BOSTON, Mass. – The Boston Bruins get their training camp underway on Tuesday at the TD Garden in Boston, Mass. and have announced the roster and groupings for the camp. A noticeable addition to the training camp roster is former UMass Lowell River Hawk Scott Campbell.
Campbell spent last season between the Las Vegas Wranglers (ECHL) and Bridgeport Sound Tigers (AHL). While with the Wranglers, the forward tallied four goals and six assists for 10 points in 24 games. For the Sound Tigers, the AHL affiliate of the New York Islanders, the 27-year-old netted seven goals and 11 assists for 18 points over 46 games.
While with the Sound Tigers, Campbell played with former River Hawk Riley Wetmore during the final few games of the regular season. Wetmore finished his final season with the River Hawks and signed professionally with the Sound Tigers.
Campbell spent four seasons (2007-2011) with the River Hawks, one season as team captain (2010-11) during his senior year. The forward tallied 39 goals and 46 assists for 85 points over 126 NCAA games with his best season coming in 2009-10, when he tallied 16 goals and 18 assists for 34 points.
The Navan, Ont. native will join former River Hawk Bobby Robins in Group A at the Boston Bruins training camp. Robins spent four years at UMass Lowell (2002-2006), but didn’t skate with Campbell who joined the River Hawks in 2007. Robins signed a new deal with the Bruins in July and is not far from making his debut with the NHL club.
The Boston Bruins first preseason game is on September 16 against the Montreal Canadiens at the Bell Centre in Montreal.
