Campbell signs; Cup in Russia
The Kings today confirmed that they have re-signed defensive prospect Andrew Campbell to a two-year contract. Campbell became a restricted free agent on July 1. Drafted in the third round by the Kings in 2008, Campbell has spent the past four seasons with the Manchester Monarchs of the AHL. This season, he had two goals, 17 assists, a plus-14 rating and 54 penalty minutes in 76 regular-season games. Campbell, 24, is listed at 6-foot-3 and 207 pounds. The Kings’ remaining restricted free agents are Dwight King, Justin Azevedo (who is reportedly going to play in Europe), Thomas Hickey, Stefan Legein, David Meckler and Jake Muzzin.
Also, the Stanley Cup has made it to Russia, and Slava Voynov has been enjoying his day with it in Chelyabinsk and neighboring areas. Here are a couple pictures, first from the airport and then from a public celebration.
