The Nanaimo Clippers of the BCHL are excited to announce the acquisition of Aidan Campbell (’02) from the Erie Otters (OHL) for the 2022-2023 season.
Aidan comes to the Clippers having spent the last three seasons with the Otters. In the 5 games he played in the 2021-2022 season Aidan had a 3.29 GAA and a .873 save percentage.
The 6’6”, 190 lb., Aidan comes from Cranberry Township, PA, USA, and holds dual Canadian/US citizenship.
GM/HC Colin Birkas says of Aiden “Campbell is a big strong goalie with pedigree. Since my time here we have had strong starting goaltending from guys like Jordan Naylor and Cooper Black and I feel this is the right guy to continue that for us.”
Aiden won a u16 National Title with Pittsburgh Penguins before playing games with the USA U17 team, from there he went on to play in the OHL with the Erie Otters. Aiden is a big goalie who plays a smart pro-like game.
