Maroons Bring Back Veteran Cameron Welch
The Chatham Maroons have brought back a familiar face in veteran forward Cameron Welch.
Welch comes to the Maroons from the Komoka Kings.
“Cam is a big, strong centre that has shown he is one of the top players in our league,” said Chatham coach and GM Tyler Roeszler. “He is from Chatham-Kent and there is nothing like playing in your hometown. We are excited to have him join our organization.”
“His skating ability, skill level, and the way he competes allows him to be dangerous offensively. He takes care of both ends of the ice, wins face-offs, and he wants to win above all else.”
Last season, Welch had 18 goals and 40 points for the Komoka Kings, while serving as an assistant captain for the team.
Roeszler is expecting Welch to bring that same leadership to the Maroons.
“Cam leads by how hard he plays the game. We have already seen in the two practices he’s been with us, that he raises the level of all the players around him.”
Welch played his minor hockey with the Windsor Jr. Spitfires and Chatham-Kent Cyclones.
He started the 2018-2019 season with the Chatham Maroons, and AP’d the season prior, before Chatham traded Welch to Komoka.
