Former Mount Royal Cougar, Cam Maclise, was honoured this past weekend in Brooks, AB at the 2019 National Junior A Championship tournament. He became the fourth inductee to this group which includes two of his former linemates.
This quickly turned into a special weekend as the Brooks Bandits took home their second ever national title beating Prince George 4-3 in the finals. The last Bandits championship was with Maclise as team captain. He also took home the most valuable player award after defeating the host Summerside Western Capitals 3-1 in 2013.
When asked about Maclise's induction, Head Coach Bert Gilling said "Cam was the epitome of a high performing student athlete. He was driven, humble and hard working and had very clear goals for himself academically and athletically. He embodied the values of Cougar Hockey and led by his actions. He was highly respected by everyone at MRU who crossed paths with him. Those that know him are not surprised with his inductionto the Wall of Fame in Brooks."
Maclise played for two years at MRU and averaged a point-a-game with 27 goals and 29 assists in 56 total games. After his time with the Cougars, he went on to start his professional career with the Colorado Eagles, Manitoba Moose and Jacksonville IceMen.
