The career of Brown Bears defenseman Ben Campbell has been marked by two ironies that worked out in the end.
Both can be tied to his high school career at Duluth Denfeld in Minnesota.
Campbell, son of Scott and Celine Campbell, had the childhood that one might expect of somebody coming of age in hockey-mad Minnesota.
His first Christmas present was a pair of Velcro hockey skates, and he remembers growing up at rinks watching his older brother, Tyler, play.
“Since birth, I’ve had a passion for the game,” Campbell said.
