Afternoon Line- Jack Campbell

"I wanted to be here [in the NHL] so bad and I worked so hard to try to put myself in position to be here back when I was younger and it just kind of like, you just have to learn. Like anybody in this room, you can just sense how much they care and how hard they work, but they have that demeanor where it's not life or death. It's like they take it so serious, but at the end of the day you have to be able to look at life for what it is and, for me, it took me a long time to learn how to do that and that's kind of where I was at back then."

Morning Line- Jack Campbell

Campbell, on the team’s reaction after him getting his first win:
It just meant the world to me. Since I got traded here, the guys, I can’t speak highly enough about. So it was a really cool feeling and one I’ll never forget.

Campbell, on whether this game was just like any other:
I mean, for me it was a little bit more than just another game. Of course I want to prove to everybody, but most importantly my teammates, that they can count on me. So it was kind of weird because this was probably the biggest game I’ve played in and I felt the most comfortable just because of the surroundings and the locker room. Quickie was there to give me some tips on what their tendencies were and the boys played great in front of me, so it was awesome.

Jack Campbell On His Workout Routine In Port Huron

from Paul Costanzo of the Times Herald,

Jack Campbell is entering a “prove-it” year with the Dallas Stars organization. So to prepare, he came home.

“I love being back home in Port Huron, it just helps my mind so much,” Campbell said. “It’s so relaxing. I’m never in a rush. I’m just kind of hanging out and enjoying the beautiful scenery, so it’s good.”

The 23-year-old goaltender said he’s spent more time in Port Huron this summer than he has since 2010, the summer before his first Ontario Hockey League season in Windsor. It’s not just about relaxing, either. He’s teamed back up with strength and conditioning coach Mike Pearson to prepare for the Stars training camp, which begins on Sept. 19.

“Every time I come out here, I’m getting stronger, faster, more flexible,” Campbell said. “I’ve been really working on my body this summer. More importantly, I come out and work with coach because it really helps my mind. I’ve never felt more at ease and confident at the same time. It’s been a great summer.”

Jack Campbell May Make His NHL Debut Tonight Against The Ducks

from Mike Heika of the Dallas Morning News,

Stars coach Lindy Ruff said injured goalie Kari Lehtonen (lower body) is not ready to play and will not be activated from IR on Sunday. That means the Stars have a choice between playing Dan Ellis on a quick back-to-back or giving Jack Campell his NHL debut.

While Ruff would not say what his choice is, it’s pretty clear Campbell is playing tonight.

The 11th overall pick in the 2010 draft, Campbell has carried high expectations for a while. He’s been a big game goalie in his career, helping the United States to World Cup gold in 2010 and bronze in 2011. He was named top goalie at both of those tournaments....

In his step up to the pros, he’s been solid. He went 19-13-3 last season for the Texas Stars (AHL) and posted a 2.65 GAA and .905 save percentage. His biggest challenge has been that he’s an extremely high energy player. He works out with intensity, and he plays with intensity, and the Stars have been trying to find a balance in his approach.
