Kempny (leg) indicated that he will begin rehabbing his torn hamstring sometime next week and will be ready for training camp, Chris Kuc of The Athletic reports. Kempny's injury late in the season will likely go down as a major factor in Washington's early end to its Stanley Cup title defense. The 28-year-old defender was having a marvelous first full season with the Capitals, posting six goals, 25 points and a scintillating plus-24 rating in 71 games before having his season cut short during an altercation with Tampa Bay's Cedric Paquette. Keep checking back for updates during the offseason.

At this point, fantasy owners should probably consider the blueliner week-to-week at best, which could see him miss the remainder of the regular season, at a minimum.
Kempny (lower body) will not play in Friday's matchup with the Wild, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports. It was known heading into Friday's game that Kempny will miss some time. Washington has adequate depth on the blue line, so a recall may not be necessary.
