Traverse City notes: Campbell eyes the No. 1 job in Austin; Jokipakka impresses

Dallas Stars goaltending prospect Jack Campbell picked up a new sport this summer, and he hopes it will help him in the net.

“I learned how to play tennis this summer, and I played a lot,” Campbell said. “It’s my new favorite thing.”

Campbell caught the tennis bug after reading an article about one of the best goaltenders in the game, Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers, who is an avid tennis player.

“It kind of helps my athletic ability. It keeps my reflexes going,” Campbell said. “I saw that article, tried it and loved it. It’s great. It’s kind of like goaltending in that you focus on the next shot and you can’t get too high or too low. It’s funny how they are similar.”

Campbell, who is among the Stars goaltenders at the NHL Prospect Tournament in Traverse City, Michigan, is getting ready to start his second professional season. In 2012-13 he played for the Texas Stars of the AHL, posting a 19-13-3 record, 2.65 goals against average and .905 save percentage.
