Coyotes' Kuemper could miss significant time with injury

·1 min read

GLENDALE, Ariz. — The Arizona Coyotes could be without top goalie Darcy Kuemper for a significant amount of time due to a lower-body injury.

Kuemper was injured in Monday's game against Colorado. The team said Wednesday he is listed as week to week.

Kuemper, who missed three games earlier this season with a lower-body injury, went down to a knee in the third period against the Avalanche. He asked the officials to stop the game and skated off to the locker room.

Kuemper shined as Arizona's No. 1 goalie in 2018-19 before injuries limited him to 55 games. He was named an All-Star last season, but couldn't play in the game due to another injury that caused him to miss 28 games. He returned to play nine games in the post-season bubble.

Kuemper is 7-7-2 with a 2.41 goals-against average, .914 save percentage and one shutout in 18 games this season.
