Gregory Campbell back on the ice with Bruins

WILMINGTON — Bruins center Gregory Campbell skated with teammates Thursday at Ristuccia Arena, a highly encouraging sign for the team with the start of the regular season a little less than a month away.

Campbell broke his leg blocking an Evgeni Malkin slap shot in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference finals against the Penguins, famously getting up and finishing his shift despite the break. He underwent surgery on June 10 and spent the offseason recovering.

Campbell did not seem limited on the ice Thursday, skating and shooting without any apparent problems.

The other newcomer to captains practices Thursday was forward Jordan Caron, who figures to compete for a bottom-six job this season.
