The former Blenheim Blades forward scored 40 goals and added 29 assists last season in an injury shortened season for the Elmira Sugar Kings of the GOJHL’s Midwestern Conference. Named a first team all-star and awarded a Top Prospect Award by the Ontario Hockey Association, Campbell is an integral part of Maine’s 2013-2014 recruiting class.
“We are absolutely thrilled to welcome the newest class of Maine Black Bears into our Hockey Family,” said Maine Black Bears head coach Red Gendron in a team news release. “We feel that each will have an opportunity to contribute to the success of our program immediately and that each of these young men can develop themselves into top level players in Hockey East.”
Last season, Maine finished tied for 7th in the NCAA Hockey East Conference, tied with Vermont. The Black Bears closed out their season with an 11-19-8 record overall.
Maine will open their season October 6, hosting Dalhouise University, before playing back to back games at St. Lawrence October 11 and October 12.
Maine will also participate in an outdoor game this season as a part of the Frozen Fenway events. The Black Bears will play Boston University at Fenway Park in Boston on January 11.
