Since being drafted by them 74th overall in 2008, Andrew Campbell has been a member of the Los Angeles Kings family since then. However, the defenseman spent the majority of that time playing in the AHL for the Manchester Monarche. There, the stay-at-home blueliner averaged just under 68 games played and just under 13 points per season. And in 2013-14, the Monarchs were so impressed with Campbell's leadership qualities, that they named him team captain. But the 26-year-old did finally get his shot with the Kings and unfortunately, it was a brief stay.
Despite being part of the organization since 2008, Andrew Campbell never played a regular season (or playoff) game for the big club before the 2013-14 campaign. But he was called up to Los Angeles this past season where he played in just three games.
During those few outings, Campbell, the native of Caledonia, Ontario, did not register a single point. Instead, he averaged 12:41 of ice time per game, took four shots, made three hits and blocked one shot. Following this year, the Kings announced that they were not re-signing Campbell. So, that was it. The defenseman's tenure with the Kings was much too short to analyze.
While he may not have been a fit with the Kings going forward, I do certainly hope that Andrew Campbell finds success somewhere as many teams could use a defenseman of his stay-at-home style.
