Before embarking on a business career, Rob was fortunate to play four seasons in the WHL. 3 of those years as teammates with Cam Moon with the Saskatoon Blades.
A loss in the 1989 Memorial Cup in overtime to the Swift Current Broncos was thankfully overcome by a down-to-the-wire win in 1992 as Rob played for the Kamloops Blazers who took home the championship trophy.
Rob absorbed much of what he learned in hockey and took it into the business world. To this day he considers himself a gritty, creative, get er’ done, goes into the corner… type of guy. He is the Principal of Road 55, a company focused on creating content that connects for a variety of businesses.
In addition to his work, he’s always been very involved in community organizations and events. He is the former chair of the City of St. Albert Brand Leadership team, which oversaw the creation and implementation of the city’s new brand. He also served as member of the St. Albert Economic Development Advisory Committee and was the President of the St. Albert Chamber of Commerce. He also was a member of both the 2002 & 2010 Grey Cup organizing committees and sat on the Edmonton Eskimo Gridiron Gang and coached in St. Albert Minor Hockey.
Cam has been working in broadcasting and hockey since 1992. He is now the radio voice for the NHL's Edmonton Oilers. Prior, he had been the radio voice of the Red Deer Rebels of the Western Hockey League since 1998. Before that, he called three seasons of the Nanaimo Clippers in the British Columbia Hockey League from 1995-98.
Cam has worked extensively in television as well, providing colour commentary on TSN and Sportsnet on junior hockey broadcasts from 1992-2001 and a variety of roles with SHAW’s WHL coverage from 2005-2017. He has broadcasted Memorial Cups in 1993 (Sault Ste. Marie, ON), 1995 (Kamloops, BC), 2000 (Halifax, NS), 2001 (Regina, SK), and 2016 (Red Deer, AB).
Cam was the roving reporter for TSN at the 1995 World Junior Championship in Red Deer and has broadcasted three Royal Bank Cups (National Junior A Championship) and six Air Canada Cups (National 18U Championship).
Cam graduated from the Radio and Television Arts program at NAIT after playing junior hockey in Saskatoon and Medicine Hat of the WHL, and Nipawin of the SJHL. Cam is a product of Edmonton’s Maple Leaf Athletic Club.
