(BOSTON) — Boston Bruins forward Gregory Campbell returned to the locker room on Tuesday almost two weeks after breaking his right leg while blocking a shot.
“I feel good,” Campbell said Tuesday. “I mean, it’s been eight or nine days. I had the surgery a week ago Monday. Obviously, naturally you have that progression where there’s a little bit of pain coming out of surgery. But everybody did a great job, treated me extremely well. The pain subsided very quickly. There’s not much I can do at this point, just kind of let it heal.”
The injury occurred June 5 in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Penguins, but Campbell was in high spirits. He was asked how it feels to be watching his team play in the Stanley Cup Finals, up 2-1 in the series to the Blackhawks.
“I’m extremely proud of my teammates and fortunate to be here, fortunate to have been part of the run that I was on. Now I’m cheering them on pretty loudly,” he said.
Campbell is expected to be ready for Bruins training camp.
