The OJHL announced today that Wellington Dukes forward Craig Campbell (photo credit - Shawn Muir/OJHL Images) has been named the Gongshow Gear North-East Conference Player-of-the-Month for November after leading the conference in scoring throughout the month with 11 goals and 20 points in 12 games played.

The Dukes leading scorer with 38 points in 31 games played, Campbell recorded points in eight of the club’s twelve games during the month, including a six game goal and point scoring streak in which he notched nine goals and eighteen points.  He would record two five point efforts and multiple points in five consecutive games during the streak.  Currently tied for third in OJHL goal scoring with 21 goals, Campbell’s month also included two game-winners and seven power play points.

“It’s an honour to be named North-East Player-of-the-Month for November,” said Campbell.  “I would like to thank my teammates for all their work so far this year and to Gongshow Gear for their support of the OJHL.”

Dukes General Manager and Head Coach Marty Abrams acknowledged his star’s accomplishments thus far this season, “Craig has been a leader for us since the start of camp.  I can't say enough about his leadership and day-to-day work ethic.  His offensive ability has enabled us to be in the thick of things in the North-East Conference.”

Dean Klomp of the Lindsay Muskies was runner-up to Campbell as the OJHL North-East Conference Player-of-the-Month.  Klomp recorded nine goals and thirteen points in 10 games played, notching points in nine of the Muskies ten games during the month.
