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. Nov 30 - 1:08 AM

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.
Nov 29 - 2:54 PM

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.
Nov 21 - 1:05 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.

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.
Nov 13 - 3:30 PM

Darcy Kuemper will probably be in goal against Ottawa on Sunday afternoon.

Kuemper is off to a rough start this season with eight goals against in two games played. His career against the Senators, 29 saves on 32 shots, isn't encouraging either. But with such a short slate on Sunday, he still may be worth a spot-start if you're looking to turn the tide in goalie stats.
Nov 12 - 6:38 PM

Look for Darcy Kuemper to get a start at some point this weekend.

The Wild are playing in Philadelphia on Saturday and in Ottawa on Sunday and they have to get their backup goalie some game action. "All good backup goalies, their practices are their games," Boudreau said. "They’ve got to be ready. He practiced really good this week, so I think he’ll be ready. His history is he’s a good goaltender, so I think he’ll continue to be good." Kuemper hasn't started a game since Oct. 23. He has a 1-1-0 record with a 4.00 goals-against-average and a .871 save percentage.
Nov 12 - 11:40 AM

Darcy Kuemper allowed five yoals on 32 shots in a 6-3 loss to the New York Islanders on Sunday.

Kuemper's record falls back to .500 on the season. The 26-year-old has now allowed eight goals through two games this season.

Darcy Kuemper is getting the start in goal against the Islanders Sunday evening.

Kuemper is coming off a 6-3 win over Los Angeles last week. The Islanders are rested so this will be a decent test for Kuemper.
Oct 23 - 12:36 PM

Darcy Kuemper turned aside 27 of 30 shots in Tuesday's 6-3 win over the Los Angeles Kings.

This was his first start of the regular season. Kuemper got some help early on, as the Kings hit three posts in the first period. The Wild's backup goalie won't play very much unless starter Devan Dubnyk gets injured at some point. Kuemper has no fantasy value in standard leagues.
Oct 19 - 12:17 AM

Darcy Kuemper will get the call for Minnesota on Tuesday night.

He will start against Los Angeles in his season debut after Devan Dubnyk posted a win and a loss in the first two games of the year for the Wild.
Oct 18 - 12:48 PM

Don't be shocked if Darcy Kuemper is traded on Monday or Tuesday.

There's rumors surrounding Kuemper right now and in particular there's a chance San Jose might want him as a backup. Obviously it's entirely possible that nothing will come of it, but the fact that Wild third-string goalie Alex Stalock is still on the roster is a little interesting.
Oct 10 - 10:25 AM

Darcey Kuemper faced only two shots in the first period before giving up two goals on 13 shots in the second. The Minnesota Wild lost the 2-0 contest Tuesday night against the Colorado Avalanche.

Kemper headed to the bench at the end of the second period after accumulating a save percentage of only .867. Last year, he saved .915 percent of the shots on goal in 21 games played. Alex Stalock finished off the game by blocking four shots in the third period.
Oct 4 - 11:35 PM

Darcy Kuemper could receive some additional playing time this campaign.

Coach Bruce Boudreau likes to start his top goaltender about 55 times, so Kuemper could get more appearances than the 21 matches he saw last season. "It'll be good for everyone," Kuemper said. "It'll give him fresher legs and allow him to be more rested and allow me to be in more of a rhythm. There's nothing tougher than sitting on the bench for a month and then going in there and playing a game. It's hard to feel good that way."
