Keith Kinkaid is happy with how his rookie season has gone.

Although Kinkaid lost to Tampa Bay in what was likely his final start of 2014-15, he has a 2.59 GAA and .915 save percentage in 19 games. "It's not the way I wanted to end it," Kinkaid said, "but definitely a good start (to his NHL career) so far. Hopefully, being here next year at the start would help a little bit, too. Get a few early in the year and whatnot and just help the team out in the best way possible." Look for him to continue to serve as Cory Schneider's understudy in 2015-16. While he should be solid in that role, Kinkaid won't get much more ice time next season unless Schneider runs into injury problems.

Apr 10 - 1:03 AM

Keith Kinkaid will get the start in Thursday's game against the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The 25-year-old goaltender is an average backup goaltender but he has collected wins in four of his last five decisions. Kinkaid has an overall record of 6-5-3 with a 2.50 goals-against-average and a .918 save percentage in 18 games this season. He made 26 saves in a win over Tampa in December.

Keith Kinkaid will play between the pipes on Friday.

Kinkaid has a 2.47 GAA and .918 save percentage in 16 games this season. This will probably be his final start of the 2014-15 campaign, although that's not set in stone.
Apr 3 - 11:02 AM

Keith Kinkaid allowed three goals on 32 shots in the Devils’ 3-1 loss to the Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Keith Kinkaid picked up his first career road victory in Friday's 3-1 win against Buffalo.

"It would have been better with the shutout, but I'm just happy we got the win," said Kinkaid. "Now, we've got to keep going here and finish the season strong." He allowed Buffalo's only goal on a power play with just 8:19 left in the third. Kinkaid also shook off a collision with teammate Michael Ryder in the match.
Mar 21 - 8:13 AM

Keith Kinkaid stopped 28 of 29 shots in Friday's 3-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres.

Kindkaid was perfect through two and half periods of action but he was eventually beat by Sabres' forward Matt Moulson at the 11:41 mark of the third period. The 25-year-old has been good in a limited role with the Devils this year. Kinkaid has won three consecutive decisions and four of his last five. With Cory Schneider playing so many games, don't expect Kinkaid to get many starts in the short or distant future. Kinkaid's record now improves to 5-4-3 and he has a 2.42 goals-against-average and a .919 save percentage.
Mar 20 - 9:48 PM

His save percentage is .916. He still has a way to go before you can deem him worthy of fantasy play. And keep in mind he's not going to get many starts with Schneider around.
Mar 8 - 9:01 PM

Through 13 career appearances and eight starts, all but one coming this season, Kinkaid has put together a 3-4-3 record with 24 goals against on just 234 shots. He also has five Quality Starts with no Really Bad Starts. Kinkaid has yet to face the Flyers during his young career.
Mar 8 - 4:45 PM

Keith Kinkaid (groin) is ready to rejoin the Devils' lineup.

Mar 2 - 10:29 AM

Keith Kinkaid is close to returning to action following a groin injury a week ago.

Kinkaid was worried the injury was a lot more serious than it turned out to be. "I was really worried," Kinkaid said. "It's felt better every day. The MRI was good. It just takes time. It hasn't even been a week yet and I feel pretty good. The push was fine and the split was fine. Then I guess my weight eventually fell down and I felt a little tweak," Kinkaid said when explaining what happened. "I didn't feel comfortable to finish and put the team at risk. I don't know if I could have played at my full potential there and we needed those two points. If I wasn't feeling up to it, I didn't want to hurt them." Kinkaid is 3-4-3 with a 2.59 GAA and a .915 save percentage in limited time as Cory Schneider's backup.
