Edmonton Oilers Recall Jack Campbell & Philip Broberg

The Edmonton Oilers currently have a 2-1 series lead over the Los Angeles Kings in the first round. They picked up a massive 6-1 win over the Kings in Game 3 and are now looking to build off of it in Game 4. 

Now, heading into Game 4, the Oilers have made two notable roster moves, as they have recalled goaltender Jack Campbell and defenseman Philip Broberg from the Bakersfield Condors of the AHL.

It is always a good idea for playoff teams to add to their depth, so it makes sense that the Oilers are bringing up Campbell and Broberg. They will now give the Oilers more insurance if injuries occur. 

Campbell, 32, appeared in five games for the Oilers this season, where he had a 1-4-0 record, a 4.50 GAA, and a .873 SV%. Due to his big-time struggles, the Oilers placed him on waivers, and he spent the rest of the season down in the AHL with the Condors. In 33 games with the AHL squad, he had a 2.63 GAA and a .918 SV%. 

As for Broberg, he played in 12 games this season with the Oilers, where he had two assists to go along with a minus-3 rating. In 49 games during this season with the Condors, the 22-year-old defenseman had five goals and 38 points.
