Oilers Make Big Decision With Jack Campbell

Huge news out of Edmonton, as the Oilers have placed goaltender Jack Campbell on waivers.

This waiver placement is not particularly surprising, as Campbell has had a dumpster fire of a season so far in 2023-24. In five appearances with the Oilers this campaign, he has a 1-4-0 record to go along with a 4.50 goals-against average (GAA) and a .873 save percentage (SV%). In his last appearance against the Nashville Predators on Nov. 4, he allowed five goals on only 34 shots. 

Campbell was signed with the expectation of being the Oilers' long-term starting goalie after his impressive tenure with the Toronto Maple Leafs. However, he struggled mightily since becoming an Oiler, and this is the newest low for him. 

Given the fact that Campbell's play has been poor and he has a $5 million cap hit until the end of the 2026-27 season, it is fair to say that he won't be claimed. 

Also joining Campbell on waivers is Calgary Flames forward Dryden Hunt.
