The team says it’s thrilled to have Cameron, who played with the Chiefs from 2015 to 2017 before joining the Broncos.

Cameron, who retweeted the announcement, was one of 13 players injured April 6 when Humboldt’s junior hockey team bus and a semi-trailer collided in rural Saskatchewan.

Sixteen people were killed.
