Jack Campbell Concedes the Most Catastrophic Goal Ever Witnessed on Screen

The Edmonton Oilers Jack Campbell's up-and-down season continues with an awful down moment in the AHL last night where the netminder gave up a goal that is being described as the most Jack Campbell goal you'll ever see.

Jack Campbell Gives Up a Terrible Goal on a Penalty Shot in the AHL



Campbell was having a pretty good game against the Calgary Wranglers while playing with the Bakersfield Condors of the AHL last night. During the early season struggles of the Oilers, Campbell, who is in year two of a five year contract worth $5 million per season, was placed on waivers and then was sent to the farm system to work on his game. There has been some improvement, but a goal allowed on a penalty shot showed Campbell is still have problems.

Defenceman-turned-winger Jonathan Aspirot tried a simple wrister on Campbell during the penalty shot. It went off the crossbar, and Campbell seemed to assume that was that. It was not. The puck hit the bar, bounced up and hit the glass, and then came back down hitting Campbell in the back while he then pushes it into the net with his own skates. An absolutely brutal outcome as Bakersfield would lose the game 2-1.


"Lmao this is the most Jack Campbell allowed goal i've ever seen."


Campbell has played 29 games for the Condors in 2023-24, and his numbers are decent. He carries a record of 16-12-0, with a .920 save percentage and a 2.58 goals against average. Of course, there's still that nagging fact that these are his numbers in the AHL. They would be fine for a goalie making his money in the NHL, but look much different while playing a lower level of hockey. Campbell's penalty shot gaffe caught the attention of TSN's Jay Onrait, who posted it to his account.

"This penalty shot on Jack Campbell 😳"


With the tandem of Stuart Skinner and Calvin Pickard playing much better for Edmonton since the coaching change earlier this season. it's doubtful Campbell will see NHL action again any time soon. Goals like this will only serve to decrease his chances of getting back to the big league.

Meanwhile, the Edmonton Oilers managed an overtime victory over the Montreal Canadiens last night, going up 2-0 after the first. However, Montreal scored twice in the third to force extra time. It was Leon Draisaitl with the eventual game winner on the powerplay, while Pickard stopped 23 of 25 shots for the win, and a save percentage of .920.
