Kempny is expected to miss 6-to-8 months after undergoing surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon.

Kempny had surgery for a torn hamstring in 2019 and struggled through most of 2020 and will now most, if not all of 2021 after suffering a torn Achilles’ tendon while training in the Czech Republic. After finding out about Kempny's injury, the Capitals re-signed Brendan Dillon to a four-year extension. Dillon filled in for Kempny next to John Carlson on the top-pair last year.

Kempny (hamstring) will make his season debut on Friday.

Kempny missed the first eight games of the season but will play Friday vs. the Rangers. With Jonas Siegenthaler playing well on the top-pair, Kempny will get eased back in on the third-pair with Radko Gudas but could return to his minute-eating ways in a quick hurry. Kempny had 25 points (6G / 19A), 111 shots and 84 hits while playing 19:11 ATOI in 71 games a season ago.
