Carter James Camper (born July 6, 1988) is an American professional ice hockey player. In 2010, after four seasons in the NCAA, Camper signed with the Boston Bruins of the National Hockey League (NHL). Since turning professional, he has played most of his professional career in the American Hockey League (AHL). In February 2014, Camper was traded to the Columbus Blue Jackets, and in July 2014, Camper joined the NHL Ottawa Senators organization as a free agent.

Playing career[edit]

College[edit]

Camper played four seasons of Division I NCAA hockey with the Miami RedHawks in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association.[1]

He finished as the active career scoring leader in the United States.[2] In 2010–11, he was fourth in the nation in points, third in the U.S. in assists, and third nationally in points per game at 1.46.[2] In 156 career college games, he had 69 goals and 114 assists for 183 points.[2] He ranked second on the school career points list, second in career assists, and tied for seventh in career goals.[2]

Professional[edit]

On April 7, 2011, following his graduation, Camper was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Boston Bruins.[3] He was then immediately assigned to the Bruins top AHL affiliate, the Providence Bruins, where he made his professional debut the following night in a 5–4 win over the Portland Pirates.[3]

On February 22, 2012, Camper made his NHL debut with the Bruins against the St. Louis Blues after being recalled from Providence on February 20, 2012. He logged a total of 6:21 time on ice.[4][5] On February 25, 2012, Camper scored his first career NHL goal against Alex Auld of the Ottawa Senators. It was assisted by Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid. This was also his first NHL point.[6] On February 27, 2012, Camper was sent back down to Providence along with two others as the result of two trades the Bruins made, acquiring three players.[7]

On February 7, 2014, Camper was traded by the Bruins to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for Blake Parlett and he joined the Springfield Falcons.[8] Camper left the Blue Jackets organization as a free agent on July 2, 2014 when he signed a one-year two-way contract with the Ottawa Senators.[9]

Personal life[edit]

Camper, who was born in Rocky River, Ohio, is Jewish,[10][11][12] and is the middle son of Rick and Heidi Camper.[13] His older brother Ben played hockey for the minor-league Tulsa Oilers of the Central Hockey League in 2008–09, and his brother Jay played junior hockey for the Alpena (Mich.) Ice Diggers of the North American Hockey League, the Lincoln Stars and Chicago Steel of the United States Hockey League, and now plays for the University of New Hampshire.[13][14][15]
