Gregory "Greg" James Campbell (born December 17, 1983) is a Canadian ice hockey left winger who currently plays for the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League. He is the son of former NHL player and former NHL Director of Hockey Operations Colin Campbell.
Playing career[edit | edit source]
Born in London, Ontario, Campbell grew up in nearby Tillsonburg playing the majority of his minor hockey with the Tillsonburg Tornados BB teams of the OMHA Southern Counties League and the AAA Elgin-Middlesex Chiefs of the Alliance Pavilion League until Minor Bantam.
He was drafted by the Plymouth Whalers in the 6th round (102nd overall) in the 1999 OHL Bantam Supplemental Draft after playing the 1998-99 season with the Aylmer Aces Jr.B. club.
Campbell was drafted 67th overall by the Panthers in the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. He played two NHL games in 2003–04, but did not register a point in those contests. He scored his first goal in 2005-06, in a 4–3 loss to the Montreal Canadiens, against goaltender Yann Danis. On June 22, 2010 he was traded by the Panthers along with Nathan Horton to the Boston Bruins in exchange for Dennis Wideman and a first round draft pick (15th overall) in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft and a third round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.
Campbell played a large role in the Bruins 2011 Stanley Cup win. He and linemate Daniel Paille were mainstays on penalty kills, helping to hold the high powered Canucks to only 2 power play goals.
