Jack Campbell not going to World Championship
By Mark Stepneski
CEDAR PARK, Texas -- Texas Stars goaltender Jack Campbell said he has decided to pass on invitation to represent the USA at the World Championship.
The 20-year-old netminder said he'd like to take a break after his season ends this weekend.
"I want to get some rest," Campbell said this morning after Texas' optional skate at the Cedar Park Center.
Campbell, Dallas' first round pick (11th overall) in 2010, has had a long season. It began with a couple games at the NHL Prospect Tournament in September and has gone on to include 46 games in juniors, five games at the World Junior championship and ten games so far with the Texas Stars, who play their final two games this weekend.
Campbell went to the World Championship last year, serving as the No. 3 goaltender for the Americans.
Dallas Stars defenseman Alex Goligoski and Stars goaltender Richard Bachman both are on the Team USA roster for the World Championship, which gets underway May 4 in Sweden and Finland.
Scott Glennie to miss final two games of season
The Texas Stars will be without forward Scott Glennie for the final two games of the season. Texas GM Scott White said Glennie injured his wrist in Friday night's game at San Antonio and will miss tonight's home game against Oklahoma City and Sunday's season finale at at Houston.
Glennie, Dallas' first round pick (8th overall) in 2009, has 37 points (12 goals, 25) in 70 games for Texas this season.
