Kemp, 27, scored nine points (one goal, eight assists), served 22 penalty minutes and posted a plus-5 rating in 22 games this season with the AHL’s Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins. Since 2005-06, the 5-foot-11, 197-pound blueliner registered 93 points (14 goals, 79 assists) with 126 penalty minutes in 174 career regular season games in the AHL.

Anyone know anything about this guy?

His history:

He was undrafted and played 4 years at Mercyhurst College in the NCAA. After graduating he played for the Missouri River Otters of the UHL. He then played for the Reading Royals of the ECHL before playing for a large numbers of teams in the AHL including the Peoria Rivermen, Iowa Stars, Milwaukee Admirals, Bridgeport Sound Tigers, Manchester Monarchs, and Springfield Falcons. Pittsburgh signed Kemp to a one year contract this past summer and now have dealt him to Montreal for a conditional draft pick.

His stats from hockeyDB.com:

He definitely looks like a career minor league player to me.

Well, there goes Pittsburgh's conditional draft pick.

FYI, the "condition" was that if Montreal re-signed Kemp to a new contract, we would have to give the Pens our 7th round pick in the 2010 draft.

But since Herr Kemp is now off to the Fatherland to ply his trade, the Pens get squat, which is pretty much what he was worth in the first place.

Tschau TJ, and don't forget to write.

PS: What's an Arseburger anyways? Sure doesn't sound very appetizing to me.

Hey, I cover the gammit from "Arrogh'e *****" to "Zoccola, and everything in between Mauro.

I consider myself a well-versed, multi-lingual vulgarian.

So let me finish by saying "Callate, Vendejo".

Pardon my French.
