Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Jim Campbell
A career still in the developmental stages, Campbell has done everything right toward becoming a solid NHLer. He started playing junior hockey in Quebec, even though he was raised in the U.S., a sign of his commitment to making a go of a pro life in the game.

He represented his country at both the World Junior Championships (bronze and fourth place in 1992 and 1993) and the Olympics (eighth place at Lillehammer in 1994), and after being drafted by Montreal played in the Habs minor-league system for two years. Before being traded to Anaheim for Robert Dirk in January 1996.

The Ducks didn't give him much of a shot, so when he had the chance to sign as a free agent with St. Louis he took it. The Blues gave him a starting role, and Campbell responded with consecutive 20-plus goal seasons. Soon, though, he became a fringe player again and he has spent much of the last two years in the minors.

Following stints with Montreal, Chicago and Florida, Campbell, who was also toiling in the AHL joined the Tampa Bay Lightning organization in the summer of 2005.

Aside from his World Junior experience, Campbell is a two-time member of the United States World Championship team (1997 and 2001).
