Flames sign OHL leader

The most decorated goal-scorer in the Ontario Hockey League this season is the latest member of the Calgary Flames.

Barrie Colts sniper Bryan Cameron inked a free-agent deal with the Flames Friday amid a battle for the OHL title.

His Colts are battling the Windsor Spitfires for the championship and a spot in the Memorial Cup.

Flames GM Darryl Sutter has had his eyes on players on both sides during the major-junior post-season — current Flames prospect Greg Nemisz is a winger with the Spitfires, and draft pick T.J. Brodie patrols the blueline for the Colts.

The 21-year-old Cameron scored a CHL-best 53 goals in 62 games during the regular season, and has added 11 more tallies in 15 playoff games so far.

At 5-foot-11 and 196 lb., the Brampton, Ont., product should at worst bolster the AHL Abbotsford Heat lineup next season.

Flames fans will hope he's the next Mark Giordano — an undrafted free agent signing that went from AHL all-star to a dependable regular with the Flames.

Cameron was drafted 82nd overall in the third round by the Los Angeles Kings in 2007, but never signed with the team.
