Head coach Mike Yeo confirmed as much on local radio station KFAN on Thursday morning, according to Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune.
The move means Devan Dubnyk's streak of 39 consecutive starts - 38 with the Wild - will come to an end. It's the longest such stretch since former San Jose Sharks goaltender Evgeni Nabokov started 43 straight games in 2007-08.
Kuemper suffered an injury in practice on Jan. 7 and has only made one appearance since, relieving Dubnyk in a shootout loss to the Detroit Red Wings on Jan. 20.
He is 36-13-4 with a GAA of 2.04 and a save percentage of .930 in 57 contests.
