Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Darcy Kuemper
Darcy Kuemper was born on May 5, 1990, in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. A product of the Red Deer Rebels of the Western Hockey League, he was selected in the sixth round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft by the Minnesota Wild.

In 2010-11, as a member of the Rebels, Kuemper was named the WHL's top goaltender with 45 wins, a stellar 1.86 goals against average and an impressive .933 save percentage.

Kuemper's first professional campaign (2011-12) was split between the Houston Aeros of the American Hockey League and the Ontario Reign of the East Coast League. As a member of the Reign, Kuemper posted seven wins and only one loss, while posting a solid 1.74 goals against average.

During the lockout shortened 2012-13 season, Kuemper would accomplish a rare feat. He would take the net in three different leagues. He would once again be between the pipes in the AHL and ECHL, but would also get his first taste of NHL action. He would appear in six games for the Wild, recording an impressive 2.08 goals against average.

Kuemper would appear in 21 games for the Wild during the 2015-16 season, recording six wins and match his career-best goals-against-average of 2.43.

On July 1, 2017, Kuemper's time in Minnesota would come to an end. He signed as an unrestricted free agent with the Los Angeles Kings.
