NA3HL Player Makes NHL Central Scouting Service List
Updated: Apr 14
NA3HL history was made today when St. Louis Jr. Blues forward Seamus Campbell was named as part of the 2020 mid-term draft rankings released by the NHL's Central Scouting Service. He becomes the the first active NA3HL player to make the NHL Central Scouting mid-terms.
The St. Louis, Mo., native is a 2002 birth year skater. In 35 games for St. Louis this season Campbell has scored nine goals and added 21 assists for 30 points.
Campbell was called up to Springfield of the NAHL on November 1 and scored a goal in his first game. He played again the next night before being sent back to St. Louis.
“Obviously we are thrilled to see Seamus get recognized by NHL Central Scouting for his potential,” said Jr. Blues head coach Chris Flaugher via NA3HL.com. “He’s a young player with a good skill-set that has a high upside.”
