Avalanche's Darcy Kuemper: Surrenders three goals in win
Kuemper gave up three goals on 29 shots in Wednesday's 7-3 win over the Rangers.
Kuemper also briefly left the game in the third period due to an equipment issue. The 31-year-old missed the last five games with an upper-body injury but didn't appear any worse for wear. Kuemper improved to 10-5-0 with a 2.86 GAA and a .902 save percentage in 16 games this season. He'll likely be back in net for Friday's home game versus the Red Wings.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Darcy Kuemper: Gets starting nod against Rangers
Kuemper (upper body) will be between the pipes on the road versus the Rangers on Wednesday.
Kuemper will be making his first appearance in the crease since suffering his upper-body injury against Dallas on Nov. 26. Prior to getting hurt, the 31-year-old backstop had appeared in 15 of the Avs' first 17 outings and figures to resume a heavy workload now that he is back in action.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Darcy Kuemper: Still out against Flyers
Kuemper (upper body) won't be available versus Philadelphia on Monday, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.

Kuemper (upper body) won't be in the lineup for Saturday's game versus Ottawa, but he could return Monday against Philadelphia or Wednesday versus the Rangers, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.

Avalanche's Darcy Kuemper: Will be monitored
Colorado head coach Jared Bednar said Kuemper (upper body) will be monitored "over the next couple of days," Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey Now reports.
Speaking with reporters following Wednesday's 8-3 loss to the Maple Leafs, Bednar implied Kuemper will not be available to go Thursday in Montreal. If that is the case, and Bednar wants to avoid using Jonas Johansson on the second night of a back-to-back set, Justus Annunen would likely get the call. He was brought up from AHL Colorado on Wednesday and was recently named the AHL Goaltender of the Month for November.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Darcy Kuemper: Scratched from start
Kuemper (upper body) has been scratched from his scheduled start Wednesday versus the Maple Leafs, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.
Jonas Johansson will instead make the start Wednesday. Justus Annunen was called up from AHL Colorado and is expected to join the Avalanche, although it's unclear if he'll be available to back up Johansson during the game. Considering Kuemper won't dress for Wednesday's game, he's likely doubtful for Thursday versus the Canadiens.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Darcy Kuemper: Gets starting nod Wednesday
Kuemper will be between the pipes against Toronto on the road Wednesday, Mark Masters of TSN.ca reports.
Kuemper will be making his 16th start of the season as he goes for win No. 10. In those prior 15 appearances, the netminder is sporting a 2.84 GAA and .903 save percentage while still searching for his first shutout of the year. A clash with the star-studded Leafs won't improve Kuemper's chances.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Darcy Kuemper: Falls behind early in loss
Kuemper allowed three goals on 22 shots in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Stars.
Kuemper was down 2-0 after just 1:31 as Joe Pavelski buried a pair of goals. Denis Gurianov struck on the power play in the second period, and the Avalanche couldn't pull off a comeback. The 31-year-old Kuemper has been a bit unsteady lately with nine goals allowed on his last 48 shots faced. He dropped to 9-5-0 with a 2.84 GAA and a .903 save percentage in 15 appearances. He'll likely get to watch from the bench Saturday against the Predators, as Jonas Johansson will probably handle the second half of a back-to-back set.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Darcy Kuemper: First off Friday
Kuemper was the first goalie off the ice at Friday's morning skate, suggesting that he'll start in the evening against Dallas, Conor McGahey of Altitude Sports Radio Denver reports.
Kuemper's last start was cut short due to an equipment malfunction with his skate blade, but he had been rolling previously, with wins in each of his last five decisions and seven of eight. He'll look to build on that success -- and avoid any further equipment issues -- against a Stars team that will likely offer a stiff test, having won four of its last five games coming into this one....

Avalanche's Darcy Kuemper: Night ends early due to skate issue
Kuemper stopped five of six shots before being replaced by Jonas Johansson due to an equipment malfunction in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Ducks.

Avalanche's Darcy Kuemper: Starting against Anaheim
Kuemper will patrol the crease during Wednesday's home game versus the Ducks, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.
Kuemper has been on a roll recently, picking up five straight wins despite posting a mediocre .903 save percentage over that span. The 31-year-old netminder will try to pick up his 10th victory of the year in a home matchup with an Anaheim team that's averaging 3.50 goals per game on the road this year, first in the NHL....

Avalanche's Darcy Kuemper: Wins ugly Monday
Kuemper surrendered five goals on 20 shots in Monday's 7-5 win over the Senators.
While Kuemper collected his fifth straight win, it was far from a pretty effort. It was just the second time he's allowed five goals in a game this season. The 31-year-old improved to 9-4-0 on the year while his GAA rose to 2.79 and his save percentage slipped to .906 in 13 games.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Darcy Kuemper: Guarding cage Monday
Kuemper will get the starting nod for Monday's home game against the Senators, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.
Kuemper will make his sixth straight start Monday, and he'll be looking for a fifth consecutive win. During his winning streak, he's allowed just eight goals on 114 shots. The 31-year-old has registered a solid 2.59 GAA and .915 save percentage through 12 appearances this season.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Darcy Kuemper: Starting in Seattle
Kuemper will be between the pipes Friday in Seattle, Mike Chambers of The Denver Post reports.
Colorado has outscored opponents 20-5 over a three-game winning streak, with Kuemper in the crease for the duration. The team has managed to do that without superstar Nathan MacKinnon (lower body), as well, so this still looks like a fantastic matchup against a subpar Seattle team that's lost five straight games and seven of its last eight....

Avalanche's Darcy Kuemper: Fades late in win
Kuemper allowed three goals on 28 shots in Friday's 7-3 win over the Kraken.
Two of the three goals he allowed came on Kraken power plays, and he didn't give up anything until the Avalanche had a 7-0 lead. Kuemper has won four straight starts and allowed just eight goals in that span, providing excellent goaltending for an Avalanche team weathering some significant injuries to forwards. The 31-year-old improved to 8-4-0 with a 2.59 GAA and a .915 save percentage in 12 contests. It's unclear at this time if head coach Jared Bednar will go with Kuemper or backup Jonas Johansson for Monday's game against the Senators, who will be coming back from a sizable COVID-19 outbreak that postponed three games this week....

Avalanche's Darcy Kuemper: Takes down Canucks
Kuemper allowed two goals on 34 shots in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Canucks.
Kuemper faced a decent workload in the contest, but the Avalanche's excellent power play covered the two goals he allowed. This was the 31-year-old's fifth win in his last six starts, as he's settled in nicely after a slow start to the season. He improved to 7-4-0 with a 2.56 GAA and a .916 save percentage in 11 appearances. He'll likely get a chance to face the Kraken on Friday as the Avalanche wrap up a two-game road trip....

Kuemper will defend the blue paint during Wednesday's road game versus the Canucks.
Kuemper was sharp in his last start Saturday against the Sharks, turning aside 28 of 30 shots en route to an easy 6-2 victory. The 31-year-old netminder will attempt to secure a third straight win in a road matchup with a slumping Vancouver team that's lost three straight games.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Darcy Kuemper: Well-supported in win
Kuemper allowed two goals on 30 shots in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Sharks.
It was a fairly standard performance for Kuemper, but the Avalanche's offense stepped up to lead the way. The 31-year-old goalie has settled in with his new team, winning four of his last five games to improve to 6-4-0 on the year. He has a 2.61 GAA and a .914 save percentage in 10 appearances. Kuemper will be a bit of gamble in weekly formats next week, as the Avalanche only play twice -- Wednesday versus the Canucks and Friday against the Kraken.... See More ... See Less
Avalanche's Darcy Kuemper: Starting against San Jose
Kuemper will guard the home goal during Saturday's matchup with the Sharks, Peter Baugh of The Athletic reports.
Kuemper was sharp in his last start Thursday against the Canucks, turning aside 21 of 22 shots en route to an easy 7-1 victory.

Avalanche's Darcy Kuemper: Cruises to win
Kuemper stopped 21 of 22 shots in Thursday's 7-1 win over the Canucks.
Kuemper was hardly tested by the Canucks, and the Avalanche provided plenty of goal support. The 31-year-old improved to 5-4-0 with a 2.68 GAA and a .911 save percentage in nine contests. Kuemper will likely start again Saturday against a Sharks team expected to be bolstered by players returning from the NHL's COVID-19 protocols.... See More ... See Less
