Niagara, ON – Niagara IceDogs General Manager Joey Burke has announced that Ryan Campbell has committed to the team, signing an Ontario Hockey League Standard Player Agreement. Campbell was a 6th round pick (116th overall) in the 2017 OHL Priority Selection.
The 18 year old centre from Plattsville, Ontario, played the 2018-19 season with the Greater Ontario Junior Hockey League’s Kitchener Dutchmen.
