BOSTON, MA - Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced
today that the club has assigned defenseman Steven Kampfer to the
Providence Bruins (American Hockey League). He will report to Providence
on Thursday, but will be in attendance at Thursday afternoon's Cuts
for a Cause event in Boston (2:30 p.m., Ned Devine's, Faneuil Hall,
Boston, MA)

Kampfer, a 5'11", 197-lb native of Ann Arbor, Michigan, has
appeared in 38 games this season with Boston. He has 5-5=10 totals with
12 PIM since his first NHL call-up on December 8, 2010.

In 20 AHL games with Providence, the 22-year-old Kampfer has 3-13=16
totals and 10 PIM. Originally drafted in the fourth round (93rd overall)
of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft by the Anaheim Ducks, Kampfer was acquired
by the Bruins in a March 2010 trade with the Ducks in exchange for a
fourth round pick in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft (Justin Shugg). Before
turning pro, Kampfer played four seasons at the University of Michigan,
appearing in 147 games with 7-53=60 totals and 134 PIM.

The P-Bruins wrap up their 2010-11 season this weekend with games on
Friday, April 8 (vs. Portland, 7 p.m.), Saturday, April 9 (at
Springfield, 7 p.m.) and Sunday, April 10 (vs. Manchester, 4 p.m.).
