It will be Darcy Kuemper between the pipes Saturday night against the Predators.

Kuemper, who was sick earlier in the week and missed Tuesday's and Wednesday's games, seems to have recovered sufficiently to start against the Preds. He will be opposed by the NHL's top goalie, Pekka Rinne, so Saturday night's assignment is not an easy one.

Darcy Kuemper wasn't able to play Tuesday because he wasn't feeling well.

He was dealing with a stomach ailment, so his scheduled start went to Niklas Backstrom, who was also battling the illness during Minnesota's 5-3 loss to Chicago. It isn't clear if Kuemper will be available to dress on Wednesday night.

Minnesota goalie Darcy Kuemper made 18 saves en route to the Wild's 2-1 victory over the visiting Montreal Canadiens Wednesday night.

Kuemper stopped 10 shots over the first 40 minutes before facing his stiffest tests in the third period, when he made eight saves, some from point-blank range.

He hasn't been bad at all and if he's available in your fantasy league, and you're not happy with your goaltending, he may well be worthy of an investment.

Even after coming back to reality, Kuemper has still been a nice surprise to fantasy owners this season.
