Deadline deal makes Steve Kampfer the latest former Michigan hockey player to change NHL teams
Steve Kampfer won a Stanley Cup last year with the Boston Bruins. He won't get a chance to help them repeat.
Kampfer had been assigned to the Providence Bruins, Boston's American Hockey League affiliate, on Feb. 11.

The deal for Kampfer was reported just moments before Monday's 3 p.m. trade deadline. He is the latest of three former Michigan hockey players to be dealt in recent weeks.
Jack Johnson was traded from the Los Angeles Kings to the Columbus Blue Jackets last week.
Michael Cammalleri made headlines in January when he was traded from the Montreal Canadians to the Calgary Flames during an intermission of a game against the Bruins.
Cammalleri started the game for Montreal but was on his way to Calgary before game's end.
