Matt Campanale (born February 14, 1988) is an American former professional ice hockey defenseman who played in the National Hockey League with the New York Islanders. He is from Chester Springs, Pennsylvania.
Campanale played four seasons of collegiate hockey with the New Hampshire Wildcats men's ice hockey team before signing an amateur try-out contract with the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the American Hockey League following the 2010–11 NCAA season. After two games with the Sound Tigers, Campanale was surprisingly signed to an amateur try-out contract with Bridgeports' NHL affiliate, the New York Islanders, after their defense was overcome with injury.
In his first full professional season in 2011–12, Campanale signed in the ECHL with the Bakersfield Condors. After 8 games he was traded to fellow ECHL competitor the Elmira Jackals, where he remained for the majority of the season. On July 23, 2012, Campanale re-signed with the Jackals to a one-year extension.
On August 8, 2013, Campanale moved to his fourth ECHL club, signing a one-year deal with reigning champions the Reading Royals.
