Hockey has taken Hugh Campbell from his native Cape Breton, Nova Scotia all the way to New Haven, Washington D.C. as well as Philadelphia. His fondest memories are centred around his years spent playing in Halifax. He was a member of the famed Halifax Saint Marys junior team during the late 1940’s when they were the hottest item in provincial hockey.

Campbell later performed with the renowned Halifax Atlantics, a powerhouse in the Maritime Major Hockey League. He toiled briefly in professional hockey ranks as a member of the New York Rangers organization. He was both a player and a coach with the Glace Bay Miners, Charlottetown Islanders, and Moncton of the New Brunswick Senior League in the mid-1950’s.

Campbell left the Maritimes to join the Washington Capitals of the US Professional League and rounded out his career with a three-year stay with the Philadelphia Ramblers of the same league. Hugh Campbell retired in 1959 and was elected to the Nova Scotia Sport Hall of Fame in 1989.
