History

The Campbell Trophy was donated by the NHL's clubs in recognition of the contributions and services of its President at the start of the Modern Era expansion. Throughout its history it has been a parallel to the Prince of Wales Trophy, using the same criteria in the opposite competitive grouping. From its inception in the 1967-68 season through to 1973-74 it was awarded to the first-place finisher in the West Division during the regular season. With NHL realignment in 1974-75, it was given to the team with the best regular-season record in the Campbell Conference (the successor to the West Division) through the 1980-81 season. Beginning with the 1981-82 season, it switched to the Campbell Conference playoff champions, and since the 1993-94 season, when the Campbell Conference became the Western Conference, has gone to the Western Conference playoff champions.

A tradition (or rather superstition) that is prevalent among many of today's NHL players is that no player should either touch or hoist the Campbell or the Prince of Wales trophies when they have won the conference playoffs; the players feel that the Stanley Cup is the true championship trophy and thus it should be the only trophy that they should be hoisting. Steve Yzerman, however, having previously captained the Detroit Red Wings to two Stanley Cup championships, famously carried the Campbell Trophy into the locker room following their 7-0 victory in Game 7 of the Western Conference Finals against the Colorado Avalanche in 2002. Joe Sakic also hoisted the trophy after the Avalanche beat the Red Wings in the 1996 Western Conference Finals in 6 games; The Avalanche would go on to sweep the Florida Panthers and win the Stanley Cup. Trevor Linden of the Vancouver Canucks hoisted the cup over his head after the beating Toronto Maple Leafs in the conference finals, when he lifted the trophy, the lid fell off top. The Canucks went on to lose in the Stanley Cup Finals to the New York Rangers.
