Darcy Kuemper just couldn't hang onto the lead the Wild gave him through the first period of Saturday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Kings.

Kuemper was up 2-0 heading into the second period, however he'd go on to save just 32 of 36 shots. The Kings scored four of the remaining five goals over the final 40-plus minutes, dropping his record to 4-2-2 on the season.
Jan 7 - 7:24 PM

Darcy Kuemper will face the Kings on Saturday.

Through seven games of action this season, Kuemper has posted a 4-2-1 record with a .904 save percentage and a 3.01 GAA. You may wish to find a more favorable matchup.
Jan 6 - 8:07 PM

Coach Bruce Boudreau intends to start backup Darcy Kuemper during Minnesota's three-game road trip.

The Wild play three games over a four-day span. That could place him in line to face Los Angeles on Saturday if Devan Dubnyk is going to play against San Jose Thursday and versus Anaheim on Sunday.
Jan 5 - 10:14 AM

Darcy Kuemper allowed four goals on 35 shots in Friday's 7-4 win over the New York Rangers.

The win extends Minnesota's winning streak to a franchise-record 10 games. The Rangers got the first goal of the game, but Minnesota surged ahead after netting five goals in the second period. Kuemper has a 4-2-1 record with a 3.11 goals-against-average and a .904 save percentage.

The Wild will entrust Darcy Kuemper to guard their crease against the Rangers on Friday night.

The veteran backup has been mediocre at best this season with a 3-2-1 record and a .907 save percentage and 18 goals against. He has just two games with fewer than three goals against, which were to Ottawa and Arizona. So you may wish to find a more favorable matchup.

Darcy Kuemper made 27 of 28 stops during Saturday's 4-1 win over the Coyotes, raising the Wild's winning streak to seven games.

Darcy Kuemper says he's excited to get a start on Saturday.

Kuemper has played sparingly this year because he's the backup and because Devan Dubnyk's been so good. "I’m looking forward to the start," Kuemper said. "It’s awesome watching all the success [starting goalie Devan Dubnyk is] having and all the success the team is having. It’s fun coming to the rink right now, and I’m excited to get the chance to contribute to it." He hasn't started a game since Nov. 29.

Darcy Kuemper will get the nod for Minnesota on Saturday.

Devan Dubnyk has been one of the league's top goaltenders so far this season, so Kuemper hasn't got much ice time. He's been a mixed bag when he has played with his 2-2-1 record, 3.36 GAA, and .897 save percentage in five games.

Darcy Kuemper gave up five goals on only 35 shots Tuesday night as the Minnesota Wild lost a 5-4 contest to the Vancouver Canucks.

Kuemper has only four previous games this season, but it is nevertheless notable that this was his second-worst outing. He dropped a 6-3 contest to the Islanders October 23rd with a save percentage of .844, so it is best to wait for lead goalie when considering the Wild.

Darcy Kuemper will get the nod on Tuesday versus Vancouver.

He has a 2-1-1 record this campaign with a 2.94 goals-against average and a .908 save percentage this year. Devan Dubnyk started three games in four nights last week, so he will get to watch from the bench.

Minnesota goalie Darcy Kuemper made 29 saves in Dallas Monday night but the Wild took a 3-2 overtime loss.

Kuemper was making only his fourth start of the season. He is now 2-1-1, with a goals-against average of 2.94 and a .908 save percentage. While he has proven to be a competent backup in past seasons, and may well come on this season, he doesn't merit much consideration in fantasy play.

Darcy Kuemper will be between the pipes for the Wild on Monday.

This will be his fourth start of the season. He has a 2-1-0 record with a 2.93 goals-against average and a .908 save percentage in his previous outings.
Mon, Nov 21, 2016 01:05:00 PM

Darcy Kuemper made 35 saves on 36 shots to help the Wild beat the Senators on Sunday.

Kuemper improves to 2-1 this season with a 2.93 goals against average and .908 save percentage. Kuemper has allowed three, five and then one goal in his three starts.
Sun, Nov 13, 2016 11:44:00 PM

Confirming an earlier note, Darcy Kuemper will indeed face Ottawa on Sunday afternoon.

Kuemper hasn't inspired much this season with his play. But over the last few seasons he's proven to be a competent backup with a .910 save percentage and 2.52 GAA in 86 games. Considering today's short slate of games, he could be a sneaky play in the week's finale.
