The Edmonton Oilers decided to buy out the final three seasons of goaltender Jack Campbell's contract, a move saving money now but potentially costly later.

Campbell had a difficult stretch with the Oilers, so his departure wasn't surprising. However, he landed a new contract with the Detroit Red Wings, signing a one-year deal worth $775,000. The move puzzled Red Wings fans, but it adds depth and carries low risk.
This contract is likely Campbell's last shot at an NHL comeback. The Red Wings' goaltending depth includes Alex Lyon, Ville Husso, and newly-signed Cam Talbot, all ahead of Campbell. He will likely start in the AHL with the Grand Rapids Griffins, using it as a showcase for other teams.
While it's improbable that Campbell will play an NHL game this season, his AHL performance could attract interest from teams needing goaltending help. If he impresses, he might get another NHL chance.
