Darcy Kuemper allowed just a single goal on 35 shots in Minnesota's 3-1 win over the Dallas Stars.
Kuemper kept the Stars off the board in the first two periods, but he was finally beaten by Cody Eakin early in the third frame.

Kuemper allowed the first two goals of the game, but the Wild were able to battle back before the end of regulation. He has a 6-3-3 record with a 3.22 goals-against-average and a .904 save percentage. Kuemper doesn't have any fantasy value.
Feb 8 - 11:52 PM

Darcy Kuemper will start Wednesday's game against Chicago.

He tied a career-high with 41 saves in a 5-2 win over Edmonton on Jan. 31 during his last outing. Devan Dubnyk made 38 stops in a 4-2 victory versus Winnipeg on Tuesday, so he will get some rest. Kuemper has a 6-3-2 record this season with a 3.16 GAA and a .907 save percentage.

Darcy Kuemper faced 43 shots and blocked all but two as the Wild beat the Oilers 5-2 Tuesday night.

In his 11th game of the season, Kuemper now has a record of 6-3-2. With a save percentage of .954 Tuesday, he has topped the .900 mark in more than half his starts, which makes him a hidden gem for fantasy owners each time he gets the call.

Darcy Kuemper will be in the crease for the Wild Tuesday against Edmonton.

Minnesota will give Devan Dubnyk some rest after he participated in the All-Star weekend. He will probably start Wednesday's game versus Calgary. Kuemper has a 5-3-2 record this year with a 3.28 goals-against average and a .901 save percentage this campaign.
Jan 31 - 2:28 PM

Darcy Kuemper allowed three goals on 31 shots in a 4-2 loss to Nashville on Sunday.

Kuemper falls to 5-3-2 this season with a 3.28 goals against average and .901 save percentage. The 26-year-old will continue to see limited action with a healthy and terrific Devan Dubnyk manning the cage in Minnesota.
Jan 22 - 11:53 PM

Confirming an earlier note, Darcy Kuemper will indeed face the Predators on Sunday.

Going into Sunday's contest Kuemper sports a 5-2-2 record with a poor 3.30 GAA and .901 save percentage.
Jan 22 - 6:24 PM

Darcy Kuemper will likely get the start Sunday against the Predators.

Devan Dubnyk played Saturday in a 5-3 win over Anaheim and a Kuemper start would prevent him from playing three times in four nights. Going into Sunday's contest Kuemper sports a 5-2-2 record with a poor 3.30 GAA and .901 SP. We might pass on putting him into the lineup against a strong Predators' squad.
Jan 22 - 12:48 PM

Jan 14 - 12:55 PM

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.

Jan 7 - 7:24 PM

Darcy Kuemper will face the Kings on Saturday.

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 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.
