Campbell announced he will retire from the NHL on Monday following his 17-year career. When Campbell was scratched for two games last year, it was the first time he had failed to play in every regular-season contest since the 2010-11 campaign. The blueliner saw a significant drop in production -- just 17 points -- in what was his final season. For his career, the sixth-round pick from the 1997 NHL Draft saw action in 1,082 NHL games, racking up 87 goals and 417 helpers.
Campbell scored the game-winning goal in a 5-3 victory over the Predators on Saturday. Although this was his first goal since Jan. 10, the 37-year-old is one score shy of matching last season's total. He also has 16 points and a plus-21 rating. Campbell has never been better in the plus-minus category, as he is a plus-52 player since the start of 2015. His 2016-17 campaign also includes four power-play points, 64 shots and 22 penalty minutes.
Campbell had an assist in 18:02 of ice time in Saturday's win over the Oilers. It was the first point in eight games for Campbell, who has put up 14 points in 55 games this season. The veteran logs decent minutes and plays on the second power-play unit, but he's on the decline and is overshadowed by the likes of Brent Seabrook and Duncan Keith in Chicago. Campbell remains a decent play in some deeper formats, but he's too inconsistent to be trusted in most fantasy leagues.
Campbell scored his third goal of the season in a 6-4 victory over the Blues on Saturday. He was once a 50 or 60 point defenseman, but at 37, Campbell can't be counted upon for much production anymore. This was his first goal in 18 games and just his second point in 14 contests. It also doesn't help that his minutes are as low as they have been in a decade. Last season, he had six goals and 31 points, and there's little to suggest Campbell will be able to beat that in 2016-17.
Campbell scored a first-period goal on the power-play during Friday's loss to the Capitals. While it was Campbell's second goal and seventh point of the season, he's offered little in the peripheral categories outside of his plus-6 rating. The 37-year-old veteran has just 15 shots, 13 blocked shots and 12 hits through 15 games. He may be able to maintain most of his offensive production going forward, but he offers very little fantasy value if the scoring dries up.
