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 and Michael Keranen were scratched on Tuesday night against the Edmonton Oilers.

The backup goalie carousel continued, meaning it was Kuemper's turn to backup Devan Dubnyk. Keranen meanwhile has yet to skate for the Wild.

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.
Feb 8 - 2:21 PM

Darcy Kuemper will make his final AHL conditioning start Saturday against the Marlies.

If all goes well, Kuemper will then be activated for games next week. Kuemper played well with Minnesota's affiliate, Iowa, but he will return to a backup role behind the red hot Devan Dubnyk when he rejoins the Wild.
Feb 7 - 1:02 PM

Darcy Kuemper is expected to rejoin Minnesota in the next few days.

He has played in three games for Iowa during his conditioning stint and he posted a 28-save shutout against Adirondack on Wednesday. Coach Mike Yeo hasn't decided how he will handle three goaltenders on the roster yet.
Feb 5 - 7:01 PM

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

Kuemper is actually on a conditioning assignment with Minnesota's farm team in Iowa. After a great start to the season, Kuemper has fallen apart. Erik Haula and Christian Folin are also healthy scratches.

Jan 29 - 9:06 PM

Darcy Kuemper has been sent to AHL Iowa on a conditioning assignment.

He can be there for up to two weeks. That leaves Devan Dubnyk as Minnesota's likely starter and Niklas Backstrom as the backup. Kuemper made his return to the lineup last Tuesday in a relief appearance against Detroit and he stopped all 14 shots he faced. He missed six games with a lower-body injury before that.
Jan 26 - 4:53 PM

Darcy Kuemper (lower body) has been taken off of the injured reserve list.

That leaves Minnesota with three healthy goaltenders. Kuemper will serve as a scratch on Monday, but he might play in Tuesday's contest.
