WICHITA, Kan. — The Wichita Thunder, ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Edmonton Oilers and AHL’s Bakersfield Condors, recently announced that the team has signed former Oswego State men’s hockey standout and defenseman Devin Campbell for the 2019-20 season.
“We’re excited to have Devin as part of the Thunder family,” Thunder Coach Bruce Ramsay said. “(He is a big and) strong defensive defenseman who will do a great job eliminating the cycle and ensuring we spend as little time in the defensive zone as possible. Devin had a great (college) career and will add that grit and toughness that all Thunder fans love to see.”
Campbell, 25, begins his first year as a pro. A native of Greely, Ontario, the 6’2”, 216-pound defenseman began his college career at Niagara University before transferring to Oswego State (NCAA Division III). He served as an assistant captain during his junior campaign and was named captain as a senior. In 64 games with the Lakers, he recorded 23 points (one goal, 22 assists).
Campbell won back-to-back SUNY Athletic Conference Defensive Player of the Year Awards and was also named to the 2018-19 All-Tournament Team.
