Saad, 22, won the Stanley Cup twice with the Chicago Blackhawks, including last season, before being traded to Columbus as part of a seven-player transaction June 30. Campbell, 31, signed as a free agent July 1; he was a champion with the Boston Bruins in 2011 and lost to Chicago in the 2013 Stanley Cup Final.
But in order for them to hoist the Cup again, they must first help the Blue Jackets reach the postseason, something Columbus has done twice in 14 seasons, most recently in 2013-14.
"It's an up-and-coming team with a lot of excitement," Saad said Wednesday. "You see when healthy how dominant they were toward the end of the season. They want to win around here. I know that attitude. I love being around it."
