Kent Rory Simpson (born March 26, 1992) is a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender. He is currently playing with the Colorado Eagles in the ECHL while under contract to the San Antonio Rampage of the American Hockey League (AHL). Simpson was selected by the Chicago Blackhawks in the second round (58th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing careerEdit

Simpson played major junior hockey with the Everett Silvertips of the Western Hockey League (WHL). He also won a silver medal with Team Pacific at the 2009 World U-17 Hockey Challenge and represented Team Canada at the 2010 IIHF World U18 Championships.

On March 31, 2012, the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League (AHL) signed Simpson to an amateur try-out agreement,[1] allowing the goaltender to make his professional debut in the AHL before the end of the 2011–12 season. On May 29, 2012, Simpson was signed by the Chicago Blackhawks of the National Hockey League (NHL) to a three-year entry-level contract.[2]

On October 4, 2014, Simpson was traded by the Blackhawks along with Nick Leddy to the New York Islanders in exchange for Ville Pokka, T.J. Brennan and Anders Nilsson.[3]

On July 15, 2015, Simpson was signed to a one-year AHL contract with the Stockton Heat, continuing his stay in Stockton after the previous season with former ECHL club, the Stockton Thunder.[4] In the 2015–16 season, Simpson split the year between the Heat and ECHL affiliate, the Adirondack Flames. As the Heat's third choice goaltender, he recorded a 3-4 record in 11 appearances.

As a free agent in the off-season from the Heat, Simpson secured a one-year AHL contract with the San Antonio Rampage, an affiliate to the Colorado Avalanche, on July 18, 2016.[5]
