Blackhawks' Campbell's Season May Be Over

Blackhawks' defensemen, Brian Campbell, could miss the rest of the season because of the check he received from Captials' forward, Alexander Ovechkin, according to league sources. 

Campbell has a broken clavicle and  ribs after being checked into the boards on Sunday's game. Campbell remained on the ice for several minutes as trainers attended him. 

Said Hawks captain Jonathan Toews: "We're hoping for the best with Brian. There's so much of that stuff [head injuries] going on now, it's pretty frustrating the players don't take a stand against something like that and say, 'You know what, we have to respect ourselves a little bit more,' and know it's not all about the flashy hit. You have to know when there's a dangerous situation and you can really hurt somebody and be smarter about it."

Losing Campbell for the season would be a devastating blow to the Hawks as Campbell is having a tremendous year. He has accumulated 39 points and has a +/- of +18.
