Bruins center Gregory Campbell still has not skated with the team, due to a core injury that has kept him sidelined. As of today, head coach Claude Julien has said his readiness for the season opener on October 8th against the Philadelphia Flyers is up in the air.
“I’d say right now it’s questionable,” Julien told reporters after Monday’s practice. “Questionable means it could go either way, and I don’t know if he’ll be ready for that opener. From what I’m hearing, there’s a possibility he could be skating this week. That will be determined on how he progresses the next few days here.”
Last season, Campbell racked up eight goals and 16 assists in 82 games for the B’s. His absence from team practices leaves questions over his job as fourth line center, with Alexander Khokhlachev and Ryan Spooner both vying for the spot as well.
