Back in June, Boston Bruins forward Gregory Campbell made a last impression by staying on the ice despite breaking his leg while blocking a shot in the 2013 Eastern Conference finals. It should come as no surprise that teammates were delighted to see the 29-year-old take the ice with teammates for the first time since suffering that injury on Thursday, then.
“Seeing him out there today, he’s finally smiling, so it’s nice to see him and just have him in the room being himself and being part of the team and doing everything with us,” Johnny Boychuk said.
Campbell seemed confident that he’d be ready to return for training camp when asked in August, and it looks like that will indeed work out.
