Expected to Make Trip to Philadelphia and Washington

Boston, MA
- Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has recalled defenseman Steven Kampfer from the Providence Bruins. Kampfer is expected to join the Bruins on their upcoming trip to Philadelphia and Washington.

Kampfer, 23, missed the first six games of this NHL season due to an injury sustained in preseason. Since his return, he has played in seven games for Boston, registering one assist. He has skated in five games for Providence this season, registering one assist and two penalty minutes. In 2010-11, his rookie season, the Ann Arbor, MI native skated in 22 games with Providence, recording 3+13=16 totals and a team-high plus-10 rating. He earned his first NHL recall on December 8, 2010 and skated in 38 games for Boston, during which the blueliner tallied five goals and five assists.

Originally drafted by Anaheim in the fifth round (93rd overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, Kampfer was traded to Boston for a 2010 4th round pick on March 2, 2010.
