Get To Know The Florida Panthers, The New York Islanders First-Round Opponents

Brian Campbell

Campbell, 36, has a slew of experience and a knack for coming up clutch in pivotal situations. A former Cup winner himself, he lead the league’s defensemen in +/- and was a formidable threat when paired with Aaron Ekblad, Gudbranson and Petrovic this season.

Besides for being a mentor in the playoff process to these young guys, he’s also revitalizing himself in the offensive zone. The way to exploit him is simpler than not: knock him off the puck. Throughout his entire career, Campbell has been prone to turnovers as his stickhandling ability has never really been a strength of his.

It should be noted, however, that Campbell anchors their power play, is confident and fluid with the puck, owns outstanding mobility and has plenty of creativity and intelligence.
