Campbell signed a two-year, $3.3 million contract extension with the Kings on Saturday. The deal ties Campbell to the Kings through the 2021-22 season. The 27-year-old certainly deserves the security, as he proved to be a superb backup last year with a 10-14-1 record and .928 save percentage. Starter Jonathan Quick's contract extends a year past Campbell's, so the latter figures to be a backup for the foreseeable future.
Campbell allowed four goals on 32 shots in Friday's 5-2 loss to the Ducks. Campbell has had some brilliant performances recently, but this was not one of them. The goalie's record fell to 10-14-1 with a 2.30 GAA and a .928 save percentage. He has a chance to start Saturday's season finale against the Golden Knights, as the Kings will likely not risk franchise goalie Jonathan Quick in a meaningless game.
Campbell will defend the road cage in Friday's game versus the Ducks, Curtis Zupke of the Los Angeles Times reports. Campbell is playing well down the stretch with a 3-0-0 record and .961 save percentage in his last five appearances, including Monday's outing where he held the Coyotes to just one goal on 50 shots. This is likely Campbell's final start of the season, so he can put an exclamation mark on an impressive campaign by stymieing the Ducks' worst-ranked offense (2.36 goals per game).
Campbell made 49 saves on 50 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Coyotes. Campbell was at his best from the start, stopping 19 shots in the first period alone. A two-point effort from Kyle Clifford helped Campbell skate away victorious. Campbell improved to 10-13-1 with a 2.23 GAA and a .930 save percentage. He's won his last three starts, allowing just three goals in that span to assemble a strong end of the season.
Campbell will tend the road twine in Tuesday's game versus the Coyotes, Richard Morin of the Arizona Republic reports. Campbell will start his third straight game as the Kings are trying to get the 27-year-old some crease time in the final stretch. He's had an excellent season as a backup to Jonathan Quick with a .927 save percentage and a 2.28 GAA, though the lack of offensive support has given him a 9-13-1 record. The Coyotes still have legitimate playoff hopes, but they've lost six of the last eight games and averaged 1.63 goals in that span.
