SPOKANE, Wash. — The Spokane Chiefs announced on Friday that 16-year-old goaltender Campbell Arnold has been released from their active roster. His reassignment is to be determined.
“We are very happy with Campbell’s development coming into this season,” said Chiefs general manager Scott Carter. “He has performed very well for us in the pre-season and we’re excited for his future. This move allows him the opportunity to play regular starting minutes and continue that development.”
Arnold was the Spokane’s second round (28th overall) pick in the 2017 WHL Bantam Draft and played 22 games with the Yale Academy Prep team of the CSSHL last season, posting a 3.34 GAA and .890 SV%. In two starts during the 2018 WHL pre-season, he made 51 saves on 56 shots faced (.911 SV%).
The move leaves the Chiefs with two goaltenders on their active roster in 19-year-olds Dawson Weatherill and Bailey Brkin. Weatherill recently returned from the Boston Bruins’ rookie camp. Arnold remains on the Chiefs’ protected list.
