Has stamped himself as one of the Swans’ best of the modern era by winning a third Bob Skilton Medal last season, continuing his amazing run of form since making the move from Hawthorn. Kennedy has never finished lower than third in the Club Champion voting. He’s racked up countless of other awards, including three All Australian honours as well as becoming the League’s best contested ball-winner. Arguably the Swans’ most influential player and that was backed up by his instrumental finals series in which the clearance machine averaged 32 disposals and seven clearances. Will take on more responsibility after being named as the stand-alone captain for 2017.

Draft history: 2006 AFL Draft 3rd round father-son selection (Hawthorn) No. 40 overall; 2009 AFL Draft traded by Hawthorn for No. 39 (Sam Grimley).

Previous AFL club: (Hawthorn 2008-09: 13 games, 1 goal).
