Gladiators Sign Dustin Cameron and Dallas Jackson
The Gwinnett Gladiators have signed forward Dustin Cameron and defenseman Dallas Jackson for the 2011-2012 season.
Cameron returns to the Gladiators after he earned 19 points (nine goals, 10 assists) in 25 games last season with the Gladiators. He was acquired from the Elmira Jackals in exchange for defenseman Matt Krug on January 25, 2011. Cameron recorded seven points (three goals, four assists) in 25 games with the Jackals.
The Saskatoon, Saskatchewan native ranked first in points (13) and goals (seven) with Gwinnett in the month of March. He ranked fourth in points among all ECHL rookies during that month.
Cameron skated parts of six seasons in the Western Hockey League with Saskatoon and Prince Albert before he turned pro last year. He tied a career best with 57 points (30 goals, 27 assists) in his final junior season in 2009-10 with Prince Albert. He recorded 170 points (86 goals, 84 assists) in 333 career games in the WHL.
Jackson joins Gwinnett for the 2011-12 season after he was acquired by the Gladiators last season on March 2, 2011 along with Devin Timberlake in exchange for defenseman Sam Roberts. In nine games with Gwinnett, Jackson was held scoreless. He earned two goals and seven assists in 30 games with Reading before being acquired by the Gladiators.
A native of Edson, Alberta, Jackson spent five seasons in the WHL where he amassed 30 goals, 70 assists and 173 penalty minutes in 174 games with Red Deer, Regina, Price George and Kelowna. In the 2009-2010 season, he led defensemen with the Prince George Cougars in goals with 11, assists with 18 and points with 29.
