Timmins Rock of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League has signed 2000 birth-year forward Cameron Chisholm. A local product, Chisholm tallied 13 goals, 16 assists, 29 points in 41 games for the Timmins Majors of the Great North Midget Hockey League in 2017-2018, regular season and playoffs included.
The 5-foot-10, 160-pound Chisholm has versatility that is apparent to Corey Beer, who is the head coach of the NOJHL Rock.
“He is the kind of guy who can come in and grind, play some heavier minutes, block shots and play on the (penalty kill),” Beer said of Chisholm.
“(Chisholm) also has the skill level to maybe be able to complement some of our skill players on a line and make some plays. I was very impressed with the season he had with the Majors,” Beer told the Timmins Daily Press.
“Obviously, the job that (Majors head coach) Brandon Perry and his staff did with Cameron and the rest of that team last year, paid off with a great season,” Beer said.
Beer also took note of Chisholm’s work ethic.
“Cameron is a guy who, stature wise, is not going to scare anyone with the type of frame he has, but he is fearless and relentless in the corners. He is a workhorse that way and that is something that is very appealing about his game.
“As a coaching staff, you can never have enough of those guys who work hard and are willing to pay the price,” Beer added.
