Following the trade of Anthony DeAngelo, who went from the Tampa Bay Lightening to the Arizona Coyotes, a second former Soo Greyhounds star got dealt on Saturday at part two of the National Hockey League Entry Draft.
The Dallas Stars have traded former Soo Greyhounds goaltender Jack Campbell to the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for defenceman Nick Ebert.
Campbell, a native of Port Huron, Michigan, spent this past season splitting time with the AHL’s Texas Stars and the ECHL’s Idaho Steelheads.
The 24 year old, who was selected in the first round (11th overall) by the Dallas Stars at the 2010 National Hockey League Entry Draft, spent his first 1.5 Ontario Hockey League seasons with the Windsor Spitfires from 2010-2012, before coming over to the Hounds in big blockbuster trade during the 2011-2012 season.
That year, Campbell came over in a trade with the Windsor Spitfires in exchange for defenceman MacKenzie Braid, prospect Pat Sieloff along with six draft picks.
Through 34 regular season games with the Hounds, Campbell had 15 wins, 12 losses, 2 overtime losses, 3 shootout losses, and 1 shutout.
In 2012, Campbell became first Soo Greyhound since John Vanbiesbrouck (1983) to suit up for Team USA at the IIHF World Junior Championship, and to this day, he is only one of four Soo Greyhounds to play for Team USA at the IIHF World Juniors, joining John Vanbiesbrouck (1982 & 1983), Brandon Halverson (2015 & 2016), and Anthony DeAngelo (2015).
Throughout his time with the American Hockey League’s Texas Stars from 2011-2016 , Campbell also played one game with the National Hockey League’s Dallas Stars during the 2013-2014 season.
