Round 1 – 11th overall
Dallas Stars – Jack Campbell
6’2, 175 lbs. Goalie, USA U-18
The Dallas Stars are in the process of saying goodbye to their longtime franchise goalie Marty Turco and plan to roll the dice with the flighty but talented Kari Lehtonen for the near future. Either way, the team could use another prospect in between the pipes, so nabbing Campbell – a hero for the gold medal winning US 18-and-under World Championship team – can’t hurt.
Campbell has a reputation for having a little bravado, but that’s not always a bad thing. Besides, goalies tend to be pretty strange folks anyway, right?
