The veteran defenseman has been working tirelessly on skates and in the video room as he tries to turn his game around. After a rough seven-game stretch earlier this month in which Campbell recorded a minus-11 rating while the Hawks went 1-5-1, the 29-year-old seems to have righted the ship, and the team has gone right along with him with two consecutive victories.
