Kuemper was traded from the Kings to the Coyotes on Wednesday in exchange for Tobias Rieder and Scott Wedgewood, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports. The netminder will also sign a two-year extension with Arizona worth $1.85 million annually.

Kuemper will serve as a nice backup piece behind Antti Raanta and could be a plan b in goal next season should the Coyotes be unable to reach an agreement with Raanta -- who is an impending free agent.
