Bruins' Steven Kampfer: Still facing lengthy recovery

Kampfer (hand) will need another 2-3 months to fully recover from hand surgery, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports. Based on his timeline, Kampfer should be cleared just in time for the start of training camp in the fall, though it could impact his offseason conditioning program. The veteran blueliner is set to hit the open market this offseason unless he can secure a contract extension in the coming weeks. Regardless of where he ends up, the Michigan native is unlikely to offer much in the way of fantasy value given his limited offensive upside.

Bruins' Steven Kampfer: Out indefinitely

Coach Bruce Cassidy said Sunday that Kampfer has an arm injury and won't be available for the remainder of the playoffs, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports. It's unclear how the veteran suffered the arm injury, but as evidenced by this news, it's serious enough to keep him out for a significant amount of time. Kampfer was solid in depth duties on defense this season, recording five points, 20 hits and 24 blocks across 20 games. With Kampfer sidelined, expect Connor Clifton and Jarred Tinordi to continue to handle duties on the third defensive pair going forward.
