The National Hockey League auditions for goaltender Jack Campbell and defenseman Jamie Oleksiak has come to an end.

The Dallas Stars sent both to their respective Ontario Hockey League clubs Friday.

Campbell, the Stars’ first pick, 11th overall in 2010 will return for a second season with the Windsor Spitfires. The Port Huron, MI. native had an inconsistent first year in major junior, posting a 24-14-4 record with a 3.80 goals against average and .886 save percentage.

It will be Oleksiak’s first year of major junior. The former Northeastern standout left college to join the Saginaw Spirit. He was Dallas’ top pick, 14th overall in last June’s draft and is a candidate to represent Canada at the 2012 World Junior Championship.
