Adrian Kempe (born 13 September 1996) is a Swedish professional ice hockey player currently playing for the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League (NHL). Kempe was selected by the Kings in the first round (29th overall) of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft.
Kempe was born in Kramfors, Sweden, where he also grew up. He made his Swedish Hockey League debut playing with Modo Hockey during the 2013–14 season. At the conclusion of the 2014–15 season, in which he recorded a career high 17 points in 50 games with cellar-dwelling Modo, Kempe signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League (NHL) on 15 April 2015. He was then immediately assigned to their AHL affiliate, the Manchester Monarchs, for their playoff pursuit in successfully capturing the Calder Cup. The following season the Monarchs were renamed the Ontario Reign.
Kempe began the 2016–17 season in the AHL with the Reign but was recalled to the NHL on 15 February 2017. He made his NHL debut the following day against the Arizona Coyotes. He recorded his first NHL point on 21 February by assisting on Tyler Toffoli's goal against the Colorado Avalanche and scored his first goal on 11 March against the Washington Capitals.
