Nick Leddy turns 21 today. Yes, he’s just now old enough to drink legally in the United States. Remember this the next time you want to berate him, meatballs.
Speaking of Leddy, he’s been finding consistency since being paired with Johnny Oduya. (CSN Chicago)

Chris Campoli, who apparently will not live down the fact that he turned over the puck that led to Alex Burrows’ series-winning goal for the Canucks for a while (seriously, guys — let it GO), underwent knee surgery on Tuesday.
Here’s the press release from the Blackhawks’ head physician, Dr. Michael Terry:
“Chris Campoli underwent successful right knee surgery on Tuesday afternoon to repair a torn meniscus. The procedure went very well and he will gradually return to normal off-season workouts. I anticipate a full recovery in approximately two months.”
Chris Campoli became a restricted free agent at the end of the season. I would not be surprised if he was re-signed, since he blended in well with the defense as soon as he came in and was a vast improvement over everyone else (must I remind everyone of Hendry, Cullimore, and especially Boynton?) in that position this year.
Here’s hoping that he gets well soon, and that he’s on the blue line for the Blackhawks next season.
