Steven Kampfer: Headed to KHL

Kampfer, who turns 33 in September, logged two goals and five points in 20 games with the Bruins this past season.

Bruins' Steven Kampfer: Still facing lengthy recovery
Kampfer (hand) will need another 2-3 months to fully recover from hand surgery, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.

Coach Bruce Cassidy said Sunday that Kampfer has an arm injury and won't be available for the remainder of the playoffs, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.

Kampfer was solid in depth duties on defense this season, recording five points, 20 hits and 24 blocks across 20 games. With Kampfer sidelined, expect Connor Clifton and Jarred Tinordi to continue to handle duties on the third defensive pair going forward.... See More ... See Less

Kampfer scored a goal and two assists in Friday's 6-4 loss to the Sabres.
Where did that come from? Kampfer came into the game with only one goal and two points in 17 games this year, and he hasn't scored double-digit points in an NHL season since he was a rookie in 2010-11, but for one night he did a credible impression of Ray Bourque, opening the scoring early in the first period before notching two helpers in the third as the Bruins tried to rally from a 4-1 deficit.
