Mario Kempe shows off some skills ahead of Coyotes’ fan fest
We have all heard of the Spin-O-rama. How about the Triple Tornado?
There must be some sort of nickname for the move Arizona Coyotes forward Mario Kempe was seen pulling off on the internet.
A video emerged on Facebook of Kempe pulling a triple twist while holding the puck in midair on his stick blade before flinging it into the net.
The video shows the skill level and coordination of a seasoned vet, however 2018 will only be Kempe’s second season in the NHL.
The 29-year-old made his debut last season posting four points in 18 games with a plus/minus rating of -1.
In 47 games with the Tucson Roadrunners Kempe scored 37 points with 18 goals and 19 assists. He spent the previous three seasons with Vityaz Podolsk of the KHL.
The Coyotes are hosting a fan festival on Sept. 8 at Gila River Arena. Preseason starts Sept. 16 against the Vegas Golden Knights.
