Older brother of Jim, Tony also was drafted low, 194th overall by Washington in 1980 during his time with Brandon in the WHL. Camazzola was called up to the Capitals for three games in 1981-82 and these turned out to be the only games he ever played in the NHL. He later played in the AHL before establishing himself in the IHL until retiring in 1990.
Throughout his career Camazzola was known as a tough and rugged defenceman, although he did score 21 goals from the blueline with Fort Wayne in 1986-87. He averaged well over 100 penalty minutes a season, but unlike his brother he never pursued a career in Europe.
