He’s a depth signing for the new AHL farm club, but he does apparently have a two-way contract that will pay him $100,000 if he makes the big club.
According to the Reading Eagle “A product of Mercyhurst College, Kemp signed an ECHL deal with Reading in 2005 after going undrafted. He scored 40 points in 60 games with the Royals, was named to the ECHL all-star and all-rookie squads and received call-ups from four different AHL teams.”
He’s an offensive defender (5-33-38 in 65gp), 5-11 and 200 pounds. Kemp finished tied for fifth among league D-men in assists and was named to the AHL all-star game.
