CHICAGO -- Chicago Blackhawks defenceman Brian Campbell has returned to practice for the first time since he broke a collarbone and a rib after a hit from Washington's Alex Ovechkin on March 14.

The Blackhawks initially said Campbell would miss seven or eight weeks.

Campbell says he still doesn't have a timetable to return. He won't play Friday when the Blackhawks open the playoffs at home against Nashville.

Ovechkin drove Campbell into the boards from behind, drew a game misconduct penalty for the hit and later got a two-game suspension. The injuries ended Campbell's streak of consecutive regular-season games at 388.

Campbell is in the second year of an eight-year, US$56.8-million contract.
