Rookie head coach at Cyclones' helm

Malcolm Cameron earned his first head coaching job Thursday, taking the helm of the Cincinnati Cyclones.
It's a challenge I've prepared myself for, Cameron, 32, said.
He replaces interim coach Paul Lawless, who in March took over for fired coach Ray Edwards.
Cameron has spent the last five seasons as an assistant coach. He was an assistant last season with the Columbia (S.C.) Inferno of the East Coach Hockey League, and in 2000-2001 with the Western Professional Hockey League's Lubbock (Texas) Cotton Kings. Cameron also coached for his alma mater, Acadia University in Nova Scotia, for 2 1/2 years.
Cameron played at Acadia from 1990-93 and helped the Axemen win the '93 Canadian National Collegiate Championship. Cameron also played professional hockey in the ECHL, WPHL and Central Hockey League from 1993-98.
It's certainly more responsibility, Cameron said of his new position. But in terms of the work I put in, it will be the same. I've always been hard working, and that won't change on any job.
Pat Pylypuik, Cyclones president/chief operating officer, said Cameron came highly recommended.
He's got a great work ethic and a lot of connections to find the best available players, Pylypuik said in a statement.
Cameron is a native of Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia. He and his family will move to Cincinnati in early July.
