MIDDLETON, Mass.—Can you believe it? It has been a little over two months since Boston Bruins forward Gregory Campbell suffered a broken right leg in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Finals. It does not seem that long ago, but apparently it has been long enough for Campbell to make tremendous strides in his recovery from the injury, as there is a chance he’ll be ready to go in time for training camp.
Bruins enforcer/ left winger Shawn Thornton gave some encouraging news in regards to Campbell’s status at his “Putts and Punches” charity golf tournament Monday afternoon, telling assembled media that he recently spent time with his linemate.
“He was at the house. He was in town for something and I lent him my car because he’s too cheap to rent one, so he was over the house couple of weeks ago,” Thornton said with a laugh. “He looks pretty good. He’s up, walking around and he said he’s been working out. He looks good, so I’m hoping he’s ready to go for the start of the camp.”
Training camp begins for the Black and Gold on September 11, and with this news from Thornton, Gregory Campbell may suit up with his teammates after all.
