As Colin Campbell puts it, his son Gregory Campbell has taken a lot of “crap” over the years while playing in the NHL with his father serving as the NHL discipline czar.
Serious accusations have been whispered about the league favoring the son and his teams, and the dynamic has been the source of plenty of trash talk on the ice over the years.
It’s enough to make you wonder sometimes why the Bruins center ever wanted to follow his fathers footsteps into the NHL. Yesterday was another one of those days that validated the veteran’s decision to be a hockey player.
A little more than a month after the Bruins defeated Vancouver in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final, Campbell spent his day with the Cup in and around Kitchener, Ontario, as reported by Kevin McGran of The Star. His father and a lot more family were on hand for portions of Campbell’s celebration.
The Cup continues its tour of Ontario into the early part of next week.
