Kinkaid led the Devils to the playoffs last season, going 26-10-3 with a 2.77 GAA and .913 save percentage. Those rate stats were right in line with Kinkaid's career numbers as a backup, but he served as the starter in the second half of the season over the ineffective and occasionally injured Cory Schneider. Schneider's $6 million AAV should earn him the first look as the starter in New Jersey's crease this season, though he may not be ready on Opening Day after offseason hip surgery. Kinkaid's numbers won't blow you away, but any continued struggles from Schneider -- whether performance or injury-related -- would open the door for Kinkaid to once again take over as the No. 1 goalie for an expected playoff contender.

  2. Keith Kinkaid 2017–18 Preseason Outlook
    For better or worse, Kinkaid will find himself serving as Cory Schneider’s backup in New Jersey for two more years after signing an extension in the offseason. Even in what was Schneider’s worst full campaign ever last year, Kinkaid only saw action in 26 games, starting 23. His career 2.68 GAA and .912 save percentage are good enough to stick in the NHL, but he’s a distant No. 2 in New Jersey.
  3. Keith Kinkaid 2016–17 Preseason Outlook
    Kinkaid is locked into the backup job behind Corey Schneider, although he represents a sizeable downgrade in net anytime he’s called upon. The 27-year-old netminder has amassed an uninspiring 2.71 GAA and .909 save percentage while serving as New Jersey’s No. 2 netminder over the past two seasons; he has almost no chance of overtaking Schneider unless injury is involved.
  4. Keith Kinkaid 2015–16 Preseason Outlook
    Kinkaid didn’t see much action behind workhorse Cory Schneider last season, but when he did, he was up to the task, posting a respectable 6-5-4 record to accompany his .915 save percentage. Despite having only 20 NHL games under his belt, Kinkaid is the clear-cut backup in New Jersey, and should be perfectly serviceable so long as he's not needed for a long stretch of action in the event of a Schneider injury. Given the fact Schneider played 69 games last season and figures to rank among the league leaders in appearances again, it’s unlikely you would draft Kinkaid in 2015-16, but may represent a worthy streaming choice against some of the dregs of the league.
  5. Keith Kinkaid 2014–15 Preseason Outlook
    One of several younger netminders in New Jersey’s system, Kinkaid will battle Scott Clemmensen for the team’s backup role behind Cory Schneider. The young goalie grabbed 24 wins in the AHL last season with a 2.29 goals-against average and should see a handful of starts in the NHL should he secure the team’s No. 2 role.
  6. Keith Kinkaid 2013–14 Preseason Outlook
    Kinkaid is one of several goaltenders in the team's system who saw his potential role within the organization change when the Devils acquired Cory Schneider on Draft Day. With Schneider on board, Kinkaid and Scott Wedgewood will be vying for AHL starts and the right to be Schneider's backup in several years time. Kinkaid's numbers in the AHL could have been stronger with a .905 save percentage and a 2.72 goals-against average and will need to improve. Kinkaid saw just 26 minutes of NHL action last season in his call-up.
  7. Keith Kinkaid 2012–13 Preseason Outlook
    One of several young netminders in the Devils’ organization vying for the mantle of heir apparent to Martin Brodeur, Kinkaid posted a 17-20-3 record, including three shutouts, with AHL Albany last season. Kinkaid will likely spend 2012-13 in the AHL ... barring any injuries to the Devils’ top duo of Martin Brodeur and Johan Hedberg. He'll battle Jeff Frazee and possibly Scott Wedgewood for playing time in the minors.
  8. Keith Kinkaid 2011–12 Preseason Outlook
    After a strong career at Union College, Kinkaid inked an entry-level deal with New Jersey in April of 2011. Expect him to start the season in the minors with several netminders ahead of him on the depth chart.
