On Monday, the Silvertips officially locked up ’15 second round pick and 2000-born forward Brett Kemp to a WHL SPA deal, continuing to stock the cupboard with pieces designed to build a solid foundation for the future.
What you need to know about Kemp: he’s had a history of putting up big numbers. Take for instance: 79 points in 31 games at the Bantam level last year. This season, he ranks 5th in scoring at the SMHL level with Yorkton: 41 points in 36 games are the current output.
He’s earned the remarks of Bil La Forge as a guy who can play a 200-foot game and is “offensively gifted.”
For Kemp, step 1: draft. Step 2: sign. Now for step 3: make the Silvertips squad out of training camp. He’s already had one kick at that can, scoring four points in this year’s training camp games and participating in the rookie game.
