The 27-year-old needed assistance to leave the rink.Head coach Jacques Martin told reporters Saturday he didn't know when Campoli would be able to return, but estimated he would be out for "months."Signed to a one-year, $1.75 million deal on Sept. 26, Campoli collected four goals, 17 assists and 36 penalty minutes last season in 77 games with the Ottawa Senators and Chicago Blackhawks.
