Scott Campbell (born June 22, 1957 in Toronto, Ontario) is a former ice hockey defenceman who was drafted first overall by the Houston Aeros of the World Hockey Association in the 1977 WHA Amateur Draft.

Playing career

After a stellar junior career with the London Knights, Campbell was also selected in the first round by the St. Louis Blues of the NHL but opted to join the WHA. He played 149 WHA games for the Aeros and the Winnipeg Jets, and shifted to the NHL when the Jets joined that league in 1980. He (along with Morris Lukowich) was one of two players protected by the Jets from the dispersal draft, showing the faith the team had in his abilities. However, the cold weather in Winnipeg exacerbated a chronic asthma condition and he requested a trade after a season in Winnipeg. The asthma condition ultimately forced him into retirement at the age of 25 after briefly also playing for the St. Louis Blues. After retiring, he became involved in harness racing and found success as a stable owner.
