BRIAN CAMPBELL ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT AFTER 17 YEAR NHL CAREER

July 17, 2017

Defenseman Brian Campbell announced his retirement after 17 seasons in the NHL on Monday.

Campbell, 38, had 17 points (five goals, 12 assists) in 80 games with the Chicago Blackhawks last season. He had signed a one-year contract with the Blackhawks on July 1, 2016 and was an unrestricted free agent.

The Blackhawks announced Campbell will join the front office, where he will assist with marketing, community relations and youth hockey initiatives.

Campbell had 504 points (87 goals, 417 assists) in 1,082 NHL games with the Buffalo Sabres, San Jose Sharks, Blackhawks and Florida Panthers. He was the Sabres' sixth-round pick (No. 156) in the 1997 NHL Draft.

He helped the Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup in 2010 and won the Lady Byng Trophy in 2012, when he had six penalty minutes in 82 games with the Panthers.

"I'm excited to transition into the next step in both my professional career and life," Campbell said. "I'm grateful to the countless number of teammates, coaches, team staff and fans that I have crossed paths with throughout my playing career in Chicago, Buffalo, Florida and San Jose. The Blackhawks organization has allowed me to take on this challenge and I'm thankful for this new opportunity."
