Dallas Stars Trade Goaltender Jack Campbell To LA Kings For Defenseman Nick Ebert

The Dallas Stars have traded Jack Campbell to the LA Kings.

The Dallas Stars have traded goaltender Jack Campbell to the LA Kings in return for defenseman Nick Ebert.

Jack Campbell, the 11th pick of the 2010 draft, has had a troubled couple of years and it was questionable whether he would be re-signed by the Stars.

The Stars have acquired a defenseman who was selected with the final pick of the 2012 draft after falling from a potential first round pick.

Ebert has spent the last two years playing in the AHL and he had 26 points through 89 games in the AHL.

Here is the release from the Dallas Stars:

Dallas Stars General Manager Jim Nill announced today that the club has acquired defenseman Nick Ebert from the Los Angeles Kings in exchange for goaltender Jack Campbell.

Ebert, 22, appeared in 44 games for the Ontario Reign, Los Angeles' American Hockey League affiliate, and produced 12 points (2-10=12) and a +12 plus/minus rating. In four Calder Cup Playoff contests, he recorded 14 shots on net and two penalty minutes.

The two-year pro has appeared in 89 career AHL regular season games with Ontario and Manchester, registering 26 points (10-16=26) and a +25 plus/minus rating.

The 6-foot, 203-pound native of Livingston, New Jersey was originally selected by Los Angeles in the seventh round (211th overall) of the 2012 NHL Draft.

Campbell, 24, appeared in one career NHL game with Dallas, stopping 41 shots on Oct. 20, 2013 at Anaheim. In 122 regular season games played for the Texas Stars, he produced a 56-43-10 record with a 2.73 goals against average and a .908 save percentage.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound native of Port Huron, Michigan was originally selected by Dallas in the first round (11th overall) of the 2010 NHL Draft.
