c made 32 saves on 34 shots to help the Wild beat Nashville 4-2 on Thursday night.

Kuemper is now undefeated since late January... although he's only played one game. Devan Dubnyk started 38 straight games and will get the workload in the playoffs. Kuemper will be on-call in case of injury with his 14-12-2 record, .906 save percentage and 2.59 goals against average.

Darcy Kuemper will get call for Thursday's game against Nashville.

Devan Dubnyk started 38 straight games for the Wild and he'll finally get a night off, so that Kuemper can play in his first match since Jan. 20. Kuemper's last start came in a 4-3 overtime loss to San Jose back on Jan. 6. He has a 13-12-2 record to go with a .904 save percentage and a 2.62 goals-against average. Dubnyk will be back in the crease for Saturday's regular-season finale against St. Louis.

Darcy Kuemper, Christian Folin, and Jordan Leopold will each be scratched on Tuesday night against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Unfortunately, there simply isn't any fantasy value between these three players. Kuemper hasn't played since Jan. 20th, while Folin and Leopold do not contribute to the score sheet in a significant manner.

Darcy Kuemper, Christian Folin, and Jordan Schroeder will each be scratched on Friday night against the Anaheim Ducks.

Kuemper hasn't seen NHL ice since Jan. 20th, and it doesn't seem likely that'll change any time soon. Neither Schroeder nor Folin have made significant fantasy impacts for the Wild this season.

Darcy Kuemper, Jordan Schroeder, and Christian Folin were made late scratches against the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday night.

Kuemper hasn't played in an NHL game since January 20th, and that's unlikely to change any time soon with how well Devan Dubnyk has played. Neither Schroeder nor Folin have made significant fantasy impacts for the Wild this season.
Mar 8 - 6:52 PM

Darcy Kuemper is a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against Washington.

It's a little unusual for a goaltender to be a healthy scratch, but the Wild will dress Devan Dubnyk and Niklas Backstrom against the Caps. Kuemper hasn't played in an NHL game since January 20th. Marco Scandella and Nino Niederreiter will both miss the game due to injury.

Darcy Kuemper will be scratched against the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday night.

It appears that it is Niklas Backstrom's turn to backup Devan Dubnyk. Kuemper's value is directly tied to Dubnyk's success, so as long as he keeps on stonewalling the league, Kuemper will not see much of any ice time.

Darcy Kuemper will backup Devan Dubnyk on Sunday night versus the Dallas Stars.

Coach Yeo has been rotating backup duties between Kuemper and Niklas Backstrom. But make no mistake, it's Dubnyk's crease until otherwise noted. Kuemper is 13-12-2 with 65 goals against in 29 games this season.

Darcy Kuemper, Michael Keranen, and Stu Bickel will be scratched versus the Edmonton Oilers on Friday night.

In a very real way, each player is merely an extra body at the moment. Dubnyk owns the crease, Keranen is a 25 year old rookie forward from Sweden, and Bickel is a career AHL-NHL tweener. Until noted otherwise Kuemper's value is directly tied to Dubnyk's succes. Keranen had nine goals and 32 points in 52 games for AHL Iowa this season, and Bickel has played just nine games this season. Though he has 46 PIMs in that time.

Darcy Kuemper will backup Devan Dubnyk on Saturday night against Carolina.

Whether or not this is a sign that Kuemper may get the chance to get his starting job back, one cannot say. After all, Dubnyk has been a brick wall during his first dozen starts in State of Hockey. But bear this development in mind as you follow along with the drama. Kuemper is 13-12-2 with 65 goals against in 29 games this season.

Darcy Kuemper will be a healthy scratch on Thursday night against the Florida Panthers.

With Devan Dubnyk suddenly realizing he's more brick wall than man, and Niklas Backstrom healthy enough to serve as a backup, Kuemper and his owners will have to remain patient as Minnesota's front office figures out how they'll proceed. On the season, the 24 year old Kuemper owns a 13-12-2 record with 65 goals against in 29 games.

The Minnesota Wild have recalled Darcy Kuemper from his conditioning stint in the AHL.

Beat writer Michael Russo mentioned that he wouldn't be surprised if Kuemper gets a start on Tuesday. The 24-year-old has seen action in just one NHL game since January 8th. After getting off to a hot start, Kuemper cooled off significantly which forced the Wild to acquire Devan Dubnyk from Arizona.
