Toronto Maple Leafs netminder Jack Campbell says the best is yet to come as he prepares to play in his first All-Star game on Saturday in Vegas.
Campbell has helped the Leafs to a 29-10-3 record which ranks third in the Atlantic Division and has made them 8/1 to win the Stanley Cup in 2021/22, with all the action on the Sports Live Streaming hub.
A full 21 of Toronto's wins have been registered by the 30-year-old, who has a .925 save-percentage and 2.30 goals-against-average (GAA) in 31 starts this season.
Being named an All-Star is quite the achievement for Campbell, whose 11 season NHL career has generally been spent as a bit-part player.
In a third year with the Leafs, he took advantage of an injury to Frederik Andersen last season to prove himself as a trusted number-one, recording 17 wins in 22 starts and a .921 save-percentage and 2.15 GAA.
His impressive form carried into the playoffs where he played all seven of Toronto's games with a .934 save-percentage and a 1.81 GAA. Undeservedly for Campbell, the Leafs' offence stuttered as they let slip a 3-1 series lead to bow out to the Montreal Canadiens.
His 32 appearances this season is a career-high and the most since 2018/19 when he played 31 times (25 starts) for the Los Angeles Kings.
Campbell said to the media: "This is not the pinnacle of my journey, it's just the start. I've worked hard to get to this point, and I'm honoured to represent the Toronto Maple Leafs.
"But there is so much ahead of me, so much I want to accomplish. I think the best is yet to come. But nothing comes easy."
