2018 Fantasy Outlook
Kempe is unique because he didn't reach the NHL until he was 28 years old. Perhaps the Swede could have arrived sooner as Philadelphia's 2007 fifth-round (122nd overall) draft pick, but he opted to play overseas for nearly a decade, jumping around between various Swedish circuits as well as Russia's Kontinental Hockey League (KHL). Kempe posted two goals and two assists over his first 18 NHL games and maintained a 0.78 points-per-game pace with AHL Tucson in 2017-18. Arizona is committed to him for at least one more year at $700,000, and while he'll likely start in the minors, Kempe remains a valuable depth option for the young Coyotes. Read Past Outlooks

Kempe was recalled from AHL Tucson on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Kempe was called up to the top level since Josh Archibald has been hit with a two-game suspension. The Swede's looked comfortable with the AHL's Roadrunners -- he's crafted three goals and six assists over eight games -- but the winger likely won't see enough ice time at hockey's highest level to warrant fantasy consideration.
