According to Mike Chambers on Twitter, Darcy Kuemper will man the crease as the Boston Bruins are visiting Colorado. Adjust your lineups accordingly.
Check back shortly for the fantasy impact.
Darcy Kuemper was the victorious goalie as the Avalanche dealt the visiting Montreal Canadiens a 3-2 OT loss on Saturday.
Kuemper saved 28 of the 30 shots he saw and one of the goals against came on the power play. He's looked better as of late and is sporting a very solid 19-5-0-1 record with a 2.63 GAA and .913 save percentage. He should be able to see some extra rest with Pavel Francouz back on the scene and playing well.
Darcy Kuemper played very well, backstopping Colorado to a 4-1 road win over the hosting L.A. Kings on Thursday. He saved 40 of the 41 shots he faced.
Kuemper had seen 31 shots through two frames and saw the only goal scored on him in the first. He was sharp on the puck and rebound control was noticeably better. Perhaps he was motivated by his back up Pavel Francouz throwing down a shutout the night before. If Kuemper keeps playing like this the Avalanche will be in excellent shape. Through 27 starts he is now 18-5-0-1 with a 2.65 GAA and .912 save percentage.
Darcy Kuemper will be between the pipes for Colorado as they make their way through California and take on the L.A. Kings tonight after picking up a win in Anaheim yesterday.
Kuemper seems to have no problems after he was greased by Minnesota Wild forward Jordan Greenway on Jan 17. Pavel Francouz held down the fort in his absence and don't be surprised to see Kuemper's workload slightly decrease based on how Francouz has performed.
Darcy Kuemper was removed from Monday's game after receiving contact in the crease by Jordan Greenway. He stopped 12 of 13 shots through 29:26 TOI.
We don't have an idea to the extent of the damage but it was completely unnecessary that Greenway hit him. Pavel Francouz will mind the net for the Avalanche until Kuemper is able to return.
