Jack Campbell is counting on himself

EDMONTON, AB – There isn’t a lot of chill from goaltender Jack Campbell when it comes to showing his affection, including spoiling his pets on their big day.

Speaking to the media for the first time on Wednesday as a member of the Edmonton Oilers, the 30-year-old answered for the iconic cat-birthday photo for his feline friend ‘Buds’ that made its rounds through social media earlier this year.

“I’ve been a cat dad for a few years now and my male cat Buds had a birthday,” he said with a smile. “My new fiancée, I just got engaged a few weeks ago so I’m still working on the lingo, the two of us decided to throw him a little birthday party and he had a nice time.”
