Jack Campbell didn’t last long in the Edmonton Oilers’ dressing room, as his catastrophic performances pushed him into the AHL after the other 31 NHL teams ignored him.

After just five games, in which he posted a staggering 4.50 GAA and an atrocious 0.873% efficiency rate, he found himself with the Bakersfield Condors.

There, he played the role of number-one netminder, but once again, he was tased by repeated shitty performances (3.46 average and 0.888% efficiency rate). Quebec prospect Olivier Rodrigue now occupies the position he coveted, and let’s face it, the stats speak for him.

The 62nd overall pick in the 2018 draft was on hand for his team’s final duel on December 20. In the process, he collected his 3rd win of the season, making no fewer than 38 saves.

Rodrigue will be back in the blue paint for tonight’s duel against the Tucson Roadrunners.

However, it was after the December 16 game, when he came on in relief of Campbell, that Condors head coach Colin Chaulk seems to have given him the net officially (as number 1). Campbell gave up four goals on 17 shots against the Coachell Valley Firebirds. Chaulk was apparently furious! C’

I think it’s also worth mentioning that the Condors’ goalkeeping coach, Sylvain Rodrique, is the 23-year-old’s father (Olivier Rodrique).

In short, with this new data, Campbell’s value takes another slap in the face, especially since his salary of $5 million annually (until 2027) is by no means attractive.
