Campbell spent the 2018-19 season split between with the Summerside Western Capitals of the Maritime Junior Hockey League and the Mississauga Rebels Midget AAA.
"It is an honour to be part of this great organization," said Campbell. "This is a big opportunity for me and I would like to thank my teammates and the staff for being so welcoming."
