ECHL: Jacksonville IceMen Add Critchlow to Roster

The Jacksonville Icemen have announced the signing of the title winning University of New Brunswick (UNB) captain, Cameron Critchlow to an ECHL contract.

The versatile left winger will join the Icemen for their inaugural season opener on Oct. 14 at the Jacksonville Veterans Memorial Arena.

Critchlow, 25, led UNB to two national titles (2013 & 2016), playing 109 games with 26 goals, 36 assists (62 points) and 153 penalty minutes.

Prior to that he played in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League for four seasons for the Acadie-Bathurst Titan, Lewiston MAINEiacs and Halifax Mooseheads.

“Cameron has enjoyed a successful Canadian college career for the powerhouse University of New Brunswick,” stated Icemen VP of Hockey Operations & Head Coach, Jason Christie. “He has not only been a major contributor to the University’s success on the ice, but has been a leader off the ice as well, serving as captain in the Juniors and University.”

The new Icemen player is remembered in Halifax for his infamous playoff series Game 7 performance where he scored four goals, leading the Mooseheads to victory from a three game deficit.

This summer Cameron is polishing his skills, preparing for his first pro season, by starring for the Adelaide Adrenaline down under in Australia.

“Cameron is a complete winger,” added Coach Christie. “He can play full strength, lead a power play and kill penalties. He drives to the net and has a great toughness about his game.”
