Edmonton Oilers place struggling goaltender Jack Campbell on waivers
EDMONTON - The Edmonton Oilers have placed struggling goaltender Jack Campbell on waivers and plan to assign him to their American Hockey League affiliate.
Campbell has a 1-4-0 record with a 4.50 goals-against average and .873 save percentage in five appearances this season.
The 31-year-old from Port Huron, Mich., has a 22-13-4 record with a 3.53 GAA and .886 save percentage since signing a five-year, US$25-million contract with Edmonton before the 2022-23 season.
Campbell's likely demotion to the AHL's Bakersfield Condors, provided he clears waivers, leaves Stuart Skinner as the clear No. 1 in Edmonton's goal.
But Skinner has struggled as well in 2023-24 with a 1-4-1 record, 3.99 GAA and .856 save percentage in seven appearances.
Skinner was in goal for Edmonton's 6-2 loss at Vancouver on Monday night, giving up six goals on 36 shots.
