Kuemper will start Saturday vs. the Flames.

Kuemper allowed two goals on 35 shots in the Coyotes win in St. Louis on Tuesday. Antti Raanta gave him another night off on Thursday but will turn to Kuemper on Saturday afternoon. He is 3-3-0 with a 1.86 GAA, .939 SV% and one shutout in six starts in Arizona, so don't hesitate to start him vs. a Flames team that is 22nd in goal-scoring (2.76 GF/gm).

Kuemper will start Thursday vs. the Blue Jackets.

Kuemper allowed two goals on 28 shots in the Coyotes win in Edmonton on Monday. Antti Raanta gave him the night off on Tuesday but the Coyotes will come right back to the red-hot Kuemper on Thursday. In his last eight starts, Kuemper is 7-1-0 with a 1.73 GAA, .939 SV% and one shutout. You wouldn't dare bench him in any matchup but certainly not vs. a Blue Jackets team that is averaging the second-least goals per game (2.33).

Kuemper allowed two goals on 26 shots in the Coyotes win in Buffalo on Monday. Kuemper has been victorious in five of his last six starts while posting a 1.98 GAA and .929 SV%. He has simply been one of the best goalies in the NHL since the middle of last season and is a solid option against an Avalanche team without 2/3 of their top-line. Kuemper comes in at 2-1-0 with a 1.34 GAA and .955 SV% on home-ice.

Kuemper stopped 38 of the 40 shots that he faced in the Coyotes win in Winnipeg on Tuesday.

The Coyotes have signed Darcy Kuemper to a two-year extension worth $9.0 million ($4.5M AAV).

2018-19 was Kuemper's first full season in Arizona and it went very well. Kuemper went 27-20-8 with a 2.33 GAA and .925 SV% in 55 games while filling in for an injured Antti Raanta. Entering 2019-20, Kuemper will be the Coyotes No.2 but showed he’s capable of handling the starting gig should the oft-injured Raanta miss time again. Kuemper is signed through the 2021-22 campaign.

Kuemper appears set to start Thursday despite leaving Tuesday’s game vs. the Kings after taking a stick to the eye. The playoffs is likely a motivating factor for Kuemper to be between the pipes tonight at less than 100 percent.
