Keith Kinkaid allowed four goals on 25 shots during his 40-minute relief effort in Anaheim on Friday night.
Kinkaid replaced starter Cory Schneider to begin the second period with the score tied at one, but poor play by both Kinkaid and his Devils teammates at large conspired to create an embarrassing 5-1 loss. He falls to 1-3-3 with 17 goals against in 195 shots faced on the season. Jan 17 - 12:51 AM

Keith Kinkaid began the second period in Anaheim in place of Cory Schneider on Friday night.

Kinkaid walks into a 1-1 tie for his ninth appearance of the season. In his eight previous appearances, including five starts, the rookie netminder has a 1-2-3 record with 13 goals against in 170 shots faced.

Keith Kinkaid stopped 28 of 31 shots in Friday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Islanders.

Kinkaid has posted some decent numbers this season, but he doesn't get enough starts to be fantasy relevant. The 25-year-old rookie has given the Devils a capable backup option behind Cory Schneider. Kinkaid has a 1-2-3 record with a 2.16 goals-against-average and a .924 save percentage. He

Look for Keith Kinkaid to start on Friday.

Kinkaid has a 2.01 GAA and .928 save percentage in seven contests in 2014-15. This will be his first start since Jan. 2 when he turned aside 22 of 25 shots in a 4-2 loss to Montreal.
Jan 9 - 12:24 PM

New Jersey G Keith Kinkaid made 22 saves in the Devils' 4-2 loss to the visiting Montreal Canadiens Friday night.

Kinkaid's loss was his first of the season and brought his record to 1-2-2 in seven appearances. His goals-against average has now broken the 2.00 plateau (he's at 2.01) and his save percentage is .928. He wasn't bad Friday and it's likely the Devils will start using him a bit more. Cory Schneider has had the vast majority of New Jersey starts so far.

Keith Kinkaid will start on Friday against the Montreal Canadiens.

Kinkaid has a 1.75 GAA and .939 save percentage in six games this season. Cory Schneider has been getting the vast majority of the Devils' starts, which stands in the way of Kinkaid having much fantasy value.
Jan 2 - 11:11 AM

Keith Kinkaid is in the record books as all of his first three starts have gone into a shootout.

Kinkaid picked up his first NHL win on Friday as he stopped all three Lightning shooters after overtime ended. He is 1-1-2 this season as he has also played twice in relief of Cory Schneider. Look for the netminder to see more action as the season progresses.

Keith Kinkaid earned his first NHL win by stopping 26-of-28 shots in the Devils 3-2 SO win over Tampa Bay on Friday night.

The 25 year-old was making his third start in the NHL and helped his team snap a five game losing streak. Even more impressive is the fact that the rookie got the win over a strong Tampa Bay side and stopped all three Lightning shooters in the overtime. Perhaps the Devils will give Cory Schneider a few more days off if they get performances like these from the backups.

Confirming an earlier report, Keith Kinkaid will indeed get his third start of the season Friday night against Tampa Bay.

In three starts and five games played, he's allowed just five goals on 86 shots so far this season.

Keith Kinkaid will probably start for the New Jersey Devils on Friday.

It's a rare night off for Cory Schneider, who has already made 30 starts this season. Kinkaid is still searching for his first NHL victory after turning aside 31 of 33 shots in regulation in a 3-2 shootout loss on Monday. Cory Schneider should be back between the pipes on Saturday.

Devils backup goalie Keith Kinkaid, playing in his home town of Long Island, turned in a strong performance Monday night, stopping 31 of the 33 shots he faced in regulation and overtime before the Islanders recorded a 3-2 win in a shootout.

In five appearances this season, Kinkaid is 0-1-2. His goals-against average is an impressive 1.71. His save percentage isn't bad either, at .942. There's no point in picking him up for your fantasy team, though, since he doesn't play nearly enough. Cory Schneider gets the vast majority of starts for the Devils. Kinkaid's effort Monday night against the Isles was reminiscent of his start against the Blackhawks last week, when he blocked 37 of the 39 shots he faced in what also was a 3-2 shootout loss for the Devils.

Keith Kinkaid will play between the pipes on Monday against the New York Islanders.

The Islanders are hosting the game and Kinkaid is from Long Island, so this is a chance for him to play there before the Islanders move to Brooklyn next season. "My dad grew up an Islander fan and I was an Islander fan and I've been here quite a bit," said Kinkaid. "It's pretty fun to be able to get to play in the arena." Kinkaid has a 1.64 GAA and .943 save percentage in four contests in 2014-15.

Keith Kinkaid earned his first start of the season in goal for the Devils Tuesday, but he was saddled with a 3-2 shootout loss despite blocking 37 of 39 shots against Chicago.

Kinkaid had appeared in two prior games this year, but hadn't received a starting opportunity until Tuesday. Since he was called up from the minors to start this game, it's likely he'll be sent back down later this week.

The New Jersey Devils have called up Keith Kinkaid.

That's a bit of a surprise given that Cory Schneider has played in almost every game this season. Kinkaid was called up from the minors Tuesday afternoon while Scott Clemmensen was sent to the AHL. If you're wondering why the Devils would call up Kinkaid to make the start rather than just use Clemmensen given that he was already on the roster, the answer is likely rust related. Clemmensen hasn't played since Nov. 22 while Kinkaid has gotten an opportunity to work in the minors.

Keith Kinkaid has been called up by the New Jersey Devils.

Scott Clemmensen was sent to the minors so that he could get some playing time in the AHL. Cory Schneider has started in 27 of 28 games this season, so Kinkaid and Clemmensen have been taking turns warming the bench at the NHL level.
