Kuemper will be the starting goalie for Tuesday night's matchup in Vancouver, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports.

It's a bit surprising to see Kuemper get the start over Devan Dubnyk, considering the Wild are coming off of a two-day break, but the team must feel comfortable enough with the matchup to warrant giving its normal starter a rest Tuesday. Said matchup is juicy -- Vancouver ranks next to last in the league with 2.14 goals per game.
