Why Gregory Campbell Won’t Sign Pictures Of His Shot Block

from DJ Bean of WEEI,

"I'd rather get attention by helping the team win and raising the Cup rather than getting hurt and breaking my leg," he said Thursday night, hours after participating in captains practice for the first time. "… For me it was more of a discouraging moment that I had to overcome." 

In fact, Campbell felt so uneasy about the celebrity that accompanied his injury that he decided this summer to not sign any autographs on the image. Fliers for an autograph signing in Braintree last month even included a message: "Please note: Campbell will not sign any photos related to his injury."

"I did a few, and then I started thinking about it. I don't want to glorify it," Campbell said. "It's over. The play's over, and I want to move on and focus on what's really important -- that's playing. I don't want to make something out of that play and make it into something bigger than it was. It was a blocked shot that happens countless times in a game and series and things like that, so I was just trying to what I a had to do to help this team."
