Medvescak announced new head coach who was a part of the Bears coaching staff in KHL last season.

Connor Cameron will lead Medvescak as head coach in their EBEL comeback. Now a 32-year old coach from Summerside was a part of Medvescak coaching staff last season where he led the club as a head coach in four games against Lokomotiv Yaroslav, Vityaz and two times against Slovan Bratislava.

Before that Cameron was an assistant coach throughout the whole season where he worked with head coach Gordie Dwyer. They were part of the same coaching staff in Charlottetown Islanders and their last job together was in Swiss team Ambri-Piotta at the end of last season.

„Connor is a great young coach who proved last year he is ready to take the next step in his career. We know what we are getting from him in regards to the work ethic and character he possesses and we also agree on the type of style we want to play to be successful.  We are really excited to have him back leading us to the EBEL“, Medvescak’s Sports Director Aaron Fox said.

Cameron ended his playing career in 2010 and dedicated himself to the coaching job. New coach is ninth name added to the roster after eight players signed for Medvescak or extended their contracts.
