The move comes a day after Kampfer, who has only suited up for one game this season, cleared waivers.
Kampfer saw action in 47 games (4A, +5) for the Cats last year after playing in 25 tilts in 2014-15 after he was acquired from the Rangers, along with Andrew Yogan, for winger Joey Crabb.
McIlrath is a big-bodied, former first round draft pick (10th overall in 2010) that has 38 games of NHL experience and another 184 in the American League.
The 24-year-old played in 34 games for the Blueshirts last season, posting totals of 2 goals, 2 assists and 64 PIM to along with a +7 rating.
