Los Angeles Kings‘ 3rd round pick in the 2008 draft (#74 overall) defenseman Andrew Campbell(2) is rewarded with a two-year, two-way contract after posting career high assists, points and plus/minus last season with their top minor league affiliate Manchester Monarchs.
In 76 2011/2012 regular season games he scored a pair of goals and added 17 assists with a +14 rating, good enough for 2nd on the team.
He has yet to make his NHL debut but with his consistent play over the last two years, the 24-year old has to be close to a recall.
The xl-sized 6’4″ 207 lbs. prospect has already skated in a hefty 298 AHL games. Although he plays a physical game defending the zone, the big blue liner could continue to add more muscle and a little extra weight for greater impact.
