Bryan Campbell (born March 27, 1944 in Sudbury, Ontario) is a retired professional ice hockey forward who played 260 games in the National Hockey League and 433 games in the World Hockey Association. He played for the Los Angeles Kings, Chicago Black Hawks, Vancouver Blazers, Cincinnati Stingers, Indianapolis Racers, and Edmonton Oilers.

He played junior hockey with the Hamilton Red Wings, winning the Memorial Cup in 1962. He played one season with the junior Edmonton Oil Kings in 1963-64, playiong in the 1963-64 Memorial Cup Final.

Neither the Detroit Red Wings (who owned his junior rights) or the New York Rangers (who claimed him from the Wings in 1966) ever gave him much of a chance. He finally played in the NHL with the Los Angeles Kings after they claimed him in the 1967 NHL Expansion Draft.

However, the Kings mostly left him in the minors, until they traded him to the Chicago Blackhawks in 1970. He had a career year in 1970-71 with the Hawks, scoring 54 points in 78 games. But his production fell to 18 points in 1971-72.

Campbell jumped to the Philadelphia Blazers of the World Hockey Association (WHA) in 1972. He hit his stride in that league, with four consecutive 20+ goals seasons. In six seasons he played in 433 games and scored 123 goals and 253 points.

In the NHL Campbell played in 260 games and scored 35 goals and 71 assists.
