Powell River Kings’ winger makes college commitment

Next stop for Cam Symons is Oswego State University in New York State
Powell River Kings’ forward Cameron Symons skates away from Tyler Wishart of the Nanaimo Clippers during a BC Hockey League game at Frank Crane Arena on March 10. Symons made the most of his one season in the BC Hockey League, using the 2022/2023 campaign to garner interest from an NCAA school.

For the second consecutive day, Powell River Kings have announced a player’s commitment to an NCAA Division III school.

Cam Symons will join Oswego State University (New York State) next season. He made his Junior A debut this past year with the Kings after spending the first portion of his junior career playing Junior B and C in Ontario.

The 20-year-old made the most of his one and only opportunity in the BC Hockey League, becoming an offensive and physical force on the ice.

“Cam is a gamer and what an addition he was to our team,” said Kings’ coach Brock Sawyer. “He played very fast and heavy and was a man against boys most nights.”

Symons appeared in all 54 regular season games in the 2022/2023 season, scoring 16 goals and adding 26 assists, including a hat-trick in his final regular season game. He also recorded three assists in five playoff games versus Surrey Eagles.

“In talking with Oswego State assistant coach Jonny Whitelaw, who I know quite well, they are ecstatic to have him there and they can’t wait to see what he can do,” added Sawyer. “He’s a great young man who contributed to the community and we are very happy that he’s going to a great spot in Oswego State.”

The Kings would like to thank Cam for everything he did with the team and wish him all the best at Oswego State.

Symons’ teammate Sam Schoenfeld committed to the Milwaukee School of Engineering on May 18.
