Brian Campbell Retires, Joins Blackhawks' Front Office

17 July 2017, 08:11 | Charlene Valdez

Campbell played 295 of his 1,082 career games in Chicago, and it was the only time he hoisted the Stanley Cup.

What are your memories of Brian Campbell's career!

"I'm excited to transition into the next step in both my professional career and life", Campbell said in a statement. After last season, Campbell wasn't sure which way that would be.

Campbell first joined the Blackhawks in 2009, skating out for three seasons before heading to the Florida Panthers in 2011.


"We'll see what happens", Campbell said after last season.

It was announced on Monday that defenseman Brian Campbell, who won his only Stanley Cup as a member of the Chicago Blackhawks, has formally retired from the National Hockey League and will join the Blackhawks in their front office. "After a brilliant career on the ice, Brian will remain an important part of our franchise".

Campbell noted after the 2016-17 campaign that he'd either return to the Blackhawks or hang it up, so his departure isn't exactly surprising, but it still makes for notable news after a 1,082-game career that included 504 points and a Stanley Cup win between four teams. He was drafted by the Buffalo Sabres in the sixth round in 1997 and played for the Sabres, Blackhawks, Florida Panthers and San Jose Sharks. He was traded to San Jose at the deadline in 2008 and then signed as a free agent with Chicago that offseason, becoming one of the building blocks around young stars Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane.
