Steven Kampfer feels healthy going into training camp after he played through pain throughout the 2015-16 season.
"From December on, I had been playing in pain," said Kampfer, who is fine now after knee surgery. "When I had the surgery, I got out of bed and wasn't in pain anymore. That was a breath of fresh air. Now I know everything is good. I have no lingering affects." The Panthers made some changes to the back end in the off-season and Kampfer will be battling for a job. Aug 12 - 1:32 PM
