Greg Campbell turned heads during his NCAA rookie campaign for all the right reasons.

A top-four defender right off the bat, Campbell finished sixth in the NCAA among ECAC Hockey rookie defensemen with eight points following the 2015-2016 season. For a freshman, it showed that Campbell had what it takes to play with some of the greatest players outside of professional hockey and proved to scouts that he can produce in a league that has a strong emphasis on defense.

His best stretch of the month came at the tail end of just his first month of action on October 31st, where he began a five-game point streak with five assists in that time. A strong offensive leader with his former junior club, the Oakville Blades, Campbell was third in rookie scoring on Union after earning Oakvilleā€™s MVP award the previous year.

Campbell started off his sophomore campaign with an even better start, recording his first two-point performance against Yale on November 4th and is on pace for around ten points, despite missing time with a knee injury.
