John Curry was working out off the ice with injured defenseman Justin Falk on Thursday.

The assumption is that he's on his way back to the minors, but right now he's still listed on Minnesota's roster. The Wild brought him up after Darcy Kuemper went on injured reserve with a lower-body injury, but team acquired Devan Dubnyk on Wednesday so Curry is likely heading back down soon.

John Curry has been recalled to backup Niklas Backstrom with Darcy Kuemper out with a lower body injury.

The 30 year old career minor leaguer has been beaten for 34 goals in 14 games down on the farm in AHL Iowa this season.
Jan 8 - 7:27 PM

John Curry has been sent to the minors.

Curry had been serving as Darcy Kuemper's understudy while Niklas Backstrom battled an illness. Curry did start in one game during his stint with Minnesota, but he turned aside just 19 of 23 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to Winnipeg.

John Curry kicked away 19 of 23 shots in the Wild’s 4-3 overtime loss to Winnipeg on Saturday night.

Curry was playing in his seventh NHL game, but his first this season. He got the start with Darcy Kuemper sidelined because of an illness. Depending on how Kuemper feels, Curry could get some more time in net. He had a 2.84 goals-against average and .917 save percentage in the AHL.

John Curry made the start for the Wild on Saturday night against the Jets.

Darcy Kuemper was slated to start but he is sick. Curry sports a 2.84 goals-against average and .917 save percentage in the AHL.

There's a chance that Darcy Kuemper might be sick for the Minnesota Wild, too, so don't be surprised if John Curry gets the nod on Saturday instead.

Curry is 30, yet he doesn't have a lot of NHL experience, so this might be a nice opportunity for Winnipeg Jets players to score. Then again, he's less of a known entity, so there's a give-and-take fantasy-wise.

The Minnesota Wild recalled goalie John Curry in light of Niklas Backstrom being sent to injured reserve.

Curry is 5-6-0 with a .917 save percentage in the AHL so far in 2014-15. The 30-year-old has six games of NHL experience spread out over three seasons. The Wild don't face back-to-back games until Jan. 10-11, so it remains to be seen if Curry gets a start (assuming Backstrom's out for an extended period of time, to begin with).

John Curry has been returned to the minors.

He was called up on an emergency basis for Tuesday's game against Philadelphia because Niklas Backstrom was suffering from an illness.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
