Believe it or not, the NHL's executive vice president and director of hockey operations once played the game under a simpler moniker-plugger. He played junior in Peterborough under head coach Roger Neilson but went to the WHA initially before joining the Penguins in the NHL. In all, he dressed for five teams, accumulating more than 100 penalty minutes almost every season he played.

"Colin is afraid of no one," coach Glen Sather said of his new charge when he arrived in Edmonton. True enough, Campbell fought for the team, hit, checked, disturbed, and harassed his way to a regular job for more than a decade. His coach at one time in Vancouver, Harry Neale, saw him as a potential bench boss himself.

In 1985, Neale now in Detroit and Campbell not getting any younger, the player retired to become Neale's assistant. He moved on to the Rangers in 1990 in the same capacity, winning a Cup on Broadway under head man Mike Keenan. That summer, when Keenan bolted to St. Louis, Campbell became New York's head coach, a position he held for four years. In 1998, he was fired after the team failed to make the playoffs, but the NHL hired him to adjudicate nefarious on-ice actions by players. Under his reign so far, Campbell has handed out increasingly lengthy suspensions, culminating with a one-year ban for Marty McSorley, the longest such suspension in league history.
