Cam Hillis

Montreal Canadiens

Fantasy Summary

Hard-working forward with a high level of maturity. A solid playmaker will also do all it takes to finish a play, either on the offensive or defensive end. Needs to work a bit on his skating.

Observations

April 2020 – Hillis has signed a three-year entry-level deal with the Canadiens. Pablo Ruiz

April 2020 –  This year saw Hillis have a breakout season for the Guelph Storm in which he put up 83 points in 62 games. His soft-touch and offensive creativity allowed him to be a dominant offensive force. Hillis also improved his defensive game this year which was reflected by the OHL coaches poll which ranked him 3rd in 3 different categories: best playmaker, best on faceoffs, and best defensive forward. The Canadiens are going to have to make a decision to sign Hillis this summer or they will lose his rights and he will become a free agent. Pablo Ruiz

November 2019 – After a disappointing year marred by injuries, Hillis has turned things around in a big way. The first seven games of his campaign were forgettable for the Canadiens’ prospect as he mustered only three points. The 21 games that followed have been gangbusters with Hillis scoring 30 points in that span. He currently sits 13th overall in scoring in the OHL and is a significant reason Guelph remains in the playoff hunt. Jesse Sherman

August 2018 – The expression might be a bit overused, but Cameron is a small player who plays like a giant. This tireless center has absolutely no fear whenever he touches the ice and has a way of finding himself in positions to scoop rebounds or lose pucks around the net. Hillis scored a respectable 59 points in 60 games for Guelph in the Ontario Hockey League the past season and rapidly became the team’s number one center despite his 17-year-old rookie status.  If he makes it to the NHL, his real life value could be higher than his fantasy impact.
