Top Kaapo Kahkonen News

  • Devils' Kaapo Kahkonen: Backing up Thursday

    Kahkonen (lower body) will serve as the back up for Thursday's road game versus Toronto, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Jake Allen is expected to get the start with Kahkonen serving as the back up following a one-game absence. Kahkonen's gone 1-3-0 while posting a 2.93 GAA and a .918 save percentage through five appearances since being acquired by the Devils from the Sharks at the trade deadline.

  • Devils' Kaapo Kahkonen: Dealing with lower-body injury

    Kahkonen (lower body) "isn't doing great" after leaving Sunday's game against Nashville, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Kahkonen left after facing just five shots Sunday and the early reports don't sound particularly positive. He'll likely undergo additional testing before the team has a clearer update ahead of Tuesday's matchup with Toronto.

  • Devils' Kaapo Kahkonen: Exits Sunday's contest

    Kahkonen (undisclosed) left Sunday's game against Nashville in the first period, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Kahkonen stopped four of five shots before leaving the ice with a trainer. The 27-year-old was replaced by Jake Allen. An update on Kahkonen should be available before Tuesday's tilt with Toronto.

  • Devils' Kaapo Kahkonen: Starting Sunday

    Kahkonen will protect the home net Sunday against Nashville, per Bill Spaulding of MSG Networks.

    Kahkonen has a 1-3-0 record with a 2.75 GAA and a .923 save percentage in four starts with New Jersey since being acquired from the Sharks on March 8. He will get the second half of New Jersey's back-to-back after Jake Allen played in Saturday's 4-3 win over Ottawa. Nashville ranks 12th in the league this campaign with 3.22 goals per contest.

  • Devils' Kaapo Kahkonen: Busy in loss to Blueshirts

    Kahkonen turned aside 37 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Rangers.

    The Devils erased an early 2-0 deficit with a three-goal second period, but Kahkonen couldn't hold on to the lead against a 15-shot New York barrage in the final frame. The 27-year-old netminder is 1-3-0 in four starts since getting traded to New Jersey, but that record is largely due to a lack of goal support -- he's given up only nine goals on 117 shots (.923 save percentage) with the Devils.

  • Devils' Kaapo Kahkonen: Set to face Rangers

    Kahkonen is expected to start on the road against the Rangers on Wednesday, according to Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.

    Kahkonen earned a 36-save shutout against the Islanders in his last start March 24. He has a 7-22-3 record, 3.69 GAA and .897 save percentage across 34 appearances between San Jose and New Jersey this season. The Rangers, who have won 10 of their last 13 games, figure to be a challenging adversary for Kahkonen.

  • Devils' Kaapo Kahkonen: Earns win over Isles

    Kahkonen earned a shutout in Sunday's 4-0 victory against the Islanders, stopping all 36 shots faced.

    It was Kahkonen's first win in three games for the Devils after joining the club at the trade deadline. Even with the strong performance, the 27-year-old Finn will likely remain in the backup role behind fellow trade acquisition Jake Allen. As such, Kahkonen won't offer much fantasy value moving forward.

  • Devils' Kaapo Kahkonen: Starting on Long Island

    Kahkonen will guard the road net Sunday against the Islanders, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Kahkonen will make his first start since March 16 as he tries to snap an 11-game losing streak dating back to his time with San Jose. The 27-year-old netminder is 6-20-3 this season with an .895 save percentage and 3.82 GAA. Kahkonen will face an Islanders team that's coming off a 6-3 win over Winnipeg on Saturday.

  • Devils' Kaapo Kahkonen: Dark cloak of losing continues

    Kahkonen allowed three goals on 15 shots in the first period before being pulled in Saturday's 4-1 loss to Arizona.

    He was replaced by Nico Daws, who stopped all 16 shots he faced. Kahkonen lost his 11th straight game, dating back to a Jan. 22 win for the Sharks against Kings. He has dropped 20 of his past 21 decisions. There is no reason to think Kahkonen is an option for your fantasy net.

  • Devils' Kaapo Kahkonen: Set to start Saturday

    Kahkonen is expected to start on the road against Arizona on Saturday, per Devils play-by-play announcer Bill Spaulding.

    Kahkonen stopped 23 of 25 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Rangers in his Devils debut on Monday after being acquired from San Jose on March 8. He has a 6-21-3 record, 3.76 GAA and .895 save percentage in 32 appearances in 2023-24. The Coyotes, who are tied for 22nd offensively with 2.91 goals per game, should be a favorable matchup for Kahkonen.

  • Devils' Kaapo Kahkonen: Falls in Devils debut

    Kahkonen allowed two goals on 25 shots in Monday's 3-1 loss to the Rangers.

    Kahkonen was solid in his first start with New Jersey, allowing just a pair of second-period goals, though the Devils failed to provide much support offensively, sticking the 27-year-old netminder with the loss. Kahkonen struggled behind a porous Sharks defense for much of the year, going 6-20-3 with an .895 save percentage and 3.82 GAA in San Jose. While he should have more opportunities for wins in New Jersey, Kahkonen will likely split goaltending duties with Jake Allen (not injury related) and Nico Daws down the stretch.

  • Devils' Kaapo Kahkonen: Starting against Rangers

    Kahkonen will guard the road goal Monday versus the Rangers, according to Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.

    Kahkonen will make his Devils debut after being acquired from San Jose on Friday. In 31 appearances this season, he has posted a 6-20-3 record with a 3.82 GAA and an .895 save percentage. The Rangers are tied for ninth in the league with 3.32 goals per contest this campaign.

  • Devils' Kaapo Kahkonen: Practicing with New Jersey

    Kahkonen (not injury related) practiced with the Devils on Sunday, Amanda Stein of the team's official site reports.

    Kahkonen didn't arrive from San Jose in time to back up Nico Daws on Saturday, but he appears ready to go ahead of the Devils' next game Monday versus the Rangers. Kahkonen went 6-20-3 with an .895 save percentage and 3.82 GAA with the Sharks this season. He figures to split goaltending duties with Daws and Jake Allen in New Jersey.

  • Devils' Kaapo Kahkonen: Not playing Saturday

    Kahkonen (not injured related) won't be in the lineup Saturday versus Carolina, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

    The Devils hoped that Kahkonen would make it from San Jose to New Jersey in time to suit up as the backup goaltender Saturday, but that won't happen. Kahkonen was dealt to New Jersey in exchange for Vitek Vanecek on Friday. Nico Dawes is expected to start for the Devils versus Carolina on Saturday, with Akira Schmid as the backup.

  • Devils' Kaapo Kahkonen: Acquired by Devils

    Kahkonen was brought in by New Jersey from San Jose in exchange for Vitek Vanecek (lower body) and a seventh-round pick Friday, Jeff Marek of Sportsnet reports.

    Kahkonen could be in line to split the goaltending duties with fellow deadline acquisition Jake Allen for New Jersey. It's been a rough season for the 27-year-old Kahkonen, as he has been limited to just six wins in 31 games while sporting a 3.82 GAA and an .895 save percentage behind an awful Sharks squad. Perhaps with a stronger supporting cast Kahkoenen will be able to secure some wins down the stretch before potentially hitting free agency this offseason.

  • Sharks' Kaapo Kahkonen: Crumbles late in overtime loss

    Kahkonen surrendered seven goals on 40 shots in Tuesday's 7-6 overtime loss to the Stars.

    Kahkonen had a three-goal lead to protect after Mikael Granlund scored in the third period. That lead evaporated when the Stars got three goals in a span of 2:44 in the third period, and Roope Hintz's game-winning tally completed the Sharks' collapse in overtime. Kahkonen is 0-7-2 with 38 goals allowed over his last nine appearances. He's now at 6-20-3 with a 3.81 GAA and an .895 save percentage through 31 games. The Sharks host the Islanders on Thursday.

  • Sharks' Kaapo Kahkonen: Tending twine Tuesday

    Kahkonen will patrol the home crease Tuesday against Dallas, according to Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News.

    Kahkonen has gone 0-7-1 over his past eight outings, surrendering 31 goals on 275 shots during that span. In 30 appearances this season, he has posted a 6-20-2 record with a 3.70 GAA and an .897 save percentage. The Stars sit fifth in the league this campaign with 3.52 goals per contest.

  • Sharks' Kaapo Kahkonen: Stops 28 in loss

    Kahkonen stopped 28 of 32 Wild shots during Sunday's 4-3 loss.

    Kahkonen almost grabbed a win against his former team, but a pair of late goals turned the tide against the Sharks. It has been a tough run for the 27-year-old netminder. He's 0-7-1 in his last eight games, and Sunday's .875 save percentage is the best mark he's had over the three most recent contests. San Jose's defense isn't helping a whole lot, but the distinction isn't important for fantasy managers.

  • Sharks' Kaapo Kahkonen: Starting Sunday

    Kahkonen will get the road start in Minnesota on Sunday, Max Miller of The Hockey News reports.

    Kahkonen will get the second half of San Jose's back-to-back after Magnus Chrona plays in Dallas on Saturday. Kahkonen is 6-19-2 with a 3.68 GAA and an .898 save percentage across 29 appearances this season for a struggling San Jose team. Minnesota has recorded 30.2 shots per game, which ranks 20th in the NHL this campaign.

  • Sharks' Kaapo Kahkonen: Loses to Ducks

    Kahkonen stopped 24 of 29 shots in Thursday's 6-4 loss to the Ducks. The sixth goal was an empty-netter.

    Kahkonen is 0-6-1 over his last seven outings, including regulation losses in all five of his games in February. The 27-year-old gave up all five goals over the first two periods Thursday, and the Sharks couldn't muster a comeback in the third. Kahkonen is down to 6-19-2 with a 3.68 GAA and an .898 save percentage over 29 outings. The Sharks have a road back-to-back on tap this weekend, with games Saturday in Dallas and Sunday in Minnesota. Kahkonen and Magnus Chrona are expected to split those games with Mackenzie Blackwood (undisclosed) on injured reserve for the next week at a minimum.
