Encyclopedia > Cam Barker

Cameron Barker (born April 4th, 1986 in Winnipeg, Manitoba is a Canadian junior ice hockey defenceman. He was drafted in the 1st round, 3rd overall, in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft by the Chicago Blackhawks.
Barker currently plays for the Medicine Hat Tigers of the Western Hockey League. He was signed to an entry-level contract by the Blackhawks on August 22nd, 2005, but played only one game with the team before being returned to the Tigers. This may have been a blessing in disguise for Barker, as he had another shot of representing Canada at the World Junior Hockey Championship. Barker was a part of the 2005 gold winning team, but got mononucleosis mid-way through the tournament. He was the only returning player from the previous year on the 2006 team. The team repeated as gold medalists, defeating Russia in the final.
