Date:

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.
Nov 18 - 5:16 PM

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.
Nov 7 - 3:13 PM

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.
Oct 25 - 8:48 AM

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.
Oct 22 - 5:11 PM

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.
Oct 5 - 4:53 AM

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.
Oct 4 - 5:28 AM

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.
Jul 12 - 5:11 PM

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.
Jun 26 - 9:15 AM

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.
Jun 25 - 11:40 AM

The Dallas Stars have recalled Jack Campbell from the AHL.

The 24-year-old has played in one NHL game since being drafted by the Stars in 2010. He'll serve as the team's third goalie behind Kari Lehtonen and Antti Niemi.
May 1 - 12:10 PM

Jack Campbell has been assigned to the minors.

He learned some things from the big league during his practice sessions and will try to put them into practice in the minors. Campbell has a 3-3-0 record with a 3.80 goals-against average and an .873 save percentage in six AHL contests this season, so he has plenty of room for improvement.

Dallas goalie coach Jeff Reese likes what he has seen from prospect Jack Campbell.

"He's making some major changes in his game, and he's doing it on the fly in games that count," Reese said. "He's starting to find it now. He's had a couple of excellent practices, and now he's ready to go back and get some games and get some experience." Kari Lehtonen's pending return will put Campbell back in the minors, but he got to work with Reese during his call up. Campbell has struggled in the AHL so far this season, but the Stars are hopeful that he will turn it around.
