The Muskegon Lumberjacks lost one of their returning players this week when Cameron Darcy signed with the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

The 19-year-old centerman is a native of South Boston, Mass. and was drafted by the Screaming Eagles in 2011.

Darcy spent the majority of last season with the Lumberjacks. He also played nine games with Northeastern (NCAA). In 45 games played for the Lumberjacks, he had 12 goals and 19 assists.

Darcy, 6-foot-1, 193 pounds, played for Team USA on both their Under 17 and Under 18 teams. He was part of the gold medal winning team in the 2012 IIHF World Under 18 Championships.

“Cameron feels the best place for him to achieve his goal of playing in the NHL is Cape Breton,” general manager and head coach Marc-André Dumont said in a release by the Screaming Eagles. “His international experience and his three seasons played in junior hockey in the USHL make him an experienced forward that will impact our roster.”
