Kempny will miss 4-6 months after undergoing surgery on his hamstring.

The Capitals will be without one of their top-pairing defensemen for the rest of the regular season and playoffs after Kempny underwent surgery to repair a hamstring injury that he suffered on March 20th. The Capitals acquired Nick Jensen from Detroit at the trade deadline and he will help replace Kempny on the Capitals blueline.
