The 28-year-old defender has seen just a single game of action this season, and only 134 since being drafted in the fourth round in 2007. This isn't necessarily the end of the road for Kampfer, but he's also never proven to be much of a fantasy asset.

Steven Kampfer feels healthy going into training camp after he played through pain throughout the 2015-16 season.

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.
