Pistons VP Takes Over Tampa

Ron Campbell was appointed president of the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday in the latest effort by the new owner to shake up a team that had the NHL's worst record last year.

Campbell, a vice president of the Detroit Pistons, has been the top officer for Palace Sports & Entertainment the past 15 years.

Pistons owner William Davidson completed his purchase of the Lightning last month. Since then the club hired general manager Rick Dudley and coach Steve Ludzik.

Campbell will handle day-to-day operations of all departments for the Lightning. He will remain an executive vice president for Palace Sports & Entertainment.
