Texas Stars Hockey @TexasStars
Jack Campbell named #txstars winner of the IOA/American Specialty AHL Man of the Year award:
This made me tear up a bit:
Campbell is a strong supporter of military service members and veterans, and frequently visits with military families before and after games. Among them was a family whose father was about to deploy. The son was upset about his father leaving, so Campbell went back to the locker room and gave the boy his personal lucky charm: Campbell's "draft day" hat, given to him by the Dallas Stars on the day he was drafted by the organization.
Guys like Campbell are the reason I became a huge fan of hockey. Stu Barnes reached out to my family when someone told him about my father's battle with cancer and ultimately when he passed away in 2007. His random act of kindness was amazing for my brother and I. We were decent fans at that point ... handful of games a year, but to personally experience that act of kindness was unbelievable. Jack Campbell is one hell of a dude and so is Stu Barnes.
Just like 100 Degree Hockey mentioned, the whole press release is worth reading.
