Greenville, S.C. – The Greenville Swamp Rabbits, ECHL affiliate of the NHL's New York Rangers and the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack, announced that Bretton Cameron has re-signed for the 2017-18 season and will compete in his seventh campaign in Greenville. The Swamp Rabbits veteran will also be entering his eighth season in professional hockey after recording career-bests in goals and assists last season.
Cameron, 28, has captained the Swamp Rabbits each of the last three seasons and served as an alternate captain for the team in 2013-14. Greenville’s longest-tenured player produced the best numbers of his career last season, while also breaking some club records. His 64 games played, 44 points, 20 goals and 24 assists were all career highs and the highest totals by a Greenville captain in team history.
The versatile forward had more goals on special teams than any Swamp Rabbits skater, with six power-play goals and three shorthanded tallies. Cameron’s four game-winning goals tied him for second-most on the team last season.
On Dec. 13, 2016, Cameron became the team record holder by playing in his 263rd game for Greenville and ended the season with 304 games with the organization. In his tenure with Greenville, the Saskatoon, Saskatchewan native has collected 158 points (65g-93a). All three statistics rank fourth in team history.
Cameron has logged 391 games in the ECHL and 414 games professionally since making his pro debut on Oct. 29, 2010 with the Stockton Thunder. Cameron has earned 204 points (87g-117a) in the ECHL and added seven points (1g-6a) in the AHL with Hartford and the Texas Stars.
