Matt Climie was quick to share the credit after posting a 27-save shutout on Wednesday.

The Canucks have called up Matt Climie from Chicago of the AHL to back up Corey Schneider for Sunday's game against the Senators.

With a 2.16 goals against average and a .940 save percentage, Climie has outplayed Eddie Lack with the Wolves. As Roberto Luongo is considered day-to-day, Climie's tenure in the NHL will likely be a short one.

He posted a 26-22-3 record and a .913 save percentage with the San Antonio Rampage of the AHL last season.

Matt Climie has been returned to AHL San Antonio.

Climie served as Jason LaBarbera's backup on Thursday because Ilya Bryzgalov wasn't available. Bryzgalov was expected to rejoin the Coyotes on Friday, so Climie probably knew that this would be a brief stint in the NHL.

Climie stopped 41 shots after stopping 51 in Game 6 which the Stars won 3-2 in overtime on Monday. Both wins were in Hamilton. The Stars now take on the Hershey Bears for the Calder Cup. Climie has an excellent shot at being the backup netminder in Dallas next season as the oft-injured Kari Lehtonen will be the number one goalie while Climie will battle Brent Krahn for the backup job.

Matt Climie is expected to start in Tuesday's game against Chicago.

Climie has a chance to start the 2010-11 season as the Stars' backup goaltender, so he'll be trying hard to make a good impression heading into the off-season. Climie is scheduled to be an unrestricted free agent this summer and his primary goal is to crack into the NHL. If he feels that his best shot is with the Stars, then they shouldn't have much trouble re-signing him.
Mon, Apr 5, 2010 02:35:00 PM

Matt Climie might get a chance to play in one or two of Dallas' final three games.

The Stars called him up to audition him for the number two gig on their 2010-11 squad. Kari Lehtonen will be the team's starting goaltender and Marty Turco is expected to leave in the off-season rather than serve as the Stars' backup netminder. Climie, who will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, would like to stay with the Stars, but he'll ultimately consider other opportunities as he tries to break into the NHL. Stay tuned.
