Chris Campoli's brief tenure with the Chicago Blackhawks has come to an end.
Campoli was scheduled for an arbitration hearing on August 3, but the Blackhawks were not prepared to pay the arbitration award. As a result, the hearing was moved up to Wednesday with the two sides agreeing to a $2.5 million settlement. The Blackhawks walked away from the decision, making Campoli an unrestricted free agent.
Campoli scored one goal and six assists in 19 games with the Blackhawks last season. The Hawks acquired him from the Ottawa Senators at the trade deadline for forward Ryan Potulny and a conditional second-round draft pick.
Between the Senators and Blackhawks last season, Campoli potted four goals and 17 assists in 77 games. He has scored 33 goals and 102 assists in 397 career games with the Senators, Blackhawks and Islanders.
