Boston Bruins' forward Gregory Campbell is out for the season with a broken leg suffered in Wednesday's game against the Pittsburgh Penguins, general manager Peter Chiarelli said Thursday.
Despite a broken right fibula, Campbell remained on the ice for 50 seconds attempting to kill a penalty.
"For what he went through, he showed a lot of guts to stay out there and to still try and play," head coach Claude Julien told reporters after Wednesday's game. "Obviously, it was a pretty serious injury. So that's just the kind of player he is, and it doesn't surprise me. It doesn't surprise his teammates, but certainly it shows the character of that player, and that's why we appreciate having him on our team."
Campbell had three goals and four assists in 15 playoff games while serving as a penalty killer.
