In the Barn...


When you walk into the barn at Campbell's parents' home, the musk aroma and crafted wooden frame immediately take you back to a time when a young Gregory might spend hours shooting pucks into its sides. This is the place where No. 11 worked out growing up - he wasn't necessarily going to the gym all the time, so he did chin-ups on the wood beams.

For the hockey faithful, a slew of Youngblood references come to mind... And though Campbell was not the cornerstone of a movie, he said there were actually times when his Dad would turn on the Rocky soundtrack and he would have his own Rocky Balboa moment after a tough workout.

The training was laced with dreams of one day making it to the NHL - and like every other hockey player in his youth, a young Campbell would sometimes practice signing his name. The blackboard with those decades-old autographs now stays in his parents' barn - a foreshadowing, to say the least. And when glancing around at the memories inside the barn, Gregory had a good laugh looking at the "autographs" and remembering those "glory days."

In addition to workouts inside the barn, there was also a steep hill behind his house with a stream at the bottom, where he would usually run up and down 20 times. Longtime friend (and current New York Ranger) Steve Eminger would often join in the workouts and they would help push each other.
