Campbell was able to notch an assist in Saturday's 3-2 shootout loss to the Predators.
The assist gives him seven points (1G,6A) in the first 18 games of the season. After only putting two assists on the board in the month of October, he has had a solid month of November collecting one goal and four assists. Averaging 23:53 minutes of ice time per game ranks him 23rd in the NHL this season. Campbell will always produce the majority of his points on the power play which is good news for fantasy owners who are awarded extra points for special teams points. He is only owned in 17% of espn leagues, so if his play continues to improve don't be surprised to see him on someone else's roster instead of the waiver wire.

Campbell notched his first goal of the season, and it came on the power play in Friday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Islanders.
Although Campbell's goal was his first and only his fourth point of the season, he could be primed to break out anytime now. He played over 30 minutes in the loss Friday and a whopping six minutes on the power play. Because of the low point totals so far he might be available on the waiver wire and if not, he should be a perfect buy low candidate. Campbell is always around the 40 point mark every season and if he keeps playing the amount he has so far, expect the same type of output with a good chunk of those points coming from the power play.

The 35-year-old veteran has only recorded three assists after the first 12 games of the season.
Campbell only has one assist in the past 10 games and has a minus-5 rating over that span. Campbell is still leading the Panthers in time on ice with 23:35 per game, averaging 3:35 minutes on the power play this season. As long as he continues to see the bulk of the ice time for Florida, he should be considered a solid option and could easily put up some points sooner rather than later.

Campbell gathered an assist on Jonathan Huberdeau's third-period goal Thursday versus the Lightning.
The 35-year-old Campbell was paired up with No. 1 overall pick Aaron Ekblad in the opener, with the rookie earning credit for a secondary assist on the Huberdeau goal. Though the Panthers will look to Campbell to provide leadership for Ekblad as he transitions to the NHL, the veteran still brings plenty to the table as a fantasy option in his own right. He's set to quarterback the top power-play unit again this season and should again challenge for 40 points.

Brian Campbell reportedly would like the Florida Panthers to trade him.
Is there much of a market for Campbell though? He's certainly a valuable offensive defenseman and although he's 35 years old, he should still have some strong seasons ahead of him. However, he comes with a $7,142,875 annual cap hit through 2015-16 and that's likely to scare off teams that would otherwise be interested in the veteran puck-moving defenseman. The Panthers can make things easier by agreeing to retain part of his cap hit, but they might not be inclined to do so if they didn't want to move him in the first place.
