Campbell Working Out; Thornton Hopes He\'ll be Ready for Camp

BostonBruins.com - Gregory Campbell powered his way - if he hadn't already - into the hearts of Bruins and hockey fans everywhere when he showcased the "do whatever it takes" mentality representative of the spoked-B and the Stanley Cup Playoffs this past June.

On June 5, the B's forward broke his leg (right fibula) while blocking an Evgeni Malkin slap shot during Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Final against the Pittsburgh Penguins. He missed the rest of the postseason.

It's been just over two months since he underwent successful surgery to repair the break on June 10, and it appears that he's on track for Training Camp next month.

When media gathered at Shawn Thornton's annual Putts & Punches for Parkinson's charity golf tournament on Monday at Ferncroft Country Club in Middelton, MA, the B's forward divulged that he had seen fellow Merlot liner Campbell a couple of weeks ago in Boston.

“He looks pretty good. He’s up walking around - and he said he’s been working out," Thornton told reporters. "He looks good, so I’m hoping he’s ready to go for the start of the camp."

Back in June, after his surgery, Campbell had said he was a given a six to eight weeks "soft timeline."

"I guess it really depends on the individual, how fast you heal, whatever the healing process presents," Campbell said at the time.

"I'm   fully  expecting  to  be  100%  at  camp. Maybe I won't  be participating fully in camp. I can't say that right now. But if you look at six to eight weeks, it puts me in mid July to late July, early August [when] I'll be back on my feet."

With Campbell walking around and working out, it looks as if he's on his recovery path towards camp.

Before he could even begin working out and going through the rehabilitation process, the B's centerman knew that he'd have to adapt his offseason workouts this year.

"Obviously my training program is going to change a little bit," Campbell said following his surgery in June, when he was still in a leg cast and using crutches. "That's a big part of my game. But that's just something that I have to deal with and I'll have to work around."

The Bruins' Training Camp is set to begin next month on Wednesday, September 11.
