Nine1One Posted October 2, 2010 Report Share Posted October 2, 2010 Hawks' Campbell to miss 4-5 weeks with knee injury Saturday, 10.02.2010 / 2:40 PM / News NHL.com Share The Chicago Blackhawks announced on Saturday that defenseman Brian Campbell will miss 4-5 weeks with a sprained knee. Campbell, 31, is entering his third season in Chicago after signing a massive eight-year deal with the club in 2008. He had 7 goals and 31 assists last season and added another 5 points (1 goal, 4 assists) in 19 postseason contests to help the Blackhawks win their first Stanley Cup since 1961. With Campbell out, it is expected that 19-year-old Nick Leddy will make the club out of training camp. Leddy, who was the Minnesota Wild's first-round pick (No. 19) in 2009, had 3 goals and 8 assists for the University of Minnesota last season. He was acquired on Feb. 12 in the deal that sent Cam Barker to the Wild. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
