Jack Campbell went unclaimed on waivers.
Campbell ultimately lost out to Darcy Kuemper in the battle for the backup job with Los Angeles. Campbell had a 2.52 GAA and .914 save percentage in 52 AHL contests last season and it seems he'll begin 2017-18 at that level instead. It wouldn't be surprising to see him get summoned in the event of an injury though. Oct 3 - 4:39 AM

Jack Campbell has been placed on waivers by Los Angeles.

Campbell was beat out by Darcy Kuemper for the team's backup goalie job. He posted solid numbers for the Ontario Reign of the AHL last year, but he still hasn't been able to establish a foothold at the NHL level. Campbell has appeared in just two games in the big league in his career since he was chosen with the 11th overall pick in 2010.

Goaltender Jack Campbell is back on the NHL radar screen as he is having a comeback season in the AHL.

The former first round pick and 11th overall in 2010 has floundered most of his career in the minors and Dallas gave up on him. The injury on opening night to Jonathan Quick opened a door for him. Peter Budaj was supposed to start in the minors for Ontario with Campbell as his backup, but Budaj was recalled and played well, leaving the starting AHL gig to Campbell. He has not disappointed as he is 26-12-6 with a 2.59 GAA and a .912 save percentage. "I definitely needed a fresh start," he said. "Being that highly touted and then really just dropping the ball, you’re going to go through some stuff off the ice too, and I did, just as a person," Campbell said. "It was nice to be able to come here where guys just welcomed me as a teammate and everything else that happened on the ice because of the situation all the goalies were put in, that was great for my season to be able to play to gel with the guys being the guy who’s been playing a lot."

Jack Campbell sustained a groin injury while playing in the AHL.

The severity of Campbell's injury isn't clear, but if it is serious then it's an unfortunate setback for the 24-year-old. The once promising prospect is trying to turn his career around with a new franchise in Los Angeles. So far he has a 2.99 GAA and .899 save percentage in six AHL contests.

Jack Campbell has been returned to AHL Ontario.

Jeff Zatkoff is healthy enough to return from his groin injury, so Campbell's demotion was expected. Despite being with Los Angeles since Oct. 22 with the exception of one brief stint back in the AHL, Campbell didn't end up starting in a contest with the Kings.

The LA Kings have summoned Jack Campbell up from AHL Ontario.

The recall comes in response to Jeff Zatkoff's latest groin injury. Campbell has seen just four games of action so far this season, one for the Kings. Based on their usage of Peter Budaj this season we wouldn't expect much from Campbell.

Jack Campbell has been returned to the minors.

He isn't listed on the Kings' roster anymore even though an official announcement hasn't come from the team yet. Jeff Zatkoff is available to return from a groin injury, so Campbell is no longer needed. He played just one period and stopped all five shots he faced on Nov. 1 against Anaheim.

This is a potentially big opportunity for Jack Campbell.

Campbell wasn't expected to get a shot with the Kings this quickly, but he's been summoned by Los Angeles because starter Jonathan Quick and backup Jeff Zatkoff are both injured. That's left Peter Budaj as the de facto starter, but the Kings have back-to-back games coming up on Saturday and Sunday, so Campbell might get a start at that point. At one time Campbell was regarded as Dallas' goaltender of the future, but Campbell struggled and even spent some time in the ECHL in 2014-15 and 2015-16. Now he's got a fresh start with the Kings though and potentially an early opportunity to show what he's capable of now at the NHL level.

The LA Kings have recalled Jack Campbell on an emergency basis.

Campbell will backup Peter Budaj while they figure out what their best decision is with Jeff Zatkoff.

Jack Campbell went unclaimed on waivers.

No real surprise there, though certainly it does highlight how far the former first round pick's stock has fallen. Campbell might still bounce back, but he will likely spend the full 2016-17 campaign in the minors.

Jack Campbell has been waived by the Los Angeles Kings.

At one time Campbell was seen as the Dallas Stars' goalie of the future, but the 24-year-old's career has hit a rough patch. He posted a 3.65 GAA and .884 save percentage in 19 AHL contests last season and ended up spending an additional 20 games in the ECHL. Now with Los Angeles, he'll need to prove himself in the minors in order to put him back on a path to the NHL.

Jack Campbell's recently signed contract with the Kings comes with a $612,500 cap hit if he plays in the NHL.

Campbell's two-year deal is two-ways though. He can earn $575,000 in the NHL or $100,000 in the minors in 2016-17. The following season his potential NHL salary increases to $650,000, but his AHL salary remains at $100,000.

Jack Campbell has signed a two-year contract with the Los Angeles Kings.

Dallas dealt Campbell to Los Angeles in June in exchange for Nick Ebert. Though Campbell was the 11th overall pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, he struggled to establish himself in the Stars' organization and even spent some time in the ECHL in each of the last two campaigns. A fresh start might be what the 24-year-old needs to turn his career around.

Stars GM Jim Nill felt that goalie Jack Campbell needed a change of scenery.

"Sometimes, a change of pace in the best thing," said Nill. "Jack needs to go somewhere to get playing and get his confidence back." Campbell was selected 11th overall back in 2010, but he's failed to develop into an NHL goalie at this point. He'll likely never develop into the franchise player he was supposed to be, but he could turn out to be a decent backup goalie to Jonathan Quick.

Jack Campbell is a member of the Los Angeles Kings' organization now.

He was traded by Dallas to the Kings on Saturday for defenseman Nick Ebert. Campbell split time between the AHL and the ECHL last season. The Stars chose him 11th overall back in 2010 and he still hasn't seen any NHL playing time.
