LA Kings Goaltender Jack Campbell’s Journey to the NHL


On January 30, goaltender Jack Campbell watched from the bench as former LA Kings netminder Darcy Kuemper stopped 28 shots on goal to blank the Dallas Stars in a 3-0 victory.

Campbell – the 26-year-old former Dallas Stars first-round pick who played in just one NHL game in six years with that organization – tried to keep his emotions in check throughout the contest, but really deep down, he badly wanted the Kings to pull out the victory. He took part in the game as a backup because he was recalled from the AHL due to an injury to starter Jonathan Quick.
