Kings acquire Jack Campbell; Nick Ebert traded to Dallas - LA Kings Insider

The Kings have traded defenseman Nick Ebert to Dallas for goaltender Jack Campbell. They’re about to select another player; this thread will be updated as I get more information. The snap judgment: Los Angeles needs to re-stock its goaltending pool, and Campbell is a player who fits that mold of a player who provides that depth. Campbell was a major goaltending prospect coming out of the OHL and was selected 11th overall when the Kings hosted the draft in 2011. I’ll have reaction from the team throughout the day.

The 24-year-old Campbell was 7-7-5 with a 3.65 goals-against average and an .884 save percentage with AHL-Texas and 14-5-1 with a 1.68 goals-against average and .884 save percentage with ECHL-Idaho this past season. The former gold medalist with the United States at the World Junior Championships has appeared in one NHL game with Dallas.

The 22-year-old Ebert, selected 211th overall in 2012, had 26 points (10-16=26) in 89 regular season games over two AHL season with Ontario and Manchester.
