Kuemper is expected to start Monday in Calgary.
Kuemper stopped all 22 shots that he faced in the Coyotes shutout win over the Maple Leafs on Saturday. Kuemper and the Coyotes have had Toronto’s number this season and it led to Kuemper’s third win in his last four games—stopping 116 of the 124 shots (.936 SV%) that he has faced in that stretch. Tonight he faces a Flames team that is dangerous offensively but come in as losers of five of their last seven.
The Coyotes assigned Christian Dvorak to Tucson (AHL) for a conditioning stint.
Dvorak has been sidelined by a lower-body issue since training camp but has been skating with the Coyotes recently and a conditioning stint with Tucson is the next step to get him up to game speed. Dvorak will likely play a few AHL games before returning to Arizona where he will make his season debut. With Nick Schmaltz out and Alex Galchenyuk primarily playing the wing, Dvorak could step right into the No.2 centre role between Galchenyuk and Clayton Keller.
