Player Bio

After limited opportunities in three seasons at Collingwood, Kennedy played 15 matches (including the rst 10) in his rst season at the Demons. Recruited alongside Tomas Bugg to add competitiveness and a touch of experience, Kennedy lled important roles across half-forward and the mid eld. The 22-year-old is tough at the footy, links up well with his
run and carry and has little hesitation when charged with the responsibility of kicking a goal. The speedy mid elder kicked 13 goals to prove his worth.

Previous AFL club: Collingwood (2013-15: 25 games, 15 goals). Draft history: 2012 NAB AFL Draft 1st round selection (Collingwood) No. 19 overall; 2015 NAB AFL Draft traded by Collingwood for Jeremy Howe and Jimmy Toumpas.
