Some injury news on Dave Bolland and Brian Campbell

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

It turns out center Dave Bolland has been battling an injury. The Hawks center is now considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

Bolland didn't play in the third period of Friday's loss to the Oilers after sitting out the morning skate and practice Thursday.

The good news is that coach Joel Quenneville said it has nothing to do with the herniated disc that required surgery and forced Bolland to miss half of last season.

"I don't think it's serious. I don't think we're talking the same thing [as last year]," Quenneville said. "It's upper body. I'm going to rule out this injury has anything to do with last year."

On Campbell

On Friday, Quenneville had called Brian Campbell's availability during this two-game trip to Minnesota (Saturday) and New York (Monday) "doubtful."

But when asked about Campbell (sprained right knee) Saturday, Quenneville had a more positive outlook.

"I'm a little more encouraged than I was the other day," Quenneville said. "I'm optimistically encouraged."

So there is at least a slight chance that Campbell could play Monday against the Rangers.
