Keith Kinkaid may be in line to be Cory Schneider's backup next season.

GM Lou Lamoriello is looking for Kinkaid to take the role even though the team signed Scott Clemmensen to a one-year, two-way contract on July 1. "I'm just happy they're going to give me an opportunity, but nothing is set in stone," Kinkaid said. "I still have to battle Clemmensen for the backup job. I'm just glad I have the opportunity to do so. It's going to be a great competition in camp and I look forward to it."
