Bruins' fourth line center Gregory Campbell will be a spectator to start the regular season. According to a report on, Campbell skated Thursday on his own. Campbell has been dealing with a "minor mid-core injury".

In that same report, Bruins' coach Claude Julien said "Game shape is going to be a little tough for him to do in such a short span. The good thing is he’s skating, and hopefully he progresses in the right direction.” When Campbell returns, it may take a few games for the veteran to get back up to speed.

Craig Cunningham and Chris Kelly are the favorites to take Campbell's place on the fourth line.
