2008-09: Cameranesi scored 5 goals with 2 assists in 25 games as a sophomore for Wayzata (MN) High School.
2009-10: Cameranesi scored 18 goals with 31 assists in 28 games (including the state tournament) as a junior for Wayzata. Wayzata, after winning the Classic Lake Conference title and finishing 20-2-3 in the regular season, fell to Eden Prairie in the second round of the state tournament. He was selected by the Waterloo Black Hawks in the fifth round (61st overall) of the USHL Entry Draft.
2010-11: Cameranesi scored 18 goals with 19 assists in 24 games in the pre-season Upper Midwest Elite Hockey League and then scored 17 goals with 46 assists for Wayzata HS as a senior. Cameranesi, Wild prospect Mario Lucia, and Tyler Klein formed one of the top lines in Minnesota high school hockey as Wayzata advanced to the Section 6AA finals before falling to Lake Conference rival and eventual state champion Eden Prairie in a classic, double overtime contest. Cameranesi is committed to playing college hockey at Minnesota-Duluth in 2012-13. Cameranesi was selected by the Maple Leafs in the 5th round (130th overall) in the 2011 NHL Draft.
Cameranesi is a small, quick playmaker whose biggest assets are his speed and ability to generate scoring chances. Cameranesi will spend a year in junior hockey before starting his college career. While no doubt teams shied away from him in the draft because of his size, he will have the opportunity to add the strength and bulk necessary to compete at the pro level.
Cameranesi attended the Leafs prospect camp and will play for Waterloo in the USHL in 2011-12 before enrolling at Minnesota-Duluth the following season. Cameranesi was one of the top players in Minnesota high school hockey but will need time to adjust to the more physical style of junior hockey and, eventually, college and pro hockey. At this point, he is a long-term project but does have good offensive instincts and should benefit from the longer development curve afforded college players.
