Darcy Kuemper is expected to start Saturday afternoon against the Sharks.

At first blush this looks a bit surprising as one would have thought starter Devan Dubnyk would return to the Minnesota goal after his night off Thursday. However, Kuemper was sharp against the Kings Thursday shutting them out on 32 shots and has a tremendous record against California teams. Since December 5th, Kuemper is 5-1-2 with a 1.20 goals against average, a .950 save percentage and two shutouts. We get it now.

Darcy Kuemper (concussion) skated Thursday morning.

"Now it's just a matter of him getting the workload and getting back," coach Mike Yeo said. "Busy stretch coming up. Pretty tough on [Devan Dubnyk] what he did last weekend, pretty impressive what he did, but it's not ideal to have to throw a goalie in there four games in six nights all the time." Kuemper has sat out the last six games with a concussion.
