The result gives Kerry improved world standing points ahead of the World Championships in Boston, USA, which will take place from March 28 to April 3.
Finishing ahead of Kerry on the podium was Swedish athlete Alexander Majorov in first and Valtter Virtanen of Finland in second.
After the event, Kerry reflected on his performance.
"Not the skate I was looking for, but I got the job done and it's another experience leading into Worlds next month."
