Greisen Cameron, who broke his back in an accident on a Humboldt Broncos bus two years ago, committed to playing NCAA hockey at Northland College in Wisconsin.
The 20-year-old from Olds, Alta, was captain of the Broncos last season. Northland College is an NCAA Division 3 school.
“I am proud to announce my commitment to @LumberJackHKY thanks to all my coaches, coaches, team partners, friends, @HumboldtBroncos and, most importantly, my whole family for helping me get back on the ice over the past year and a half and play. “The dream came true,” Cameron tweeted.
Sixteen people were killed and 13 injured when on April 6, 2018, a truck drove through a stop sign and crashed into the Humboldt Broncos bus.
In the same year, Cameron, who suffered a concussion and an eye injury, underwent surgery on his back.
He spent the season as an assistant coach to the optimistic red deer leader before returning to the Broncos.
The six-foot winger brought five goals and eight assists in 46 games in 2019-20.
Cameron played three playoff games before the COVID-19 pandemic closed the playoffs of the Saskatchewan Youth Hockey League.
“We are very pleased to announce that our captain Graysen Cameron has dedicated himself to Northland College,” Broncos told the team on Twitter.
“His dedication, work ethic and leadership are above all that you could ever ask for. We are honored to call Graysen Bronco, and we will always be happy. ”
