2018 Fantasy Outlook
Kempny had a rollercoaster season in 2017-18. Failing to garner consistent playing time with the Blackhawks, the rearguard ended up as one of the more impactful trade-deadline acquisitions in recent history, becoming a mainstay, top-four cog for the Capitals during their Stanley Cup run. Kempny was rewarded with a four-year, $10 million contract extension and he is expected to return alongside John Carlson for the near future. An offseason to get further acclimated to his new surroundings and consistent top-four minutes could set the stage for better offensive totals in 2017-18, but his fantasy value remains somewhat limited until he can find a higher gear.

January 24, 2019
Kempny registered an assist and three shots during Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Maple Leafs.
ANALYSIS
Kempny enters the All-Star break on a high note with his 11th assist and 16th point in 47 games. The 28-year-old also boasts a sterling plus-20 rating and is delivering solid returns following a four-year, $10 million extension signed in June of 2018. The Czech defenseman is worth rostering in deeper formats as long as his offensive production doesn't completely drop off.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Kempny was solid in his 2016-17 rookie campaign, notching eight points (two goals, six assists), 67 shots on goal and 76 hits in 50 games with the Blackhawks. The Slovakian blueliner should establish himself as a regular member of Chicago’s lineup this season; while he should improve upon his numbers from a season ago, there’s no reason to believe his expanded role will translate to fantasy appeal in 2017-18.
