Jack Campbell stellar in USA victory over Sweden

Stars goaltending prospect Jack Campbell stopped all 23 shots he faced and picked up an assist in USA Blue’s 4-3 overtime win over Sweden Monday afternoon at the USA Hockey National Junior Evaluation Camp in Lake Placid, NY.

Campbell played the first half of the game for USA Blue and looked sharp in net, turning away 12 shots in the first period and then 11 shots in the first half of the second period.

The Stars’ 1st round pick (11th overall) in 2010 has now stopped 52 of 55 shots in about 90 minutes of play at the camp.

Defenseman John Klingberg (5th round/2010) scored one goal for Sweden. It came on a shot from the point with the Swedes on the power play. Klingberg saw plenty of time on Sweden’s power play and also a little time on the penalty kill.

Defenseman Patrik Nemeth (2nd round/2010) was involved in the game as well, especially on the penalty front. He took a roughing minor at the end of the first period during a scrum as time expired. He was in the penalty box for interference when the USA took a 3-2 lead with a power play goal in the third period. As he came out of the box after that goal he was given an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty and then was ejected.

The box score from the game is here.

Sweden plays Finland on Tuesday afternoon.
