LOS ANGELES -- Despite having two solid defenseman still on the board, the Stars select goalie Jack Campbell.
Scouts consider him an elite goalie prospect, but one that may take some time to develop. The Stars could have selected defenseman Cam Fowler or Brandon Gormley, but opted for the goalie.
Campbell has talked in recent days about wanting to play for Dallas. He has a previous relationship with Stars goalie coach Mike Valley.
Campbell won a gold medal with Team USA at the 2010 World Junior Championships. He stopped 32 of 34 shots against Canada in the championship game after entering with his team down 3-0. The U.S. won in overtime.
He was in the U.S. Development Team and will play for Windsor in the OHL this upcoming season.
More to come later.
