McAtee took part in the 2016 NA3HL Top Prospects Tournament for Team Red, scoring a goal in the event. he also spent a portion of the 2014-15 season playing in the NAPHL for the St. Louis Selects (now CarShield AAA) 18U team.
He saved his best individual season for his last one: in 2017-18 he found the back of the net 15 times and recorded 33 assists, plus six more points (2 G, 4 A) in the playoffs.
“The St. Louis Jr. Blues program wish Cam the best of luck as he starts the next chapter of his life,” said Jr. Blues coach Chris Flaugher. “We wish him all the best down in Fayetteville and look forward to him pursuing a college degree while playing hockey.”
McAtee becomes the seventh member of the 2017-18 Fraser Cup Final team to make a college commitment, and the tenth player with Jr. Blues ties to announce a decision to play college hockey this off-season.
