Meet A Maverick: Kyle Schempp

Meet A Maverick: Kyle Schempp

January 7, 2017

By Fred Liggett

When Mavericks hockey fans cheer this season about a wonderful result by the home team one can bet new Mavs’ forward Kyle Schempp was a part of it. An example of this happened in a New Year’s Eve game that the Mavs won 3-2 over Quad City. One of the Mavericks goals came from Reed Seckel who was fed the puck by Schempp after he stole the puck at center ice from an opposing player.

“Schemper,” as he is called by his new teammates, is a talented forward with a bright future in the sport of hockey. This is his first full season as a pro hockey player. Schemper grew up a Detroit Red Wings fan but now is a big NY Islanders fan, being a part of their organization. He hails from Saginaw, Michigan. Both his mom and dad live there along with his dad's side of the family, and are rooting him on from home.

Schemper's favorite hockey memory so far was while a junior in college winning the WCHA Championship. He went to Fairfield University where he majored in Wildlife Biology. Schemper first put on a pair of skates at the age of three. If not in pro hockey today he feels he would be working in the outdoors somewhere. He likes to hunt and fish and feels he would be a wildlife Biologist some place. 

Schemper enjoys playing cards and watching movies as a couple of ways he spends his time while on the road with the Mavericks. Yes, he cooks and when he does it's usually venison. Following his playing days, he hopes to be remembered as someone who works hard, day in and day out. Schemper likes to explore the Kansas City area, and with only having been here one month this rookie knows there is plenty more to see.

Check out Kyle Schempp and the rest of the Mavericks when they host rival Wichita Thunder on Saturday, January 7. The Mavericks and Thunder, two long-time CHL rivals, will start having fun when the puck drops at 7:05 p.m. inside the Silverstein Eye Centers Arena.
