Wild send Kuemper on AHL conditioning assignment

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Wild have assigned goalie Darcy Kuemper to their AHL affiliate for a conditioning assignment.

The move was made Monday. Kuemper can stay with the Iowa Wild up to two weeks.

Kuemper's last start came on Jan. 6, his second straight game allowing four goals. He missed the next two weeks because of a lower-body injury, an absence during which the Wild acquired goalie Devan Dubnyk in a trade with the Arizona Coyotes. Kuemper relieved Dubnyk last week in the Wild's final game before the All-Star break.

Kuemper is 13-12-2 with a 2.62 goals against average this season in 29 games.

The Wild have reconvened from the All-Star break in Edmonton, where they play the Oilers on Tuesday to start a three-game road trip through western Canada.
