NHL Note - Minnesota Wild Kuemper, Darcy

Oct 16, 2017 - 7:01 AM G Darcy Kuemper made 23 saves as the Kings defeated the New York Islanders 3-2 on Sunday. Kuemper won his debut in a Kings uniform after being signed as an unrestricted free agent in the offseason. Jake Muzzin added the other Los Angeles goal.

Kuemper was pleased with his work between the pipes, noting that the system his new team employs is not much different than that of his former employer, the Minnesota Wild.

"It was nice to get the win," Kuemper said. "It felt like I hadn't played in a while just because of our schedule and it's been awhile since the preseason, so some things I could sharpen up.

"I felt pretty comfortable from the start. I've been working on good habits in practice. If you stick to the basics of your game, it makes things a little bit easier and makes you feel a little more comfortable in there."
