Steven Kampfer D MIN 11 Months
Steven Kampfer has been recalled from the Houston Aeros to participate in the Minnesota Wild training camp.
The groin injury suffered by Marco Scandella creates an opening on the Wild blueline that Kampfer is a candidate to fill. His prior NHL experience could give him a leg up over phenom Matt Dumba.

The Minnesota Wild sent Greg Zanon to the Boston Bruins for Steven Kampfer.
In a matter of hours, the Wild lost their two best defensive defensemen in Zanon and Nick Schultz (and they also spun Marek Zidlicky to the Devils on Feb. 24). Kampfer has played in 22 games this season, 10 in the NHL and 12 in the NHL, spending much of the year as the Bruins' extra blueliner. He has two assists, four penalty minutes and a plus-six rating in the NHL this year.
