Hockey Writers reveals its 5 most disappointing players

The Hockey Writers are renowned columnists in the hockey world and earlier today they've just revealed the list of their most disappointing player performances of the current campaign.

It's really no surprise that the Oilers' netminder Jack Campbell tops that list. He's been disastrous since the campaign's debut after he inked a $25M deal for the next 5 years. In 15 games, he shows a 4.03 GAA and a 0.876 SV%. 58 goalies have played over 10 games since the season started and he stands over 50 in every stat compiled amongst them.

The Canucks come into play at the 3rd rank where we notice their injured netminder Thatcher Demko. The Canucks defensive play may be one of the reasons he stands on that list, though since the season's started he's failed to bail them out like he's done in the past.

Demko was competing for a spot at the 2022 Olympic Games before the NHL pulled its players from the competition and if we were having that conversation again today, it'd be nowhere near it. The netminder is currently out with a lower-body injury, he is expected to be back somewhere in February let's hope this recovery period will help him find his groove back.

The columnist at the Hockey Writers also listed the Flames' most recent acquisition Jonathan Huberdeau as one of the players underperforming. Ryan McDonagh and John Klingberg were the two players completing their top5.
