Jack Campbell Assigned; Austin Smith On The Way

Big news out of Dallas today is that goalie Jack Campbell (2010, 1st round) has been assigned to the Texas Stars. Campbell is not likely to dress tonight for Texas but will start practicing with the team this week and could be getting starts as early as next week, in my mind.

Just for his own sake, I would not start Campbell against OKC or TOR this weekend, and I would probably hold off until the next home game for his next start. That would be Hamilton on Thursday the 29th.

Austin Smith (2007, 5th round), leading scorer in the NCAA this season, also told Mike Heika this morning that he could sign his contract as early as today. A forward would be a much quicker addition to the lineup. He could play as early as Friday.
