Biography

Goalie Jack Cameron’s senior ice hockey career began in 1921, as a member of the St. Andrews College Juniors, but his fame was only a season around the corner as he transferred to the Toronto Granites in 1922. During his season with the Granites, the team won the Allan Cup, given annually to the Canadian senior amateur men’s ice hockey champions, and were invited to represent Canada at the 1924 Winter Olympics. The Canadians won the gold medal easily at the ice hockey tournament, and Cameron, playing in three games, let in only one goal, a shot from the United States in the tournament final. A common legend is that he was so bored during the games that he would regularly skate away from the net to flirt with ladies in the stands. He later denied this, claiming that the only girl he remembered from the tournament was a young Sonja Henie, who supported the team and, although finishing last in the singles figure skating competition that year, went on to win three successive gold medals in the sport. He later moved to the United States, where he died at the end of 1981.
