-85 season with the Moncton Golden Eagles (I'm guessing that was Calgary's farm team at the
time, but I have no info about a trade to the Flames.), he went on to play in the New Brunswick Seniors League for
2 seasons. He would play for parts of 2 seasons later on in the decade before calling it a career.
In between, he earned his bachelor's degree from PEI University in business administration, and later got his Master's
from the U. of New Brunswick in education.
He also took to coaching, having done so in both juniors and lower minor leagues. He graduated to the AHL ranks
taking a job with the St. John's Maple Leafs in 1999 for a season. He would join the Binghamton Senators for three
seasons, as well. In time, he became an assistant on the Ottawa Senators' staff, and ultimately the headman for a season
and a half.
Currently, he is an assistant for the Calgary Flames.
