Jack Campbell wins Windsor debut

9/24/2010

Stars goaltending prospect Jack Campbell won his Ontario Hockey League debut, stopping 27 of 31 shots as the Windsor Spitfires rallied to beat the Plymouth Whalers 5-4 in Windsor Thursday night.

I watched online and thought Campbell - the Stars' 1st round pick (11th overall) in 2010 - played well. It was a solid performance in what was a sloppy game in front of him at times.

Plymouth dominated the game for basically the first 35 minutes, building a 4-1 lead. Windsor had a young defense for the game and it showed. Campbell faced several quality chances and didn’t have a chance on a couple of the goals. He kept his team around it though, and they were able to rally.

Windsor scored late in the second to make it a 4-2 game and then scored three unanswered goals in the third to get the win. Campbell was hugging his teammates at the end of the night.
