John Curry has been called up Minnesota.

He has been summoned on an emergency basis to back up Darcy Kuemper because Niklas Backstrom won't play because he is feeling ill.
Dec 23 - 6:34 PM

John Curry has been returned to the minors.

He was brought up for Wednesday's game against Boston because Darcy Kuemper was dealing with an illness.
Dec 19 - 10:37 AM

John Curry has been recalled from the minors for Wednesday's game against the Bruins.

Curry was pulled from his AHL start for the Iowa Wild in the second period of Tuesday's game to make it to Minnesota in time for their game against Boston Wednesday night. He will most likely serve as the backup to Niklas Backstrom, but Backstrom is battling through a similar illness as Darcy Kuemper, who will not be able to dress, so Curry may find himself starting Wednesday after all.
Dec 17 - 2:16 PM

The Minnesota Wild have inked John Curry to a one-year, two-way deal.

Curry had a 2.62 GAA and .920 save percentage in 19 AHL games in 2013-14. He's an organizational depth goaltender, which the Wild clearly need given setbacks their netminders suffered in 2013-14.
Jul 17 - 4:20 PM

John Curry was the backup netminder for the Wild on Friday.

Curry was on the bench as Ilya Bryzgalov was between the pipes in a 5-2 loss to the Blackhawks. Darcy Kuemper was injured in Game 7 on Wednesday so Curry got the call to be the backup. He last played on April 10 in a 4-2 win over St. Louis.
May 3 - 8:47 AM

John Curry faced a lot of rubber, but he emerged victorious after Minnesota's 4-2 defeat of the Blues.

Curry is the fifth different netminder the Wild has started for a game this season, but he fared exceptionally well in his chance. He stopped 43 of 45 shots to earn a victory and improve his record to 1-0-0. Prior to tonight, he had not played in the NHL since 2009 so his fantasy prospects are somewhat limited.
Apr 11 - 1:23 AM

John Curry will be between the pipes for Minnesota on Thursday night.

It will mark his first appearance in goal for the Wild and he will be the fifth different Minnesota netminder to face the St. Louis Blues this season. Adjust your lineup accordingly.
Apr 10 - 12:20 PM

John Curry has been brought up by the Minnesota Wild.

Darcy Kuemper has an upper-body injury, so Curry will back up Ilya Bryzgalov.

John Curry and Steven Kampfer have been returned to the minors by Minnesota.

Curry was up with the team as insurance because Niklas Backstrom has been dealing with an abdominal issue all season. Kampfer was originally brought up as a practice replacement following the Olympic break. Both of them were healthy scratches on Wednesday.
Mar 1 - 12:22 PM

Minnesota has called up John Curry.

Josh Harding is out indefinitely and Niklas Backstrom has abdominal issues, so the Wild likely felt like they needed an insurance policy. Curry, 29, has just four games worth of NHL experience.
Feb 26 - 4:11 PM

John Curry went unclaimed on waivers.

Curry had to be placed on waivers after signing a two-way deal with Minnesota. The Wild don't plan to use him right now, but he's an insurance policy in case their goaltending injuries start to pile up.
Feb 18 - 12:43 PM

Minnesota has placed John Curry on waivers.

He signed a two-way NHL deal with the Wild to give the club some goaltending depth and an insurance policy down the stretch. Curry has appeared in 12 games with AHL Iowa this season, where he has six wins, a 1.95 goals-against average and a .939 save percentage.
Feb 17 - 12:58 PM

John Curry was re-assigned to Wilkes-Barre of the AHL on Wednesday.

His services were no longer needed as regular backup Brent Johnson has recovered from a groin muscle strain and is able to dress.

The Pittsburgh Penguins have recalled goaltender John Curry from the minors.

Curry was recalled to back up Marc-Andre Fleury as usual backup Brent Johnson suffered a groin injury on Wednesday and was forced to leave the game. Curry is 11-5 this season at Wilkes-Barre with a 2.33 GAA and a .913 save percentage. He has no fantasy value at this time.
