Director of Player Development
Cam Stewart’s extensive hockey background and unique understanding of the professional hockey industry from his days as a former KO Sports client make him a valuable member of the KO Sports team.
Based out of Toronto, Cam is primarily responsible for overseeing the development of top tier prospects and clients in addition to assisting the development of all KO Sports clients.
Cam enjoyed a successful career as a player, appearing in 9 professional seasons with the Boston Bruins, Florida Panthers and Minnesota Wild. Cam was also named an IHL All-Star and won a Turner Cup under the guidance of Dave Tippet (former Arizona Coyotes Head Coach), who remains a mentor to Cam today.
Prior to his professional career, Cam played three seasons for the University of Michigan after previously earning MVP honors as a junior player in Mid-Western Junior B. Cam’s professional playing career was cut short due to injuries, but his undying passion for the game naturally lead him to the business side of the industry.
Prior to joining KO Sports, Cam compiled years of experience as a coach, serving as Head Coach of the St. Mikes Buzzers in the OPJHL and served as an Assistant Coach for the Houston Aeros of the AHL. While an Assistant Coach with the Aeros, Cam served as an assistant to the President, aiding with the club’s business operations. Most recently, Cam served as Vice President of BiteTech Inc, an Exclusive Licensee of mouthwear for UnderArmour.
My family and I have worked with Kevin Magnuson and KO sports since 2006 after Kevin saw me play in the USHL Fall Classic for Waterloo. Kevin has helped guide me through the USHL, NCAA and NHL and all the good and bad that comes with each League. His experience as a former practicing attorney was really helpful in negotiating all three of my NHL contracts. Kevin and KO Sports were especially prepared for the salary arbitration hearing we had in 2015 with Nashville that ended with me eventually earning an awesome, life changing 5-year deal.
