History

2008-09: In 10 starts for the US NTDP Under-18 nationa squad, Jack Campbell turned in a 7-0-0 record, a 1.71 goals-against average, and a .950 save percentage.  In 21 starts for the Under-18 squad playing in the NAHL, Campbell logged a 14-6-1 record, a 2.52 goals-against average, and a .906 save percentage.  Part of the gold medal-winning Team USA squad at the 2009 Under-18 World Championships.

2009-10: Campbell played for the US NTDP squad competing in the USHL.  In 11 games, he turned in a 6-3-1 record, a 2.21 goals-against average, and a .917 save percentage.  Campbell won gold with Team USA at the 2010 Under-20 World Junior Championships.  Dominated the U18 World Junior Championships tournament.  In six games, he posted a miniscule 0.83 GAA and a wicked .965 save percentage winning the USA the gold medal and himself the MVP honors of the tournament.

2010-11: Moved to Windsor of the Ontario League.  Struggled early on especially and only played average for most of the season behind a fledgling defense and huge expectations.  Very pedestrian numbers during the regular season, but in typical Campbell fashion, stepped up in the playoffs and helped spur the Spitfires into the Conference Finals.  He was undone by the eventual OHL champion Owen Sound Attack, but it was a promising run.  In his other big-game tourney, he was superb in the U20 World Junior Championships (1.70 GAA, .941 save pct.) earning the U.S. a bronze medal and was named the tournament’s best goaltender.

2011-12: In a disappointing season in terms of results, Campbell continued to display the potential of an elite goaltending prospect. He made his pro debut with Dallas AHL affiliate Texas as a 20-year-old following his second OHL season, appearing in 12 games and finishing 4-7 with 1 shutout and a 3.02 goals against and .912 save percentage. The Stars missed the AHL playoffs; finishing last in the West Division. Campbell played in his third World Junior Championship tournament with the USA, which finished in seventh place. Playing five of six games, Campbell was 3-2 with a 2.62 goals against and .906 save percentage. In OHL play, he was obtained by Sault Ste. Marie from Windsor in a mid-season trade to bolster the Greyhounds’ playoff push; which ultimately fell short. In 46 OHL games (12 with the Spitfires), he was 21-22 with 7 losses in overtime and 2 shutouts. Campbell finished the OHL season with a 3.46 goals against and .896 save percentage.

2012-13: Campbell appeared in 40 games for Dallas AHL affiliate Texas in his first pro season. Due in part to the recalls of Richard Bachman and Cristopher Nilstorp to the NHL, he handled the bulk of the goaltending in the second half and was 19-13-3 with 2 shutouts. He had a 2.65 goals against and .905 save percentage. The Texas Stars finished first in the South Division and reached the second round in the playoffs. Campbell did not see any action in the playoffs as Nilstorp started all nine games.

2013-14: Campbelll made the first start of his NHL career during an emergency call-up in October. He spent most of the season with Dallas AHL affiliate Texas — missing a good portion of the year while dealing with a nagging leg injury.  He faced 47 shots and allowed six goals in a 6-3 loss at Anaheim in his only NHL start.  He suffered the knee injury at the end of October after two starts with the Texas Stars — playing three games in December and then being out of the lineup for Texas  again until March. In 16 regular season AHL games he was 12-2-2 with four shutouts and had a 1.49 goals against and .942 save percentage. Texas finished first in the West Division and won the Calder Cup. Campbell spent most of the playoffs backing up Swedish veteran Cristopher Nilstorp. In four playoff games he was 2-1 with a 2.54 goals against and 2.54 save percentage. 

2014-15: Campbell attended camp with Dallas before being assigned to Texas to start his third pro season. Splitting time with free agent Jussi Rynnas before the rookie from Finland was recalled by Dallas, he won two of his first three starts but then struggled. Briefly assigned to the ECHL’s Idaho Steelheads in February he finished the year on a positive note, playing for the USA at the 2015 IIHF World Championship. In 35 regular season AHL games he was 14-14-0 with two shutouts and had a 3.03 goals against and .907 save percentage. The Stars finished second in the West Division and were swept by Rockford in a best-of-five first round series. Campbell allowed 3 goals on 27 shots in a 4-1 loss in his only playoff start against the IceHogs. He was 5-2 with one shutout and had a 1.73 goals against and .945 save percentage in seven ECHL games. Campbell was 1-1 with a 3.50 goals against and .825 save percentage in two games for the USA. The Stars re-signed Campbell to a one-year contract as a restricted free agent in June 2015. 

Talent Analysis

Campbell is an athletic goaltender with great reflexes.  He never gives up on plays and competes hard on every shot.  Sometimes he overplays the on-coming rush and can get into trouble.  Campbell has a very good glove and blocker.  He stickhandles very well and is a fine outlet passer. A big pressure goalie during this junior carer, he shows up majorly in big game situations,  loves to compete, has a winning attitude with confidence and is always looking to improve.  As with many young goalies Campbell is still inconsistent at times but should allow fewer untimely soft goals as he continues to mature.

Future

Campbell has had a challenging first three seasons during his pro career and those challenges continued when he suffered a hand injury to start the 2015-16 season, beginning the year on injured reserve. Once healthy he was assigned to AHL affiliate Texas and in January he was re-assigned to the ECHL's Idaho Steelheads. The 11th player taken in the 2010 NHL Draft, Campbell was projected to be a dominant franchise-type goalie and the Stars' organization is giving him every opportunity to reach that potential. To this point he continues to scuffle.

Although his team’s finish at the 2012 World Junior Championship was not what he had hoped, USA goaltender Jack Campbell managed to cap off his NTDP career with a 2-1 win over Switzerland.  The win gives Campbell the most wins by a goaltender at the World Juniors, breaking the record that had been held by current New York Islanders goaltender, Al Montoya.

After several graduations a few seasons ago, the Stars have built their prospect pool backup to a very impressive point. They still lack major blue-chippers but they have a lot of talent and a good mix of prospects in the system that can fill various roles at the next level. They’ve advanced their cause big time in terms of adding quality defensive and goaltending prospects.

Despite some struggles for the first-year junior prospect, Jack Campbell remains atop the Stars prospect pool. He’s followed by nearly-ready blueliner Philip Larsen who has made his way to North America after a successful foundation was laid in Sweden. The Stars top pick in 2009, Scott Glennie falls to fourth with the emerging dominance of Hockey East standout Alex Chiasson. The Stars crop has some excellent depth growing and waiting in the wings.

The Stars have six players playing Canadian major junior hockey this year (including one signed last week) and another playing in the USHL.

The Stars newest blue-chip prospect is also the newest number one prospect in the system. With the unexpected free-fall of touted defensemen Brandon Gormley and Cam Fowler, it looked like the Stars were set to bolster their depleted rearguard reserves. They went in a different direction though. Just days away from the Stars letting their long-time franchise netminder walk away to unrestricted free agency, the Stars may have just ushered in the new guard with Jack Campbell. Four of the Stars five draftees in 2010 premier on the new top 20 list.
