SUNRISE, Fla. – Florida Panthers Executive Vice President and General Manager Dale Tallon announced today that the club has agreed to a two-year contract extension with D Steven Kampfer.
“Since we acquired Steven in October, he has been a welcome addition to our organization,” said Tallon. “He has worked extremely hard since his recall and has fit very well into our line-up, contributing both offensively and defensively. Steven is most deserving of this contract extension and we look forward to his continued contributions to our club.”
Kampfer, 26, has appeared in 18 games with Florida this season, registering three points (1-2—3) with 18 shots on goal. During his career in the National Hockey League, he has played in 79 games for Florida (2015), Minnesota (2011-2012) and Boston (2010-2012), scoring eight goals with 10 assists and 24 penalty minutes. He played in 42 games with San Antonio (AHL) this season, scoring eight goals with 11 assists.
On the receiving end is Steve Kampfer.
Chris Kelly took exception to the hit and both he and Schenn received five for fighting and Kelly picked up an additional two for unsportsmanlike conduct.
Pretty good game, scored tied at three with about three minutes left in the middle period.

For any true blue Michigan Wolverines fan, Kampfer’s day with the Cup was a-MAIZE-ing as Steve made sure to bring Stanley back to Ann Arbor.
“I think with Michigan it was just one of those things,” he said. “We started off with my trainer and then brought it—I’ll call it home—because you spent so much time here at Yost.
“So you bring it back and get time to celebrate and spend time with the fans and the staff.
“I played here for four years and it was a defining time in my career,” continued Kampfer. “So, I really wanted to bring it back here and give something back to Mott’s hospital.”

Steve Kampfer, a fourth-round pick of the Ducks in 2007, remains hospitalized in Ann Arbor, Mich., after he was attacked by a University of Michigan football player early Sunday morning.
Kampfer, 20-year-old defenseman on Michigan’s hockey team, was thrown head first onto the sidewalk after he and a friend were confronted by a group of young men, university police said. A Ducks spokesman said that Kampfer suffered a fractured skull.
