Kuemper made 17 saves in Saturday's 2-1 loss to Calgary. Kuemper hasn't picked up a win since Feb. 18 and probably won't get a shot to do so until 2016-17. Devin Dubynk will be between the pipes for whatever damage the Wild do in the postseason.
Although Devan Dubnyk will get the start in goal in Saturday's home matchup with Calgary, Kuemper is also expected to draw into the contest at some point, Michael Russo of the Star Tribune reports. Those participating in daily fantasy contests will want to avoid both Minnesota goaltenders Saturday, as the Wild will likely have Dubnyk and Kuemper split time between the pipes against the Flames in an attempt to get both netminders ready for postseason play.
Kuemper (upper body) is slated to back up Devan Dubnyk on Tuesday against the Kings, Chad Graff of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. With Kuemper -- who relayed Tuesday that his upper-body injury wasn't a concussion -- now back in action, fellow goalie Steve Michalek is headed back to the AHL.
Kuemper (upper body) won't be available for Sunday's game against the Blackhawks, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Along with injured teammates Jason Pominville and Ryan Carter, Kuemper stayed back in Minnesota while the team traveled to Chicago. The Wild continue to view Kuemper as day-to-day, but until he's cleared to play again, the team will carry Steve Michalek on the roster as the backup goalie behind Devan Dubnyk.
Kuemper is considered day-to-day with an upper-body injury, Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. It's unclear exactly how the injury came to the surface, but it puts him in danger of missing Saturday's game with the news that the team recalled Stephen Michalek. The 25-year-old remains largely off the fantasy radar in a backup role when healthy but expect an update when he's well enough to dress again.
