The Spokane Chiefs announced 2002-born goaltender Campbell Arnold has signed a Western Hockey League Standard Player Agreement. Arnold was the Chiefs’ second round pick (28th overall) in the 2017 WHL Bantam Draft.
“We were very excited to select Campbell in the bantam draft this summer and he continued to impress at training camp last month,” said Chiefs’ General Manager Scott Carter via press release. “He is a very promising, talented young goaltender and an exceptional young man. We’re thrilled that he has signed and officially joined the Chiefs organization.”
Arnold is a 5-foot-10, 165-pound goalie from Nanaimo, B.C. Last year, he posted a 4.40 goals against average and .877 save percentage in 17 games played with Shawnigan Lake School Bantam Prep of the CSSHL. He recorded three shutouts and faced over 50 shots six different times, including an 80-save performance on 84 shots faced.
“I just really believe Spokane is the place for me,” said Arnold. “The fans are amazing, coaching staff was incredible, the guys were awesome… everyone cared. It felt like a home away from home (at training camp).”
