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.
Campbell scored an unassisted goal and played a season-high 21:51 during Monday's loss to the Flames.
Leading into Monday's game, Campbell was averaging just 16:54 per night through the first six outings of the season. However, Gustav Forsling was forced from the game with an undisclosed injury on Monday, so that had more to do with Campbell's uptick in ice time than anything. And while the limited minutes are concerning, the veteran defenseman is contributing offensively with a goal and four assists through seven games. Still, he shouldn't be viewed as a must-have fantasy asset and is likely best left to deeper formats.
Campbell dished up three assists in Saturday's shootout win over Toronto.
Soupy may be 37, but he can still split seams with his passes and reap the benefits. Check your wire -- Campbell may do better this year than his 31 points of 2015-16.
Although previous reports indicated Campbell would likely be a healthy scratch for Friday's game against Columbus, the 37-year-old will be in the lineup for the evening's contest, Tracey Myers of CSN Chicago reports.
Campbell's owners can breathe a sigh of relief, as the veteran blueliner will not only be in the lineup for the matchup with the Blue Jackets, but will also be playing on his natural left-hand side after skating on the right side for the first four games of the season. Campbell's move to the left side of the ice could lead to a spark in his offensive production, so owners who were contemplating dropping Soupy may want to consider taking a wait-and-see approach.
Campbell is expected to be a healthy scratch for Friday's game against Columbus, Brian Hedger of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
This is a bit of a surprising development, as Campbell has been lauded as the Blackhawks' most important offseason pickup, but head coach Joel Quenneville apparently wants to get Trevor van Riemsdyk back in the lineup Friday, and isn't willing to sit promising rookie defenseman Gustav Forsling to do so. Campbell could return to action as soon as Saturday against Toronto, but fantasy owners that selected him in the later rounds of their drafts may want to consider taking a look at the waiver wire for blueliners with higher upside.
Campbell rejoined the Blackhawks by agreeing to a one-year contract Friday, Chris Kuc of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Campbell originally put pen to paper on an eight-year deal with the Blackhawks valued at $7.1 million annually, which carried over to the Panthers in a straight-up trade for Rostislav Olesz in June of 2011. It's not clear at this point how much Campbell will earn under the new deal, but bringing the talented defender back to the Windy City on a short-term deal seems reasonable. The 37-year-old won a Stanley Cup with Chicago as part of the 2009-10 season, and earned the Lady Byng Memorial Trophy a season later for his sportsmanship. Campbell can still get it done for fantasy owners, as evidenced by his 31-point effort with the Panthers last season. Better yet, he hasn't missed a regular-season contest in three years.
Campbell is hoping to return to the Panthers next season, Tim Reynolds of the Associated Press reports.
Campbell, who will be an unrestricted free agent this summer, just finished out an eight-year deal for which he earned $7.14 million annually. He managed just one assist for his only point in the playoffs, but Campell led all Cats with a plus-31 rating in the regular season. He was a key reason why the Panthers boasted the seventh-best defense in the league in 2015-16, and it would make sense for the Panthers to retain his services if the price is right.
Campbell racked up a goal, an assist and a plus-4 rating Tuesday in a 7-4 win over Buffalo.
That's now eight points in the last nine games for Campbell, a marked departure from his previously worse-than-mediocre work over the past year and a half. It's hard to say that this will continue, but he's definitely benefiting from the Panthers' team-wide improvement. And it's nice for him to have a big night at the expense of the Sabres; they drafted Campbell 19 years ago and he spent parts of eight seasons in a Buffalo sweater.
Campbell racked up two helpers -- both on the power play -- in Tuesday's 5-1 win over Toronto.
The good times keep rolling for Campbell, who is now riding a four-game point streak. The 36-year-old defenseman has an impressive plus-16 rating and is on pace for the eighth 30-point season of his NHL career, so it wouldn't hurt to pick him up while he's hot.
Campbell scored his third goal of the season in 24:12 of ice time in Friday's win over Chicago.
That's points in back-to-back games for Campbell, who was named second star of the game Friday. The 36-year-old is having a quiet year offensively with just 16 points in 47 games, but he's playing a huge role for the Panthers, averaging 21:38 of ice time and sporting a plus-14 rating. The puck-moving blueliner remains a decent offensive contributor, but at age 36, his 50-point days are likely over.
Campbell tallied an assist while logging 26:31 of ice time in Monday's defeat to Edmonton.
At 36-years-old, Campbell is still producing at a high level and logging plenty of ice time. While he's down almost two minutes per game from last season, he's still capable of logging nearly a half-hour when called upon. He has two goals and 15 points this season including five assists on the power play and a shorthanded goal.
Campbell scored the game-winning goal in overtime Sunday against the Red Wings.
Campbell doesn't get on the scoresheet often, and had been held without a point in his last five games coming into Sunday, but the goal was a big one to help deliver the Panthers the win. The 36-year-old has been a 50-point producer in the past, but with just nine points thus far (two goals, seven assists), he's unlikely to replicate those sorts of numbers.
Campbell scored a goal and two assists in Tuesday's victory over the Avs.
The 36-year-old has been a strong point producer from the blue line in the past including scoring 53 points in 2011-12 and has been one of the rare veterans on the youthful Panthers. After scoring 27 points last season, Campbell likely isn't a consistent enough scorer to be a fantasy option except in the deepest leagues.
Campbell tallied an assist, picked up two penalty minutes, posted a plus-1 rating and took two shots on goal in Tuesday's victory over the Hurricanes.
Campbell has a pair of assists on the season and a plus-2 rating, but has still shown a penchant for making poor decisions in the Panthers' zone. After logging more than 20 minutes of ice time in the opener, he played in only 15:25 on Tuesday. The 36-year-old will need to be dependable for the Panthers if they want to make the playoffs and any offensive contribution he can make will only help.
Campbell picked up an assist and four penalty minutes in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Bruins.
Campbell was awarded an assist on the power play in Sunday's 4-2 victory over the Senators.
