Brian Campbell injured his knee in a preseason game against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

“It’s been pretty boring the last month,” Campbell told┬áNHL.com staff writer Sergei J. Feldman, after taking the ice for the team’s morning skate. “I’m ready to go tonight and help out and get a feel for it again.”

Campbell enters tonight’s game against the Rangers, confident that his knee will hold up and alloy him to be effective.

Campbell participated in a rigorous skate in Minnesota and then a less intense skate this morning in New York.

Campbell’s return should be a good boost the the Blackhawks defense. According to early reports, Campbell will be paired up with Niklas Hjalmarsson. That matchup was effective for the Blackhawks throughout the regular and post-season last year.
