He made his NHL debut on November 8, 2002 against the Ottawa Senators; picking up his first NHL point with an assist. He scored his first NHL goal in his fifth game on November 16, 2002 against the Edmonton Oilers, the game-winner, in a 4–1 victory.

In the 2004–05 AHL season, Cammalleri was awarded the Willie Marshall Award for leading the AHL in goals, scoring 46 while playing for the Manchester Monarchs.

He was a member of the 2007 Canadian IIHF World Championship team that won gold in a 4–2 win against Finland in Moscow. Cammalleri received a new 2 year contract worth $3.1 million in 2007–08 and $3.6 million in 2008–09 for an average cap hit of $3.35 million per year. At the start of the 2007–08 season he was named an alternate captain for the Kings.

On September 29, 2007, he scored the first ever regular season NHL goal in Europe.

On draft day, June 20, 2008, Cammalleri was traded to the Calgary Flames in a three-way deal between the Anaheim Ducks and the Kings. The Flames acquired Cammalleri from the Kings in exchange for the 17th overall pick in the draft. Los Angeles then dealt the 17th selection and its 28th pick to the Ducks for their 12th overall pick.

Cammalleri scored his first career NHL hat trick on November 27, 2008 in Calgary's 4-3 win in a game with the Vancouver Canucks.
