Bruins Sign Steven Kampfer To 2-Year Contract Extension

Deal carries an annual NHL cap hit of $800,000

by Boston Bruins @NHLBruins / Boston Bruins

BOSTON - Boston Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney announced today, June 25, that the team has signed defenseman Steven Kampfer to a two-year contract extension through the 2020-21 season with an annual cap hit of $800,000.

Kampfer, 30, has skated in 201 career NHL games, compiling 13 goals and 19 assists for 32 points with 104 penalty minutes.

After being acquired by the Bruins via trade from the New York Rangers on September 11, 2018, the 5-foot-11, 195-pound blueliner skated in 35 regular season games for the Bruins in 2018-19, tallying three goals and three assists for six points, while adding a goal in the team's Game 1 win in the Eastern Conference Final vs. the Carolina Hurricanes.

Bruins Breakdown: 2019 Free Agency

Johansson, Acciari, Kampfer set to hit the market on July 1

by Eric Russo @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

BOSTON - With the Bruins' run to the Stanley Cup Final firmly in the rearview mirror, it's time for the organization to shift its focus to the future. That process began over the weekend in Vancouver as Don Sweeney and his scouting staff selected five players during the 2019 NHL Entry Draft.

It is unlikely that any of those new prospects will make an immediate impact on the roster in 2019-20, so Sweeney will have to fortify his lineup with players from within the system and free agency, which begins a week from Monday.

The Bruins have three unrestricted free agents (Noel Acciari, Marcus Johansson, and Steven Kampfer) from the big club, with another four that played mostly in Providence this season (Zane McIntyre, Mark McNeill, Lee Stempniak, and Jordan Szwarz).

by Eric Russo and Riley Nelson @NHLBruins / BostonBruins.com

VANCOUVER, British Columbia - The Bruins left here on Saturday afternoon with five shiny new prospects in their toolbox after selecting four forwards and a defenseman during the 2019 NHL Entry Draft at Rogers Arena.

The crop's headliner was first-round pick John Beecher, a centerman out of the United States National Team Development Program that boasts an impressive blend of size (6-foot-3, 209 pounds) and elite skating.

Rounding out the Black & Gold's 2019 Draft class on Day 2 were forwards Quinn Olson, Matias Mantykivi, and Jake Schmaltz, as well as Russian blue liner Roman Bychkov.

"I think we got some depth," Bruins assistant general manager Scott Bradley said following the Draft's conclusion on Saturday afternoon. "You know, we spread it out pretty good. We got a couple good forwards, got the D-man from Russia, so we're excited…we hit on a lot of guys on our list."
