Cam Neely Biography

Cameron Michael Neely (born June 6, 1965) is a retired Canadian professional ice hockey player and actor. He played right wing for the Vancouver Canucks and Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League from 1983 to 1996 wearing the number 8. He currently serves as the president of the Boston Bruins.

Career

Neely played hockey with the Ridge Meadows Hockey Association for the majority of his minor career and has been named to the Maple Ridge honorable people list. He had a stellar season with the Portland Winter Hawks of the Western Hockey League in which he led the team to the Memorial Cup Championship, becoming the first US-based team to claim the Cup.

Neely was drafted by the Vancouver Canucks ninth overall in the 1983 entry draft and played three seasons with them.

Boston Bruins

Neely was traded along with a draft pick (1st choice, 3rd overall in the 1987 NHL Entry Draft, used to take Glen Wesley) to the Boston Bruins for Barry Pederson. Canucks head coach Tom Watt was not impressed with Neely's defense (Neely was 20 at this time), and that was what made him tradeable. Neely said "I was playing behind Stan Smyl and Tony Tanti, so I didn't see a lot of ice time, and, certainly not on the power plays.

Almost immediately, it became apparent that the Bruins had received the better of the deal. Neely stated that "I was surprised at the trade. I really didn't know what to expect once I got to Boston and had no idea that my career would turn out the way it did for those ten years. From Day One in training camp, I just wanted to get the opportunity to play. The coaches said, 'Let's see what he can do.' As time went by, I got more and more confidence. I never really thought I'd be a 50-goal scorer, but I was given a chance to contribute offensively, not just physically."In his first full season following the trade, Neely's 36 goals led the club, and his 72 points more than doubled his previous year's performance. In the same season, he also spent 143 minutes in the penalty box.

Post-NHL

In November 1998, Neely attempted a comeback after being out of hockey for two years. Neely said this in a 2008 interview about it.

Personal life

Cam Neely was born in Comox, British Columbia and grew up in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan.

Off the ice, Neely's personal family tragedies, with both his parents dying of cancer, have made him very aware of those whose circumstances are less fortunate than his own. Today, Neely remains active in the Cam Neely Foundation run in conjunction with the New England Medical Center, where patients and their families avail themselves of accommodation at the "Neely House" while undergoing cancer treatments.

Former World Wrestling Entertainment personality Justin LaRouche wrestled for the company's ECW brand under the moniker "Bam Neely", which is a take off Cam Neely's name as well as his nickname 'Bam-Bam Cam'.

Neely is married and has two children; son Jack, born in 1998, and daughter Ava, born in 2000.

Neely sits on the Board of Directors of Whistler Blackcomb Holdings Inc., which was created by an IPO by Intrawest Corp. on November 1, 2010. Within that Board, he is a Member of the Corporate Governance and Nominating Committee.
