Hockey Ties Unite Mahtomedi's Campbell Family

Jeff Campbell's love of game transcended generations

by Devin Lowe /

Stubborn. Determined. Relentlessly passionate about the game of hockey.

That's how Joe Campbell remembers his brother, Jeff. They grew up together in the 1970s in the sleepy, quiet town of Willernie, Minnesota, an enclave inside Mahtomedi. When they were kids, they'd build things with their older brother, Jack Jr., cars made of wood scraps and whatever else they could find around the house.

In the winter, they'd make the two-block walk to the ice rink near their house, skates on their backs and snow in their eyes.

Wild Locker Room Full of Frozen Friendships

Strong relationships emerge on, off ice

by Dan Myers @1DanMyers /

This article appears in the January Issue of Wild Magazine.

Hockey players are a unique breed, many of which, move away from home at a young age to play at the highest levels offered for their age groups. Some may leave their country and play in junior leagues or in college. Others stay close to home to hone their skills.
