Kampfer has been relegated to the press box for the Rangers last two outings.

EDGE Analysis

WIth Ryan McDonagh healthy, Kampfer has found himself the odd man out on New York's blue line with no clear indication of when he might rejoin the lineup. When the 29-year-old is in the lineup (13 outsing this season), he's averaging a mere 15:31 of ice time in which he has garnered a lone assist. Without a consistent role, combined with his limited offensive talents, Kampfer is unlikely to offer much in terms of fantasy value -- even in ancillary scoring categories such as hits (26) and blocks (24).

Kampfer suited up against the Golden Knights on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Kampfer's inclusion in the lineup ended an eight-game stretch as a spectator. The defenseman logged a mere 12:06 of ice time with only a minus-1 rating to show for it. Without a consistent spot on the Rangers' blue line, the 29-year-old will not offer much in terms of fantasy value.

Kampfer signed a two-year, two-way contract extension with the Rangers on Wednesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kampfer spent the majority of the 2016-17 campaign in the minors and only appeared in 11 NHL contests this season, so this is purely a depth signing for the Rangers. He'll once again spend the majority of the 2017-18 season in the minors, but he should get an opportunity to draw into a few games with the big club as well.

Kampfer was recalled from the team's AHL Hartford affiliate Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

The 28-year-old blueliner has spent the majority of his season at the AHL level fine tuning his game. He's served as a relatively productive piece for a defenseman, notching 19 points (four goals, 15 assists) 43 contests at the level, but it's unlikely to translate to extended ice time and effectiveness at the top level. His last extended run with an NHL squad came with the Panthers in 2015-16, when he tallied just four points across 47 games.

Kampfer was reassigned to AHL Hartford on Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Although Kevin Klein (back) and Dan Girardi (ankle) remain sidelined for the time being, the news that Kampfer is being sent down would seem to indicate that Klein could be ready to return soon. Kampfer did not impress in the one game he drew into, posting two shots on goal, three blocked shots, and a minus-2 in 15:44 of ice time against Washington.

Kampfer was recalled from AHL Hartford on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

With both Kevin Klein (back) and Dan Girardi (ankle) set to miss Tuesday's contest against Washington, Kampfer was tipped as a defensive reinforcement. The former Michigan product has played parts of five seasons in the NHL, recording 23 points in 134 games. Expect Kampfer to fill a limited, third-pairing role in Tuesday's tilt.

Kampfer was assigned to the Rangers' minor league affiliate, AHL Hartford, after his acquisition from the Panthers on Tuesday, Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kampfer was acquired earlier Tuesday along with a conditional seventh-round draft pick for defenseman Dylan Mcllrath. While Kampfer has 38 games of NHL experience under his belt, he's managed to notch only four points during that time. He'll likely remain with the minor-league club for the foreseeable future and is all but irrelevant in fantasy formats.

Kampfer was traded to the Rangers on Tuesday along with a conditional seventh-round draft pick for Dylan McIlrath, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.

EDGE Analysis

Kampfer was waived by the Panthers on Sunday, as the club had little use for the oft-injured blueliner who has only drawn into one game this season. For the Rangers, Brady Skjei and Kevin Klein have garnered consistent playing time as bottom-pairing defensemen and Adam Clendening is available as a spare, so Kampfer might be hard-pressed to start out with the parent club.

Kampfer, who was placed on waivers Sunday, remains with the team for the time being, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

EDGE Analysis

In order to be sent down to the minors, Florida had to first waive Kampfer, but having cleared Monday, the team can retain him in the majors. The 28-year-old has suited up just once this season, so it seems likely he will be a temporary stand in until some of the injured Panthers are cleared to return.

Kampfer was put on waivers by the Panthers on Sunday, Hervey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel reports.

EDGE Analysis

If Kampfer clears waivers, he'll head to AHL Springfield. The 28-year-old only played in one game with Florida, and didn't look spectacular, so he should clear.
