Keith Kinkaid will get the start in goal for New Jersey Sunday.

The Devils played on Saturday night and travel to Chicago so coach John Hynes wisely split up his goalies and Kinkaid will play for the first time in a week. He is 3-1-1 with a 2.88 GAA and a .903 save percentage. He may not be the best selection in DFS this day.
Nov 12 - 7:11 AM

Keith Kinkaid stopped 30 of 34 shots in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Calgary Flames on Sunday night.

Kinkaid had a few big stops tonight but was average in goal for the most part. Despite getting extended looks with Schneider struggling, Kinkaid is not worth a spot on your roster. His record drops to 3-2-1 on the year.

Keith Kinkaid will be between the pipes Sunday when the Devils visit Calgary.

Kinkaid gave up four goals on 27 shots in his last outing to Ottawa but managed to get the shootout win. He is 3-1 with a 2.63 GAA and a .910 save percentage. Start him if you normally would.
Nov 5 - 10:06 AM

Keith Kinkaid allowed four goals on 27 shots in Friday's 5-4 shootout win over the Senators.

The Devils were up 4-2 with under 1:30 remaining in regulation, but they allowed the Sens to score twice to force overtime. Thankfully for the Devils, they were able to win the game in the shootout. Kinkaid has a 3-1-0 record with a 2.63 goals-against-average and a .910 save percentage this season.
Oct 27 - 11:17 PM

Keith Kinkaid will be the Devils' starting goaltender on Friday.

Cory Schneider (lower body) might be available, but even if he is, he'll be serving as the backup goaltender. This decision gives the Devils some certainty in net ahead of the contest and allows them to ease Schneider back into the lineup if he is healthy enough to be in the lineup.
Oct 26 - 1:55 PM

Keith Kinkaid allowed three goals on 33 shots in New Jersey’s 3-0 loss to the San Jose Sharks.

Kinkaid will be making a lot more starts in the near future because starter Cory Schneider (lower body) was placed on injured reserve earlier in the day. Tonight’s loss was the first of the season for Kinkaid. He now owns a 2-1-0 record with a 2.13 goals-against-average and a .932 save percentage this season. He could have some short-term fantasy value in standard leagues.
Oct 20 - 10:29 PM

Keith Kinkaid will play between the pipes Friday night.

That was the plan anyways, but it was made a more obvious decision when Cory Schneider suffered a lower-body injury on Thursday. With Schneider unavailable, Scott Wedgewood will serve as Kinkaid's backup.
Oct 20 - 2:55 PM

Keith Kinkaid stopped all nine shots he faced in Thursday's 5-4 overtime win over the Ottawa Senators.

Kinkaid entered the game at the start of the third period, after Cory Schneider was ruled out because of a lower-body injury. The Devils found themselves down 4-2 at the time, but they found a way to come back and win in the extra frame. Kinkaid improved his record to 2-0-0 in the process. He has a 1.48 goals-against-average and a .950 save percentage this season. He'll get a lot more work if Schneider's forced to miss an extended period of time.
Oct 19 - 11:16 PM

Keith Kinkaid will start on either Thursday or Friday.

Devils coach John Hynes hasn't named his starter for either contest, but he did say that Cory Schneider wouldn't be used in both games. The likely scenario is that Schneider will start on Thursday against Ottawa and Kinkaid will face San Jose Friday night, but we'll see.
Oct 19 - 4:32 AM

Keith Kinkaid made 29 saves in a 3-2 win over the New York Rangers Saturday night.

Kinkaid got the start after Cory Schneider started Friday night against Washington. The netminder didn't disappoint in his first start of the NHL season.

Keith Kinkaid will get the start Saturday night against the Rangers

Cory Schneider started Friday night's game against the Capitals, so Kinkaid will get the call for the second of the Devils' back-to-back contests this weekend. It will be Kinkaid's first NHL action this season.
Oct 14 - 9:29 AM

Keith Kinkaid is expected to play between the pipes on Saturday.

Cory Schneider will start on Friday, so unless something unusual happens in Friday's contests, it seems unlikely that the Devils will alter their plans. This would be Kinkaid's first start of the 2017-18 season.
Oct 13 - 12:03 PM

Keith Kinkaid is expected to make his first start of the 2017-18 season either Friday night against the Capitals or Saturday against the Rangers.

Kinkaid's playing time is likely to be rather sporadic, especially if Cory Schneider is healthy and playing well. Kinkaid can be a decent streaming option in leagues permitting daily moves and DFS play when the matchup is favorable, but avoid him in most seasonal formats.
Oct 11 - 12:26 AM

Keith Kinkaid is projected to make his season debut this coming week.

New Jersey plays back-to-back on Friday and Saturday against Washington and the New York Rangers, respectively. Kinkaid could get the nod for one of those contests.
