May 2013- This season saw Campbell add a degree of on-ice maturity to his game which had been lacking. Stars goalie coach Mike Valley also worked on slowing Campbell's game down and making him calmer in net. The result was Campbell taking another positive step forward. He finished with a record of 19-13-3 in his first full pro season. He split time with Cristopher Nilstorp during the regular season, but served as the backup during the playoffs. Campbell did not see any action in the Stars nine playoff games. Rex Doty
March 2013 - The Dallas Stars have recalled goaltender Jack Campbell from the Texas Stars of the AHL. With back to back games scheduled March 20th and 21st, there is a good chance that Campbell will get the opportunity to make his NHL debut. In 32 games this season with the Texas Stars, Campbell has a 14-10-3-3 record and sits with a 2.59 GAA and 0.906 save percentage. Keep an eye on Campbell as he could earn a few more starts if Kari Lehtonen is sidelined with any type of injury. Brendan Ross
December, 2012 - Struggled in his AHL debut in March of 2012, giving up 26 goals on 223 shots. Showed some improvement, but not a lot, early on in 2012-13 for Texas. But Campbell's time has been limited due to Cristopher Nilstorp's arrival. Still on the right track, but progress will take time. - Dobber
December, 2011 – Jack Campbell ought to start wearing a Team USA jersey under his Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds sweater. He’d probably never allow another goal in OHL competition. Traded to the Soo in the off-season after a disappointing debut with Windsor in 10-11, Campbell’s faced a litany of shots for a Greyhounds team that hasn’t been able to score that many themselves. While facing a lot of action isn’t the worst thing for a goalie prospect, it’s likely not the kind of major junior career Campbell- or the Stars- envision when he gave up a commitment to Michigan.
Fantasy Outlook: B-
Good upside, but will need a few years to hone his skills.
