Steve Kampfer didn’t dress for New York’s series-opening win over Montreal on Wednesday.
Thursday, things went a little better.
Kampfer agreed to a two-year, two-way extension with the Blueshirts, per TVA. It’s a $1.3 million pact worth $650,000 annually at the NHL level.
Kampfer, 28, was acquired from Florida midseason in the Dylan McIlrath trade. He appeared in 10 games for the Blueshirts, scoring two points while averaging just under 13 minutes per night.
A veteran of nearly 150 career NHL contests, Kampfer had spent time with Boston and Minnesota prior to Florida and New York. He announced confirmation of the signing on his Instagram account earlier this afternoon.
