Kampfer, Lucic & Stuart Practice
WILMINGTON, Mass. -- The Boston Bruins returned to practice today at Ristuccia Memorial Arena and saw many of their injured players return to the ice.

Prior to the main session, defenseman Andrew Ference worked out with Strength and Conditioning Coach John Whitesides.

Fellow d-man Marc Stuart and left wing Milan Lucic both practiced with the full squad and were joined by rookie blueliner Steven Kampfer, who was injured during Saturday’s matinee against Pittsburgh. 

Kampfer was victimized by a Pittsburgh high-sticking penalty, which caused defenseman Zdeno Chara’s stick to impact the rookie's face early in the second period of Saturday’s game.

Kampfer did not return to the ice and, post-game, Bruins Head Coach Claude Julien said that Kampfer had suffered a broken nose and was at the hospital being evaluated.

“Zee (Chara) was probably the first person to text me after the game to see how I was doing,” Kampfer said Sunday afternoon.

"His stick just got caught and sling-shotted right into my face.”

But despite the broken nose, Kampfer said he felt lucky that there were no concussion symptoms and he’d be able to get right back out on the ice. 

“He seems to be doing okay,” Julien said after practice. “He said the breathing through his nose is not the easiest but you know it just happened yesterday.

"I think there’s still a lot of blood up there, hopefully that clears up before tomorrows game and that get’s a little better.”

Kampfer wore a full plastic shield throughout the team's skate.
 
The mask, which is similar to the masks required in NCAA hockey, wasn’t hard to adjust to according to the former Michigan Wolverine. 

“I'm just trying to get used to the full shield again," said Kampfer. "I get out of college and then I guess I go right back into it putting it back on."

Kampfer's return to the ice is good news for the Bruins.

The young d-man has been on a roll of late with 4-1-5 totals in his last five games and should be an important part of the B’s defense as they head into Monday’s matinee against Carolina -- the final game of a four game home stand for Boston.
