Ed Campbell just told me he intends to sign with Danbury this week. Danbury is two hours from his South Boston home, and his wife Shannon, whom he married this summer, has a job and would not be able to travel to Fort Wayne with him. She's from Portage, Mich.
"If she was in Kalamazoo, I'd be in Fort Wayne in a heartbeat,'' he said. "The Frankes were great about it and told me they'd fly her out every couple of weeks, but this way I can come home after practices and games and stuff.''
Campbell said proximity was the only issue with deciding to play with the Trashers.
"When you get married, you make a commitment, and I've been away from her pretty much for the last two years,'' he said. "I would have loved to come there and play. My time there was awesome, second to none.''
Campbell said he also talked with Motor City, Muskegon and Kalamazoo.
