Florida Panthers defenseman Brian Campbell, who skated with former Chicago Blackhawks teammates in the Windy City, said players might have to get used to working out on their own for up to another week before teams can open training camp.
While Campbell has been working out with about 15 players, the Philadelphia Flyers haven't had as many teammates around to skate together lately.
"It was a long four months," Flyers defenseman Kimmo Timonen said. "Not many guys are around here. You kind of have to keep in shape just in case this happens. This creates a quick turnaround here."
