Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Gregory Campbell
Gregory Campbell was born December 17, 1983 in London, Ontario. The fourth choice, 67th overall selection of the Florida Panthers in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, Campbell is a graduate of the OHL.

After two seasons with the Plymouth Whalers, Campbell joined the Kitchener Rangers in 2002-03 and was instrumental in leading Kitchener to the 2003 Memorial Cup title. The leading scorer, Most Sportsmanlike Player and All-Tournament Team member, Campbell was also a key player in Canadas Silver Medal performance at the 2003 World Junior Championships in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

In the fall of 2003 Campbell made his professional debut with the Panthers AHL affiliate in San Antonio and subsequently made his NHL debut with Florida, seeing action in two games with the parent club.

On June 22, 2010, Campbell was shipped to the Boston Bruins along with Nathan Horton in exchange for defenseman Dennis Wideman and two draft picks. The move turned out to be a fortuitous one for Campbell as the Bruins would go on to win the Stanley Cup only months later.

After surviving a first round scare from the Montreal Canadiens, the Bruins steamrolled over the Philadelphia Flyers and endured a seven game battle with the Tampa Bay Lightning en route to the Stanley Cup Final where they would take on the powerful Vancouver Canucks.

The Bruins would defeat the Canucks in a classic seven game series, with Campbell contributing steady, gritty play.

After five successful seasons in Boston, Campbell left as an unrestricted free agent and signed a two year contract with the Columbus Blue Jackets.
