It's not really a Gregory Campbell moment but since we're all talking injuries, this happened in a pick up game last night (routinely, the same 30-40 guys cycle through the lineup. It's very casual and fun while still trying to keep it competitive).

It was at the very end of the game, our player was taking the puck up the ice, skating by the benches, when the guy checking him gave him a bump and sent him into an open gate (a change had just occurred) at full speed. I haven't heard anything about what the official damage was but he was down and out, and I'm assuming has a few cracked ribs. Pretty bad whiplash too from hitting the ice as his helmet must have cut him behind the ear. He was also cut a bit around his mouth.

It was a one in a million, horridly "perfectly" timed play and there was really no intent. Unfortunately, the guy who gave him the bump is one who has a history of taking it a bit too seriously and throwing stupid interference type checks at this pickup. It's a shame it was him just because of his reputation...
