Kero has notched 20 or more goals on two different occasions in the AHL, lighting the lamp 20 times with the Rockford IceHogs during the 2015-16 season and collecting a career-high 24 goals with the Utica Comets in 2018-19.
A standout performer at the NCAA level, the Hancock, Michigan native spent four seasons at Michigan Tech, posting 55 goals and 56 assists in 153 total contests.
