Keith Kinkaid will play between the pipes on Friday.

It will be just Kinkaid's fourth game this season as the Devils have leaned heavily on Cory Schneider. Kinkaid has a 2.68 GAA and .893 save percentage.
Nov 19 - 5:59 PM

Keith Kinkaid stopped 28 of 31 shots in Sunday's 4-3 overtime win over Vancouver.

The win was Kinkaid's first of the season. He made several key saves in the game, but none was better than his arm save on Canucks forward Radim Vrbata. The 26-year-old has a 1-2-0 record with a 2.68 goals-against-average and a .893 save percentage this season. Cory Schneider is the goalie to own in fantasy.

It's expected that Keith Kinkaid will get the crease on Sunday against Vancouver.

Kinkaid was told to "be prepared" and after Schneider taking the last 10 starts, this all ought to amount to Kinkaid guarding New Jersey's crease. In 22 career games and 15 starts, the young netminder has posted a 6-7-4 record with 46 goals against and a .913 save percentage. Not exactly inspiring, though Vancouver did just play in Brooklyn on Saturday.
Nov 8 - 1:41 PM

Backup goaltender Keith Kincaid could get the start in net for New Jersey Sunday.

The Bergen Record is reporting that coach John Hynes is at least thinking about it. "I think this is a week where, the way the game schedule is set up, we're going to get him a game," Hynes said. "I'm not sure if it will be [today] or not, but this will be a week he will play." Kinkaid has not played since October 13 and the Devils need to get him into a game to keep him sharp.
Nov 8 - 8:01 AM

Keith Kinkaid allowed just one goal on 18 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to Nashville.

The only goal Kinkaid allowed was a one-timer on the power play from Roman Josi. Nashville added two goals late in the third period with Kinkaid on the bench in favor of an extra attacker. The 26-year-old got the start because starter Cory Schneider was away from the team to attend to the birth of his son. Kinkaid has a 0-2-0 record with a 2.60 goals-against-average and a .886 save percentage this season. He won't have any fantasy value going forward.

Keith Kinkaid will play between the pipes on Tuesday.

Cory Schneider missed Monday's practice to be with his wife because they are expecting their first child. Kinkaid got the nod on Saturday against Washington and turned aside 22 of 26 shots in a 5-3 loss.
Oct 13 - 11:07 AM

Keith Kinkaid blocked 22 of 26 shots in the Devils’ 5-3 loss to the Capitals on Saturday night.

Corey Schneider got the night off during the team's second game in as many nights. Kinkaid will only get a handful of starts the rest of the season. He posted a 2.59 GAA and .915 SV% last season.
Oct 10 - 10:48 PM

It appears as though Keith Kinkaid will be in net for the New Jersey Devils on Saturday, not Cory Schneider.

This could be a real test for the AHL/NHL tweener, as the Washington Capitals have firepower and are opening up at home. This is an interesting back-to-back test, as the Devils are likely to lean heavily upon Schneider, but Kinkaid can influence just how extreme that goes.
Oct 10 - 1:37 PM

Keith Kinkaid has agreed to a two-year contract extension with New Jersey worth $1.45 million.

The one-way deal will earn Kinkaid $700,000 and $750,000. He had a 6-5-4 record with a .915 save percentage and a 2.59 goals-against average in 19 appearances this past year. He doesn't have any fantasy value behind workhorse netminder Cory Schneider.
Apr 13 - 3:22 PM

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 - 10:51 AM

Keith Kinkaid made 27 stops on 31 shots but the Devils fell 4-3 in overtime to the Bolts on Thursday night.

Kinkaid falls to 6-5-4 this season with a .915 save percentage and 2.59 goals against average. He provided solid relief to Cory Schneider, but the team in front has not given their goaltenders much help.
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.
Apr 9 - 5:59 PM

Keith Kinkaid made 31 saves on 33 shots to earn a 3-2 shootout win over the Montreal Canadiens Friday night in New Jersey.

Kinkaid gave a rare break to Corey Schneider Friday night and was lights out stopping all but two shots including both shootout attempts he faced. The win brings his season record to 6-5-3 and this may have been his last start of the 2014-2015 season.
Apr 3 - 10:03 PM

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.
