Chicago Blackhawks defenseman Brian Campbell's season could be over due to a broken clavicle and ribs suffered in Sunday's contest against the Washington Capitals, according to league sources.

Campbell was checked by Alex Ovechkin into the end boards behind the Hawks' goal with 7:44 remaining in the first period. Campbell remained on the ice for several minutes as trainers attended to him before leaving.

Ovechkin was given a five-minute major penalty and a game misconduct. The Capitals won the game 4-3 in overtime.

After the game, Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said, "[Campbell] is going to be out for a bit. It was a tough hit, a dangerous hit."
