Here’s a riddle: When you’re a goalie with great stats, but not getting noticed, what’s the best way to lift up scouts’ heads?

Answer: Step in as a backup goaltender at the World Juniors and completely shut down the five-time defending world champions.

That’s just what US National Team goaltender Jack Campbell did. And head-lifting he did.

"Most goaltenders thrown into a gold medal game would step in nervous and not want to see a lot of shots, but Jack wanted to see very puck come his way so he could gain control of the game," one scout said to "He was down when he didn't get to start, but he was able to focus on the moment and stay prepared in case a chance came his way."
