Kevin Montgomery (born April 4, 1988) is an American professional ice hockey player who currently plays for HC ’05 Banská Bystrica of the Slovak Extraliga.

Playing career[edit]

Montgomery was drafted 110th overall in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft by the Colorado Avalanche. Recruited from the United States Development program in the NAHL, Montgomery then joined Ohio State University in collegiate hockey. Midway through his freshman year, Kevin left the Buckeyes for the London Knights of the OHL for the remainder of the 2006–07 season. During the 2007–08 season, Montgomery was then named to the United States team for the 2008 World Junior Championships.[1]

Upon completing his second year with the Knights, Montgomery signed an Amateur Try-Out agreement with the Avalanche's AHL affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters on April 3, 2008, and played out the remainder of the season. Prior to the 2008–09 season, Montgomery signed a three-year entry level contract with the Avalanche on October 1, 2008. After appearing in the first five games of the AHL season with the Monsters, Montgomery was then re-assigned back to junior team the London Knights.[2]

On February 28, 2011, at the NHL Trade Deadline he was dealt by the Avalanche to the Edmonton Oilers for defenseman, Shawn Belle.[3] He was immediately re-assigned to AHL affiliate, the Oklahoma City Barons.

On June 27, 2012, as a free agent Montgomery signed a one-year contract with Scandinavian club, Lillehammer IK, of the GET-ligaen.[4] During the 2012–13, Montgomery added a stabilising presence to the Blueline of Lillehammer, adding 19 points in 41 games.

Montgomery opted to remain in Europe the following season, signing a one-year contract with Dornbirner EC of the Austrian Hockey League on May 10, 2013.[5] After a single season in Austria, on August 4, 2014, Montgomery changed European league in signing as a free agent to a one-year contract in the Slovak Extraliga with HC ’05 Banská Bystrica.
