Boise, Idaho – Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Brad Ralph announced that goaltender Jack Campbell has been reassigned by the NHL’s Dallas Stars to the Idaho Steelheads.
The Steelheads are the ECHL affiliate of the Stars and the Texas Stars of the American Hockey League.
The 23-year-old Campbell will join Idaho from Texas, where he has spent virtually his entire professional career after being selected by Dallas in the first round (11th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. The Port Huron, Mich. native is in line to be the second NHL first-round draft pick to play for Idaho in the ECHL era, joining Adrian Foster (2001, New Jersey Devils).
In 87 games in the American Hockey League, Campbell is 38-33-9 with a 2.62 goals-against average. He has also appeared in one game in the NHL, making 41 saves for the Stars in a loss at Anaheim on Oct. 20, 2013. Campbell had a strong junior career as well, including a gold medal representing the United States in the 2010 IIHF Under-20 World Championships and earning “Best Goaltender” recognition at the same event in 2011.
