Brian Campbell is now the proud owner of a three game point streak.

Soupy isn't quite the scoring defender he used to be, but with 17 points in 48 games on the season, he's still able to put up respectable numbers in his advanced age.

Brian Campbell avoided serious injury despite being boarded by the Capitals' Tom Wilson Thursday night.

It was first thought that Campbell sustained a broken nose, but x-rays were negative. The veteran rearguard did have to be stitched up but returned to the game and practiced without incident on Friday. He will suit up Saturday against Boston. Keep Campbell active.

Brian Campbell finished off the Red Wings in overtime during Sunday's 2-1 win.

It was just Campbell's second goal of the season as he was the beneficiary of fantastic work by Jonathan Huberdeau to gain the zone, then a perfect pass from Jussi Jokinen to freeze Petr Mrazek. Campbell now has nine points in 23 games this season.

Brian Campbell has moved to a defense pairing with Erik Gudbranson.

"It's a different look and we'll see how it works out," said Campbell, who had been skating alongside Aaron Ekblad. "I'm definitely fine with whatever the coaches say to do. I've played with Gudbranson in the past here and there."

Brian Campbell generated a goal and two assists in Florida's 4-1 win versus Colorado on Tuesday.

He scored the first shorthanded marker of his NHL career to give the team a 4-0 lead late in the third period. Campbell has five points in nine contests this campaign and if he stays healthy then he should be able to hit the 30-point plateau.

The Florida Panthers let a 2-0 lead slip away against Dallas on Saturday night.

"The disappointing part is you can’t give teams like this life," defenseman Brian Campbell said. "We were rolling, up 2-0, and you want to keep them sleeping. But we kept turning pucks over, took some penalties. You want to put teams away, keep them quiet. We gave them opportunities to wake up."

Brian Campbell has played in 300 consecutive games.

Campbell, 35, has yet to miss a game since joining the Florida Panthers in 2011. His 300-game streak includes his final 10 regular season contests with the Chicago Blackhawks. "I just try to take care of myself on and off the ice," said Campbell. "I've been lucky in my career and have had other streaks. I think it takes a lot of preparation and sometimes you don't feel so good. I've played through injuries. I think it's a challenge and try and embrace it. I want to be out there every night. For me to take a night off, it's going to have to hurt pretty good."

Brian Campbell posted two assists in Florida's 3-2 win against Toronto on Tuesday.

His 15th helper of the year came on a power-play goal by Jussi Jokinen during the first period and his 16th set up Jimmy Hayes for what would turn out to be the game winner at the 13:48 mark of the second period.

Brian Campbell potted a goal in Sunday's 4-2 victory versus Edmonton.

He has two goals in as many games for the suddenly hot Panthers. Campbell now has three goals and 11 points in 40 matches this season. He still isn't worthy of a regular spot in your lineup, but keep an eye on him to see if his improved play continues.

Brian Campbell has been a huge disappointment this season.

Despite leading all Panther defensemen in power-play ice time, he has registered only one assist in his last 14 games and has mere eight points in 32 games this season. Campbell is clearly off to the worst start of a season in his career and there have been few if any signs he will be able to turn it around anytime soon.

Brian Campbell picked up two assists in Sunday's win over Anaheim.

He had secondary helpers on goals by Nick Bjugstad and Brad Boyes during the second period. Campbell scored his first goal of the season last Friday against the Islanders and he currently has six points in 15 games.

The Florida Panthers' power play is likely to improve by default next season.

Their collective PP shooting percentage was 7.6, which was considerably lower than even the second-worst mark (9.3 percent). It's highly likely that will improve even without personnel changes, especially if Brian Campbell (team-leading 12 PPPs) sticks around.

Brian Campbell reportedly would like the Florida Panthers to trade him.

Is there much of a market for Campbell though? He's certainly a valuable offensive defenseman and although he's 35 years old, he should still have some strong seasons ahead of him. However, he comes with a $7,142,875 annual cap hit through 2015-16 and that's likely to scare off teams that would otherwise be interested in the veteran puck-moving defenseman. The Panthers can make things easier by agreeing to retain part of his cap hit, but they might not be inclined to do so if they didn't want to move him in the first place.

Brian Campbell recorded his 30th assist of the season in a 3-2 loss on Saturday.

Campbell also had seven goals, giving him 37 points in 82 points in 2013-14. That's something of a disappointment by his standards, but it isn't surprising given how anemic the Panthers' offense was this season.
