Keith Kinkaid turned aside 28 of 29 shots in New Jersey's 4-1 win over Montreal Thursday night.
"I felt sharp," said Kinkaid. "I came into training camp in good shape again. I just want to build off of last year, being my best year." He had a 2.64 GAA and .916 save percentage in 26 games last season. The tentative plan is for him to start in 20%-25% of the Devils' games this season, but he could potentially get potentially end up above that range if he starts the campaign strong and builds from there.

Keith Kinkaid is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Kinkaid is coming off a two-year, $1.45 million deal and he'll likely get a bigger cap hit this time around. He's coming off a solid season where he posted a 2.64 GAA and .916 save percentage in 26 contests with the lowly Devils. New Jersey might have some interest in re-signing him, but Kinkaid does have aspirations to become a starter, which might lead to him exploring other opportunities.
Apr 13 - 10:22 AM

Keith Kinkaid turned aside 16 of 20 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Islanders on Saturday.

Kinkaid surrendered a pair of goals on just six shots in the third period. He has lost five of his last six games.
Apr 8 - 8:39 PM

Keith Kinkaid will be in net against the Islanders on Saturday.

He comes into the match with an 8-12-3 record along with a 2.58 GAA and .920 save percentage this season.
Apr 8 - 4:16 PM

Keith Kinkaid stopped all 35 shots he faced in a 1-0 overtime win over the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday.

Kinkaid made several great stops, first denying Couturier's stuff-in attempt, then stopping Gostisbehere's huge point shot. He also made a great poke check on Valtteri Filppula before the Flyer had a chance to put the puck in the net. Kinkaid has now given up two goals or less in six of his last eight starts for the Devils. He has been strong down the stretch but we wouldn't expect him to challenge Schneider for the starting role next season. The win improves his record to 8-12-3 with a 2.58 goals against average and .920 save percentage.
Apr 4 - 10:15 PM

Keith Kinkaid will be in the crease for Tuesday's game against Philadelphia.

The Devils have been rotating their goaltenders for a while now and that will continue even though Kinkaid has gone winless in his past four outings (0-3-1). Fortunately, his last win came against the Flyers on Mar. 16.
Apr 3 - 2:11 PM

Keith Kinkaid allowed two goals on 38 shots in Friday's 2-1 loss to the New York Islanders.

Kinkaid gave up one goal at even-strength and one goal while his team was shorthanded in the loss. He's now dropped each of his last four games, but he's given up two goals in each of his last two games. He has a 7-12-3 record with a 2.70 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage. He isn't worth adding in any fantasy leagues.
Mar 31 - 10:37 PM

Keith Kinkaid will play between the pipes on Friday.

The Devils are splitting their goaltending duties for their upcoming set of back-to-back contests with Kinkaid getting the first half of it. He has a 2.73 GAA and .914 save percentage in 23 games this season.
Mar 30 - 2:12 PM

Keith Kinkaid allowed two goals on 32 shots in Sunday's 2-1 OT loss to the Dallas Stars.

Kinkaid stopped all 24 shots he faced at even-strength, but Stars forwards Ales Hemsky (third period) and Tyler Seguin (overtime) both found the back of the net on the power play. The Devils goalie has a 7-11-3 record with a 2.73 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage this season. He isn't worth owning in fantasy leagues.
Mar 26 - 8:28 PM

Keith Kinkaid will get the start against Dallas on Sunday.

It will be Kinkaid's fourth start in the last seven games as they have now been officially eliminated from playoff contention. Kinkaid is 7-11-2 this season with a 2.77 GAA and a .913 save percentage. It's awfully hard to recommend him in DFS games on Sunday.
Mar 26 - 9:07 AM

Although Keith Kinkaid has started in three of the Devils' last five games, Devils coach John Hynes isn't committing to him getting roughly half of the remaining nine starts.

"We’ll see," Hynes said. "The objective, like everything, is we want to give guys opportunities but it also comes down to performance, too. We’ll give guys opportunities as long as they play well and deserve them. We’re not just going to keep giving guys opportunities if they’re not going to perform at a level that warrants them being in a game all the time." Kinkaid has done fairly well recently while Cory Schneider has struggled with a 2.97 GAA and .897 save percentage in seven March contests. The fact that it's even a reasonable possibility that Kinkaid might start in four or more of the Devils' remaining games is big for the backup goaltender and another knock on Schneider's disappointing campaign.
Mar 24 - 9:56 AM

Keith Kinkaid allowed three goals on 29 shots in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Devils scored the game's first goal, but they eventually allowed Toronto to score the next three. Kinkaid now owns a 7-11-2 record with a 2.77 goals-against-average and a .913 save percentage this season. He isn't worth owning in any fantasy formats.
Mar 23 - 10:47 PM

Keith Kinkaid allowed five goals on 42 shots in Friday's 6-4 loss to the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Devils scored the first goal of the game, but Pittsburgh ended the frame with a 3-2 lead and they never looked back. Kinkaid has now dropped five of his last six decisions. He has a 7-10-2 record with a 2.76 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage in 2016-17.
Mar 17 - 10:36 PM

The New Jersey Devils will start Keith Kinkaid Friday night.

Devils coach John Hynes wants to see how Kinkaid responds to the workload after using him in Thursday's contest. Kinkaid turned aside 17 of 19 shots in a 6-2 win over Philadelphia.
