Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brian Campbell will miss at least the first month of the season after suffering a knee injury.

The Chicago Tribune on Saturday quoted 'Hawks head coach Joel Quenneville as saying Campbell will be out of action about four or five weeks with a sprained right knee.

Campbell was forced to leave Friday's exhibition victory over the Pittsburgh Penguins after taking a hit along the boards.

It is another stroke of bad luck for the bruising backliner, who was forced to sit out the remainder of the regular season with a broken collarbone and fractured ribs after taking an illegal hit from Capitals superstar forward Alex Ovechkin last March. He was not fully healthy until late in the opening round of the playoffs.

Last season, the 31-year-old recorded seven goals and 38 points in 68 games, adding a goal and five points in 19 playoff tilts for the defending Stanley Cup champions.

so the bad luck begins for the Hawks. Wonder if they will end up like us and play with half a team all season, due to injury. It would be interesting to see if they could make the playoffs (as the Wings did) with most of their regulars out injured.

When we lost all those guys, we had to bring in our top prospects from the AHL. Chicago's top prospects are already in the regular lineup....

Not a big deal. The Hawks have a 12-man core. With probably about 10 more core guys in high school. They'll be fine.

Ouch. It is a tough break for Campbell. The collar bone last season, now this to start off the new season.

I guess he can take some consolation in the fact he's grossly overpaid. He'll be well paid for rehabbing that knee.

Yea, but he's one of their expensive core the fans want to get rid of, so he doesn't count.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

Campbell is a terrible player who adds nothing to their team. Him being out hurts the Hawks how?

Well, he's better than Leddy... The guy who will be replacing him.

It's okay, Blackhawks have 5 players that will win Calder trophies this season. The pieces are falling in place fro them to walk away with the division title. <_<

we have to remember that for all the crap Campbell gets for his albatross contract he is still a decent top 4 blue liner. when he got injured from Ovechkin's hit last season the Hawks struggled mightily in the games he missed

Agreed.

Campbell's not bad, he's just ridiculously overpaid. That's not his fault.

I disagree. Cambell is a good d-man but not a great d-man. The Hawks will replace him with yet another prospect.

Campbell isn't as bad as his contract. When he isn't playing, the Hawks struggle.
