Lawson is a Crusader

Cameron Lawson (7) Commits to the Crusaders

Late last night I learned that Cameron Lawson committed to the College of the Holy Cross making him the fourth player with the Spruce Kings to secure a NCAA Division I scholarship. This is the goal of a vast majority of players in the BCHL and it is nice to see him get his just before Christmas.

The Spruce Kings have long prided themselves on the personal successes of their players and Cameron becomes the latest in an ever growing list of players to see their junior careers graduate to the collegiate level. The College of the Holy Cross is located in Massachusetts and offers 27 majors in the fields of science and mathematics, humanities, social science, and arts.

The Spruce Kings office put out a media release to announce the scholarship.


PRINCE GEORGE, BC – The Prince George Spruce Kings of the British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) are proud to announce the scholarship commitment of Cameron Lawson to the College of the Holy Cross and the Crusaders men’s hockey team. The College of the Holy Cross is a NCAA Division I school located in Worchester, Massachusetts.

Cameron Lawson, an off-season acquisition of the Prince George Spruce Kings, is a 19 year-old forward from Vancouver, BC. Currently sitting in the top three among the team leaders with twenty points, Lawson has scored twelve goals and eight assists so far this season.

"We are very happy for Cameron," said Spruce Kings General Manager, Mike Hawes. "He has been everything we had hoped for when we acquired him last summer. He's a good, hard working player, a tremendous young man, a great teammate and an excellent student who is very deserving of this scholarship."

"This is a great opportunity for me," said Cameron Lawson. "They showed interest in me very early on this season. I feel I will be getting lots of ice time and the opportunity to study in a very good school."

Lawson becomes the fourth Spruce Kings player this season with a NCAA Division I scholarship along with Coltyn Hansen, Jace Hennig and Kevin Guiltinan.
