(LaSALLE, ON) – The LaSalle Vipers are pleased to announce that Cam Crowder will be joining Scott Lehman as assistant coach for the 2012-13 season.
The son of former Boston Bruins player and NHL Hockey Hall of Famer, Keith Crowder, Cam established himself as a player in his own right during his four years with the Essex 73’s. During that time, his team won two Clarence Schmalz Cups and three Great Lakes titles.
“I have known Cam for years,” says Vipers General Manager, Kevin McIntosh. “He brings a solid work ethic to our team. We are very proud to have Cam as part of our Vipers family.”
Cam has distinguished himself as a coach of several minor teams in the area, including Windsor AAA, Essex Bantam and the Alliance U17 development camp.
“Cam is a very mature, well spoken young man with ties to both local business and local hockey,” says Vipers Head Coach, Ryan Donally. “Since playing with the Essex 73’s, Cam has taken a very progressive approach in his desire to coach – like working on his high performance certification. Scott Lehman and I are very pleased to have Cam join us on the bench. This completes what I feel will be a very strong coaching staff.”
Cam is a graduate of the University of Windsor where he studied Business with a minor in labour studies.
