Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Bingo Kampman
Defenseman Rudolph Kampman was known by the colourful nickname of "Bingo" during his playing days, which included five seasons in the National Hockey League starting in 1937.

He already has three seasons of Senior hockey to his credit when he made the leap to the NHL and the Toronto Maple Leafs. Kampman played 32 games as a rookie and was able to score a goal and added two assists in that time. The following year he upped his games played to a career-high 41 and managed to scored a couple of goals and 10 points. His third season, the 1939-40 campaign, saw him hit career bests in goals, assists and points with six goals, nine assists and fifteen points. He was unable to build on his success however, and the next year his production slipped to just five points. Though he got his point total back up to 11 points the following year it was what was accomplished in the post-season that was more important. Kampman chipped in two assists in 13 playoff games while helping the Maple Leafs win the Stanley Cup. It proved to be a fitting finale to his NHL career as he would not play at that level again following his Cup triumph.

The next three seasons Kampman spent playing Senior hockey on Canada's east coast before being traded by the Maple Leafs by the Boston Bruins prior to the 1945-46 season. The Bruins traded "Bingo" back to Toronto just a week later and they assigned him to the Providence Reds of the American Hockey League. After spending the rest of that season and all of the next two in the AHL, Kampman moved on to the Pacific Coast Hockey League in 1948, where he was named an All-Star for his 20 point effort with the Fresno Falcons.

In 1950-51, Kampman returned to his hometown of Kitchener, Ontario to play his final season. After scoring two goals and five points in 23 games with the Kitchener Dutchmen "Bingo" Kampman hung up his blades for good.
