Alex Stalock could be in a battle for the number one netminding job in San Jose.
The starting goalie for the most part last season was Antti Niemi but the Sharks used him in Game 6 of the opening round after benching Niemi against the Kings. Niemi has not inked a new deal and could leave the Sharks after this season as a UFA. Not that this is the only reason for Stalock having a shot as the starter as he was 12-5-2 during the regular season with a sparkling 1.87 GAA and a just as sparkling .932 save percentage. If you take Niemi in your fantasy pool, be sure and handcuff him with Stalock. Sep 14 - 9:57 AM

Alex Stalock's strong 2013-14 has him locked in as the Shark's backup for the coming season, and on track to contend for the Sharks' starting job in the future.

With the Sharks hungry for change and Antti Niemi's contract entering its final year, the Sharks will audition the 27 year-old American this season to see if he can develop into a starting goaltender. Stalock earned a spot with the big club by going 12-5-4 with a 1.87 goals against average and .932 save percentage last year in his first taste of regular NHL action.

San Jose Sharks and Alex Stalock have agreed to a two-year contract.

Stalock had a 1.87 GAA and .932 save percentage in 24 games in 2013-14. He's projected to enter next season as the backup goaltender, but it wouldn't be shocking to see him challenge Antti Niemi for the starting role if Niemi's struggles out of the gate after a rough 2014 postseason.

Alex Stalock and the San Jose Sharks have started contract talks.

Both sides would like to get something finalized before the NHL Entry Draft in later this month. In 24 games during the 2013-14 campaign, Stalock posted a 12-5-2 record with a 1.87 goals-against average and a .932 save percentage. Stalock also earned a franchise record shutout streak of 178:55 seconds in January. There's a chance that he could steal starts from Antti Niemi next campaign if both goaltenders remain with the team.

Alex Stalock, who is slated to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1st, wants to return to the Sharks.

The 26-year-old netminder likes it in San Jose and feels some loyalty to the organization that stuck by him when he had a career-threatening leg injury in 2011-12. "I really like it here. It's the only organization I've been on, and they've been great to me since day one," Stalock said, "and with everything I've been through, it's been handled great. I can only say good stuff." Look for Stalock to be back with the Sharks next season as a back up to Antti Niemi or another starting goaltender.

Alex Stalock allowed four goals on 30 shots in San Jose's 4-1 loss to Los Angeles Monday night.

It was Stalock's first career NHL playoff start and he was solid for the first two periods, but allowed three goals in the third period. It will be interesting to see whether Stalock or Antti Niemi will start in Game 7 on Wednesday night.
Apr 29 - 3:39 AM

Alex Stalock will start in Game 6 against Los Angeles on Monday night.

He was the first goaltender off the ice at San Jose's morning skate. Stalock has made two relief appearances in the series and he's stopped all 26 shots he's faced against Los Angeles. This will mark his first career NHL playoff start.
Apr 28 - 3:05 PM

Do not be surprised if Alex Stalock gets the start in Game 6 for the San Jose Sharks.

My, how things can change in only a few days. A few days ago the Sharks were up 3-0 over the Kings and Antti Niemi looked like he was going to lead the Sharks into the second round of the playoffs. But two games later, Niemi could be watching from the bench as he was pulled in both games after allowing eight goals on only 45 shots. Stalock has been perfect in stopping all 26 Kings shots in the playoffs, so coach Todd McLellan could look to Stalock in Game 6. "We've got to talk about that yet today," McLellan said Sunday. "We'll make a decision and let him know when it's time." Stay tuned.

Alex Stalock was a perfect 22-for-22 in relief of Antti Niemi in the Sharks' 3-0 Game 5 loss to the Kings on Saturday night.

Niemi gave up three goals on 19 shots, prompting a hook 22 seconds into the second period. Stalock, who also came in on relief in Game 4 (albeit for four shots), was excellent in this one and looked a lot more confident than Niemi. It wouldn't be all that surprising to see coach Todd McLellan turn to Stalock on the road for Game 6, with his team still leading the series by a game. Stalock was a great backup this season, posting a 1.87 goals-against average and .932 save percentage, so it's not like this came out of nowhere.
Apr 27 - 1:18 AM

Alex Stalock played in his first career postseason game on Thursday.

Starting goaltender Antti Niemi was yanked after allowing five goals on 26 shots. Stalock turned aside the four shots he faced in 17:46 minutes, but the Sharks still suffered a 6-3 loss to Los Angeles. Niemi will probably be back between the pipes for Game 5 on Saturday.
Apr 25 - 11:39 AM

Alex Stalock stopped 32 of 33 shots in San Jose's 5-1 win over Colorado Friday evening.

Stalock played a very solid game and improved his record to 12-5-2. He now boasts a 1.87 goals-against average and .932 save percentage. Sharks' head coach Todd McLellan hasn't announced his goaltender for Game 1 against the Kings. Antti Niemi will likely be McLellan's choice for the post-season but Stalock certainly has made a strong case for himself with his recent performances.
Apr 12 - 5:18 AM

Alex Stalock will start for the San Jose Sharks on Friday.

It's an opportunity for Antti Niemi to rest ahead of the playoffs and after a couple rough starts. Stalock has a 1.91 GAA and .929 save percentage in 23 games in 2013-14.
Apr 11 - 3:22 PM

Alex Stalock permitted three goals on 22 shots in a 3-2 loss to Colorado on Saturday afternoon.

He has provided the Sharks with quality play this season when called upon, but he wasn't at his best against the Avalanche in this one. Stalock was beaten for an even strength goal, a power-play goal and a shorthanded tally in the contest. He now owns an 11-5-2 record with a .930 save percentage and a 1.91 GAA.
Mar 29 - 6:19 PM

Alex Stalock will be in goal for Saturday's game against Colorado.

That's a 3:00 p.m. EST start, so adjust your lineup accordingly.
Mar 29 - 2:29 PM

Alex Stalock turned aside 26 of 27 shots in San Jose's 2-1 shootout loss to Calgary Monday night.

Stalock now has a 11-4-2 record with a 1.85 goals-against average and .933 save percentage. The Sharks will play again tonight in Edmonton, so Antti Niemi will likely start that contest.
