The Colorado Avalanche Hockey Club announced today that it has acquired defenseman Darcy Campbell and forward Philippe Dupuis from the Columbus Blue Jackets organization in exchange for forward Mark Rycroft.  Campbell and Dupuis will report to the Avalanche’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters.

Campbell, 23, has appeared in 28 games for the Syracuse Crunch (AHL) this season, recording six points (1g/5a) and 26 penalty minutes.  He signed with Columbus as a free agent on March 24, 2007 after concluding a three-year career at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks (CCHA).  The Airdrie, Alberta, native played one game for the Blue Jackets in 2006-07, making his NHL debut on March 30, 2007 at Chicago.

Dupuis, 22, was Columbus’ fifth choice (104th overall) in the 2003 Entry Draft. He has tallied 11 points (7g/4a) in 29 games with the Blue Jackets’ AHL affiliate in Syracuse this season.  The Laval, Quebec, native collected 324 points (113g/211a) in 313 career games in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League from 2001-06.
