Brian Campbell announces his retirement from the NHL Steve and Brian Campbell

Brian Campbell has chosen the latter of the two options, and has retired to take a job in the front office of the Chicago Blackhawks. He played for the Blackhawks from 2008-'11 and again last season.

"I'm excited to transition into the next step in both my professional career and life", Campbell said in a statement. He'd stay in Florida until this past fall, when he re-joined the Blackhawks for one final season before hanging up his skates for good. "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".

"We are excited that Brian will continue to be a part of the organization", said Blackhawks President & CEO John McDonough in a statement released by the team on Monday. He played last season on a one-year, $1.5 million deal and averaged 18:26 of ice time in 80 games.

Vanno presi 3-4 calciatori anche se non tutti campionissimi, ci deve essere un'evoluzione della rosa che va modificata. Certo, la differenza con il Milan è che l'Inter al contrario dei cugini non ha necessità di rifondare la squadra.

He began his career as a sixth-round draft pick of the Buffalo Sabres and went to play 1,082 National Hockey League games with the Sabres, Florida Panthers, San Jose Sharks and Blackhawks.

Campbell will join the Blackhawks' business operations department, the team announced.

The Blackhawks signed Campbell to a $57.14 million USA, eight-year contract in 2008, and he played nearly 20 minutes a game during their Cup run before a salary-cap crunch led to a trade to the Florida Panthers in 2011.
