Fans restored faith in Jack Campbell

After a very disappointing first season with the Edmonton Oilers, Oil Country hopes that beleaguered goaltender Jack Campbell has turned a corner in his career with the team and will become the player they hoped he was after he left the Toronto Maple Leafs two years ago.

During his time with Toronto, he established himself as a goaltender who was capable of starting and helping lead the team into the playoffs. After the offseason began that year, the Maple Leafs began to move in a different direction and Campbell bolted to the Oilers for $5 million per season for five years.

In the past few games during this year's preseason, Campbell has looked like a different goaltender. He appears to have regained his confidence and has been giving the Oilers quality starts. His save quality has also gone up, and that was on full display tonight against the Seattle Kraken.

The fantastic save was made on last year's rookie of the year, Matty Beniers. The Oilers fan base took to social media and expressed how happy they were to see that Campbell may have returned to his great performances.

Of course, time will tell as the Oilers take on the regular season, and whether he can continue to show his talents and the numbers that will help the Oilers make the playoffs and go on a long run for a Stanley Cup. He's also on a mission to silence any doubters of his game.


The Oilers beat the Kraken 4-1. Campbell made 32 saves and posted a 1.00 GAA along with a .970 SV%.
