Chris Campoli (born July 9, 1984 in North York, Ontario) is a Canadian professional ice hockey defenceman who is a member of the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL). Campoli was a 7th round selection, 227th overall by the Islanders in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.


Playing career


Junior career

Chris played minor hockey in the Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL) for the Mississauga Senators. Campoli then spent 4 years playing major junior hockey in the Ontario Hockey League for the Erie Otters, from the 2000–01 season, through the 2003–04 season. Chris was made captain of the Otters during his final season, as he had become known throughout the community for leadership. He volunteered his time at the Erie Unit of the Shriners Hospital for Children, playing card and board games with the children, and assisting staff by taking height and weights of the patients. Having made himself very involved with charity work in and around the city of Erie, PA, which was home to the Otters, Campoli earned Humanitarian of the Year awards on several occasions.

Chris Campoli attended John Cabot Catholic Secondary School for 2 years before leaving to play for the Erie Otters.

NHL career

Campoli appeared in 80 games with the Islanders in the 2005–06 season, recording nine goals and twenty five assists. Campoli scored his first goal in his first game on his first shot when he beat Buffalo Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller on a rebound to tie the game at one at the 6:40 mark of the first period.

A groin injury towards the end of training camp, coupled with a new Islander coaching staff delayed Campoli's 2006–07 season debut. Following the trade of Alexei Zhitnik, Campoli was recalled from the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League (AHL). On July 16, 2007, Campoli was signed to a 3 year extension by the New York Islanders. On November 3 2008, Campoli became the first player to score in overtime twice in a game against the Columbus Blue Jackets when he fired an initial shot past Fredrick Norrena that went through the netting, but was not seen by the refs, then circled around, took another pass and scored again.

On February 20, 2009, Campoli was traded by the Islanders, along with Mike Comrie, to the Ottawa Senators for Dean McAmmond and a first round draft pick in 2009.[1]
