Great NewsEli 12.2s friend Jack Campbell was called up to the Dallas Stars earlier this week. The next day, the Stars put their starting goalie, Kari Lehtonen, on the injured reserve list.
That means Jack is going to stay for a while, and even better, he may be getting the start on Thursday against San Jose. It's incredible--he's only 21, and he'll be starting in the NHL.
Eli still has his signed stick from last year that Jack gave him after practice. Jack was incredibly generous with his time, and we are absolutely his biggest fans. I even told Eli last year that we would travel to see Jack's first game in the NHL. With Eli's hockey season in full swing, though, that's unfortunately not going to happen, but we'll be watching and cheering from home.
