A View Into Injured Hawk’s Chicago Home

March 17, 2010

Looks like Blackhawks star Brian Campbell will get to spend more time in his Chicago home over the next couple months.

The Blackhawks defenseman will miss seven to eight weeks after a reckless hit in Sunday’s overtime loss to Washington scored him fractured ribs and a broken collarbone.

Campbell, 30, is playing in his second full season with the Chicago Blackhawks after the lefty signed an eight-year, $56.8 million contract in 2008. He could return by mid-May if the Hawks are still in the playoffs.

With that kind of budget, he must have a nice house, right?  Campbell invited ABC-Chicago’s Tracy Butler into his city home where he showed off his digs.  His home boasts a gourmet kitchen, a play area with a pool table, and tons of fascinating photos and memorabilia, all on three levels of living space plus a basement.

In the first period of Sunday’s game at the United Center, Campbell was dangerously hit from behind by Washington Capitals left winger Alex Ovechkin, who received a major penalty and game misconduct for the reckless hit. The NHL suspended the Capitals captain for two games with no pay; $232,645.40 that goes to the Players’ Emergency Assistance Fund for retired players.

The Hawks had a 3-0 lead going into the third period of that game but were outshot 11-1 and lost 4-3 in overtime at the United Center.

Campbell, whose nickname is Soupy, recently started a foundation called Campbell for Kids, which raises funds for charities in Chicago and throughout Illinois that help children with special needs.
