Adrenaline sign CIS and Canadian Junior Hockey Star

Adrenaline sign CIS and Canadian Junior Hockey Star

The Adelaide Adrenaline, proudly presented by Hards Transport, are pleased to announce that Canadian import forward Cameron Critchlow has committed to the Adrenaline for the 2017 season.
 
Critchlow is the captain of the University of New Brunswick (UNB) Varsity Reds, the most successful university hockey program in Canada.  He has captained the team to two of the past three national championships and is going for his third in four years this weekend.
 
Before starting his University career, Critchlow turned heads in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) with the Halifax Mooseheads, Lewiston MAINEiacs and Acadie-Bathurst Titans. He was captain of both Halifax and Lewiston.

He captained current NHL-stars Jonathan Drouin and Nathan Mackinnon while at Halifax. MacKinnon was a #1 draft pick in the NHL.
 
Critchlow says he plans on bringing some of those leadership qualities to the Adrenaline.
 
"I have had the privilege to captain the past 4 teams I have played for and it has been a great experience," he says. "I feel like honesty is a big part of being a captain. I try to come to the rink with a positive attitude and bring my best work ethic in games as well as practice."
 
Head coach Sami Mantere says he expects Cam to be the complete package for the Adrenaline.
 
"His skill level is as high as anyone in the league. He has led successful teams in the past," says Mantere. "The funny thing is we expect a lot from Cam but I think he expects even more from himself and that's the attitude we need. Everyone from the equipment manager to the coaches needs to expect more from themselves and I think he will do that."

Critchlow was a highly sought after import. He was talking to multiple teams but eventually decided on the Adrenaline.

He says having a familiar teammate in recently re-signed import Cole MacMillan helped with the process. Ultimately he decided on Adelaide because he thinks the Adrenaline can win.

"What appealed to me was the staff and their commitment to having a successful season. They were eager during the recruiting process and everyone has a strong passion for the game," he says.
 
Mantere says that Critchlow's desire to win is overwhelmingly obvious.

"Cam made it clear from first contact he is not coming here for a holiday. He wants to come over here and win and we had to convince him we have a team that can do that. Cam signed because we're on the same page and we believe he can be the guy to take us to the next level," says Mantere. 

Cole MacMillan, who comes from Prince Edward Island like Critchlow, played against the new recruit in QMJHL and the CIS. He says Adrenaline fans are going to love to watch him play.
 
"He's a hard working player with a lot of experience under his belt. He's a leader and knows how to win. He will be a fan favourite here in Adelaide and I look forward to playing alongside him instead of against him," he says. 

While Cam's stats may not scream "pure goal scorer" he does know how to bury his opportunities. In a famous playoff game while with the Halifax Mooseheads, Critchlow scored four goals in Game 7 for the Mooseheads to help them advance to the next round of the playoffs. During this series, Critchlow and the Mooseheads rallied from 3 games down to win 4 straight games over the Quebec Remperts to cap off one of the biggest QMJHL playoff series comebacks.

Cam says he thinks he can convert his style of play to a highly offensive game in Adelaide.
 
"I have a high energy style of play and I rely on my speed a lot to create offensive chances. I am reliable defensively and can play both power play and penalty kill, I am a pass first type player and like to find guys in tight for scoring opportunities," he says.
 
Critchlow and his UNB Varsity Reds compete in the U-Sports Varsity Cup beginning this weekend. The Adrenaline will provide Facebook streaming.
 
He will make his debut  for the Adrenaline in the home opener on April 22 vs. the Newcastle North Stars.
