Kampfer could start skating this week

BOSTON -- Bruins defenseman Steven Kampfer (knee) continues his rehab and could begin skating this week, according to coach Claude Julien.

Kampfer suffered a sprained MCL during the preseason. Julien also said it hasn’t been decided yet whether or not Kampfer will travel with the team on the upcoming road trip to Carolina and Chicago.

“It will all depend on our medical staff,” Julien said. “Whether it’s to his advantage to come and skate with us or whether it’s better he skate here on his own and get the knee treatment. So that’s something we will probably find out before tomorrow.”
