Playing career

Cameron played university hockey with the University of Prince Edward Island from 1976 to 1979, during which he recorded 27 goals and 62 assists (89 points) in 49 games with the Panthers ice hockey team. He was drafted by the New York Islanders in the eighth round of the 1978 NHL Entry Draft.

After completing his university career, Cameron split the 1979–80 season between the Fort Wayne Komets of the International Hockey League and the Indianapolis Checkers of the Central Hockey League (CHL). In six games with the Komets, Cameron had three goals and six assists (nine points), and in 70 games with the Checkers, Cameron had 15 goals and 21 assists (36 points).

Cameron returned to the Checkers for the 1980–81 season, where he had a breakout season, scoring 40 goals and 30 assists (70 points) in 78 games, along with 156 penalty minutes. In five playoff games, Cameron had two goals and three assists. On October 1, 1981, the Islanders traded Cameron and Bob Lorimer to the Colorado Rockies in exchange for the Rockies' first-round draft pick in the 1983 NHL Entry Draft, which the Islanders used to select future Hockey Hall of Famer Pat LaFontaine.

Toronto St. Michael's Majors (2000–2004)

Cameron returned to the OHL in 2000 as head coach of the Toronto St. Michael's Majors. In his first season with the team in 2000–01, the Majors improved by 38 points, as they went 35–23–8–2 and made the playoffs for the first time since the rebirth of the team in 1997. St. Michael's defeated the Peterborough Petes in seven games in the first round, followed by another thrilling seven-game series win in the second round against the Sudbury Wolves. The Majors then fell in four-straight against the Ottawa 67's in the Eastern Conference Finals.

St. Michael's continued to improve in 2001–02, as the team finished with a 40–19–8–1 record to earn an Eastern Conference best 89 points. The Majors quickly swept the North Bay Centennials in the first round, then defeated the Ottawa 67's in the second round in seven games.

In the first round of the 2005 Calder Cup playoffs, the Senators were upset by the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins in six games.

With many Binghamton players promoted to the NHL's Ottawa Senators for the 2005–06 season following the end of the 2004–05 NHL lockout, the club struggled and finished with a 35–37–4–4 record, missing the playoffs by finishing in fifth place in the East Division, seven points behind the Bridgeport Sound Tigers.

Binghamton's struggles continued in 2006–07, finishing with the worst record in the AHL at 23–48–4–5 (55 points), well out of a playoff position. It also stood as the worst record in franchise history, with fans in Binghamton regularly chanting for Cameron's firing during home games throughout the season.

Mississauga St. Michael's Majors (2007–2011)

After a three-year stint with Binghamton, Cameron returned to the Majors organization, which during the summer of 2007 had relocated from Toronto to Mississauga to become the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors.
