Leafs Players Wife Stirs The Pot With Instgram Post

When the Toronto Maple Leafs signed David Kampf to a two-year contract in the summer of 2021 many Leaf fans would have had to google his name. Kampf's game isn't flashy, he's a good faceoff man, with good defensive awareness but lacks finishing ability.

Kampf outperformed his contract in his two seasons with Toronto, setting career highs in goals and points. General manager Brad Treliving and Kampf agreed to a four -year contract extension this summer with a raise from his $1.5M cap hit to $2.4M. Fans raised their eye brows at the dollar figure, with Toronto's cap situation and where Kampf fits on the depth chart it's tough to stomach.

Toronto have hit a rough patch in their season going 1-5 in their last stretch of games. Defensive mistakes and spotty goaltending have really cost them. After their 6-5 loss to the lowly Columbus Blue Jackets, Sheldon Keefe set a message to the group deciding that Kämpf would be a healthy scratch for Saturday's game due to his defensive mistakes.

It was a tightly contested game with special teams being the difference between the two in Toronto's 3-2 loss. Carolina scored two power play goals in the game, finishing the night 2-5.

It was an area where they probably could have used their number one penalty killer Kampf.

David Kampf's wife took to social media to post the following on her IG. I don't think this will be very helpful in getting her husband out of the doghouse with his coach but we love the entertainment.

Kampf has scored 4 goals and 7 points in 33 games this season. He has seen his average ice time cut from 15:18 last season to 13:05.
