Montreal Canadiens defenseman Chris Campoli is expected to miss a significant chunk of time after suffering a serious leg injury in the club's season-opening loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.Campoli suffered the injury after jamming his skate in the Air Canada Centre ice during the second period of the 2-0 defeat. 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.
Acquired from Ottawa at the trade deadline, Campoli appeared in 19 games with Chicago and had one goal and six assists.
