Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: Loaned to Charlotte
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinkaid was loaned to AHL Charlotte on Saturday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Kinkaid remains a part of the Canadiens' organization but will play for AHL Charlotte on a lease-type of agreement. In 13 minor league games this year, the veteran owns a 3-7-3 record to go along with a 3.44 GAA and .876 save percentage.

Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: Clears waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinkaid cleared waivers and was assigned to AHL Laval, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Kinkaid practiced with the Rocket for the first time Wednesday morning, but Charlie Lindgren was in goal Wednesday night when Laval beat Cleveland, 3-2. Kinkaid was 1-1-3 with a 4.24 GAA and .875 save percentage while with Montreal. Clearly, he was not performing at a level the Canadiens needed from a backup goalie.

Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: Subject to waivers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Canadiens waived Kinkaid on Monday.

Kinkaid has struggled brutally in the blue paint this year, recording an .875 save percentage and 4.24 GAA en route to a 1-1-3 record. This follows the putrid 2018-19 season where he posted .891 and 3.36 marks, respectively, over 41 games with the Devils. The 30-year-old netminder carries a $1.75 million AAV contract that expires at the end of the season. If Kinkaid clears waivers, he'll land in AHL Laval. Cayden Primeau and Charlie Lindgren are currently toiling with Laval and are candidates to be Carey Price's backup unless the team explores outside options.

Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: Struggles continue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinkaid made 25 saves in a 4-3 overtime loss to Philadelphia on Saturday.

Kinkaid can't catch a break, but his play hasn't been strong, either. Bottom line is clear -- the Habs are struggling no matter who's in net, but Kinkaid is no Carey Price. We just can't recommend him right now.

Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: Gets starting nod Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinkaid will protect the home net in Saturday's matchup against the Flyers, Eric Engels of reports.

Kinkaid gets the call on the first half of back-to-back contests, as Carey Price will likely take on the Bruins on Sunday. The 30-year-old has struggled immensely this season, posting an .877 save percentage and 4.30 GAA over five appearances. Kinkaid is a high-risk fantasy play no matter who the opponent is, but it helps that Philly is tied for 23rd with 2.46 goals per road contest.

Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: Performs poorly in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinkaid allowed three goals on 12 shots in almost 39 minutes of relief during an 8-1 loss to the Bruins on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old didn't receive a lot of work in his nearly two periods of playing time, but the Bruins still did a number on him, beating him for three goals. While that resulted in a poor save percentage, this was the first time this season where Kinkaid didn't yield at least four goals. He is 1-1-2 with an .877 save percentage and 4.29 GAA in five appearances this season.

Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: Allows four goals again
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinkaid made 39 saves in a 4-3 overtime loss to New Jersey on Saturday.

He was solid, but his mates allowed a late goal to tie the game. Kinkaid hadn't played since a start back on Oct. 31, and he's allowed at least four goals in every game he's played. That makes him largely unusable in any fantasy format.

Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: Facing off against former team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinkaid will defend the home net against the Devils on Saturday, Jean-Francois Chaumont of Le Journal de Montreal reports.

Kinkaid played 151 games for the Devils before signing with the Canadiens in July, and this will be the first time he takes on his former club. The 30-year-old netminder has allowed at least four goals in all three starts this year, so the Habs hope a revenge narrative can shift the tides. It also helps that the Devils rank 28th last in the league with 1.50 goals per road contest.

Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: Not assured to start Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Canadiens head coach Claude Julien has not yet decided if Kinkaid will start the second game of a back-to-back set Saturday against the Devils, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Julien typically uses both goalies during back-to-back situations, and Carey Price started Friday against Washington. The coach is considering using Price on Saturday despite it being an opportunity for Kinkaid to face the team for which he played the last six seasons. Julien said he's considering several factors, including Price's workload Friday (27 shots in a 5-2 win) as well as New Jersey's familiarity with Kinkaid's perceived weaknesses.

Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: Collects overtime win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinkaid allowed four goals on 35 shots in Thursday's 5-4 overtime win over the Golden Knights.

Kinkaid allowed a pair of goals in the third period, but the offense bailed him out with three unanswered tallies. This was the 30-year-old's first win of the year in three tries, but he's allowed 13 goals in those appearances. Given Kinkaid's struggles, expect Carey Price to continue receiving a vast majority of the starts in goal.

Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: Gets nod Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinkaid will tend the road goal for Thursday's matchup against the Golden Knights, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Kinkaid will be going for his first win of the 2019-20 campaign, as he currently sits at 0-1-1 along with a 4.54 GAA and .875 save percentage. The 30-year-old will likely have to earn his first victory, as he faces a Vegas offense that ranks second in the league in shots per game (35.3). This will be the New York native's third start in 12 contests, hardly providing volume to warrant serious season-long fantasy consideration.

Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: Still winless in 2019-20
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinkaid allowed four goals on 33 shots in a 4-3 loss to Minnesota on Sunday.

Kinkaid remains winless through his first two starts of 2019-20, and he probably deserved a better fate Sunday. The Canadiens were playing the second game of a back-to-back, following their win in St. Louis on Saturday, and appeared to be the better team after a sluggish first period, but the Zach Parise's third-period marker gave the hosts a 4-3 lead, and that was that. While it came in a loss, Kinkaid did make a highlight-reel save on Jason Zucker in the second period. The Habs' netminder is 0-1-1 in two appearances this season but has played far better than his record suggests.

Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: Expected to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinkaid is expected to start Sunday against the Wild, Stu Cowan of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Head coach Claude Julien said he would use both goalies in this weekend's back-to-back set and had Carey Price in net Saturday against the Blues. As such, expect Kinkaid between the pipes Sunday against the Wild, who are 1-6 with a minus-15 goal differential.

Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: Gives up five in first start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinkaid allowed five goals on 39 shots in a 5-4 overtime loss to Buffalo on Wednesday.

The 30-year-old was making his first start of the year after signing with Montreal in the offseason. He had spent his entire six-year career with New Jersey but struggled in 2018-19 with career worsts in GAA (3.36) and save percentage (.891). He doesn't figure to see a ton of playing time behind No. 1 goalie Carey Price.

Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: WIll make debut Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinkaid will start Wednesday against the Sabres, Pat Hickey of the Montreal Gazette reports.

Kinkaid will be making his Montreal regular-season debut after signing as a free agent during the offseason. The Habs are facing their first back-to-back Wednesday and Thursday, which typically means the backup will get one of the games. In this case, Carey Price is being held out in order to start Thursday's home opener against the Red Wings.

Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: Holds up against barrage
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinkaid stopped 46 of 49 shots in Wednesday's 3-0 loss to the Maple Leafs.

Kinkaid withstood an onslaught but received little offensive support. While Carey Price's bruised hand injury has been deemed minor, Kinkaid authored a performance indicating he is capable of filling in for the starter, if necessary.

Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: Taking on Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinkaid will start between the pipes in Wednesday's preseason matchup with the Maple Leafs, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

Kinkaid was perfect in his Canadiens debut Saturday against the Senators, turning aside all 27 shots he faced. The 30-year-old American should get 18-20 starts as Carey Price's backup in 2019-20.

Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: Shuts out Senators
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinkaid stopped all 27 shots faced in Saturday's 4-0 preseason blanking of Ottawa.

Kinkaid, who is penciled as Carey Price's backup, made his first appearance of the preseason and first in an NHL game of any kind since February. He made a couple of big first-period saves and then handled the minimal chances Ottawa threw at him over the final two periods.

September 21, 2019 03:44 PM
Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: Making Canadiens debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinkaid will start between the pipes in Saturday's exhibition match against the Senators.

Kinkaid wasn't great last season, compiling a 15-18-6 record while posting a sub-par 3.36 GAA and .891 save percentage in 41 appearances with the Devils. The 30-year-old American should fare better in limited action as Carey Price's backup in 2019-20.

Canadiens' Keith Kinkaid: Bound to Montreal
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kinkaid signed a one-year, one-way, $1.75 million contract with the Canadiens on Monday.

The Devils flipped Kinkaid to Columbus at the 2019 deadline, only for the Blue Jackets to play out the final 31 games without deploying him at the top level. He's shown flashes of brilliance as a career backup goaltender, but fantasy owners can't be too encouraged by his career 2.90 GAA and .906 save percentage over 151 career contests. We view Kinkaid as a mere insurance option behind all-world backstop Carey Price
