Alex Stalock will compete for Minnesota's backup job going into the 2017-18 season.
"We don't want to give anybody anything," coach Bruce Boudreau said. "We want them to come in and compete. Niklas Svedberg is going to come in and if he plays great and Stalock doesn't play well, then there could be a switch. Right now, unless Chuck makes a trade, one of those two looks like the best candidates for the job." Stalock played well for the Iowa Wild of the AHL last season and he looked solid in two NHL appearances as well. Jul 28 - 8:02 PM

The Minnesota Wild have recalled Alex Stalock from Iowa of the American Hockey League.

Stalock will serve as the third goaltender in Minnesota. He has started two NHL games this season, allowing just three goals on 54 shots.
Apr 15 - 1:21 PM

Alex Stalock has been returned to Iowa of the AHL.

He could be Minnesota's backup goalie in the playoffs if Darcy Kuemper struggles in his start this week. Stalock posted a 1-1-0 record with a 1.51 GAA and a .944 save percentage in a couple of NHL outings last week.
Apr 3 - 2:58 PM

Alex Stalock put forth a valiant effort during Saturday's 3-0 loss to the Predators.

He stopped 33 of 35 shots, including all six asked of him while on the penalty kill. The loss drops his record to 1-1 with three goals against in two games since returning to the NHL.
Apr 1 - 4:57 PM

Alex Stalock will be in net against the Predators on Saturday.

Stalock stopped 18 of 19 shots against Ottawa on Thursday during his first NHL game of the season. He owns a 25-19-7 record with a .911 save percentage and a 2.35 GAA for his career.
Apr 1 - 1:40 PM

Alex Stalock stopped 18 of 19 shots in a 5-1 win over the Ottawa Senators on Thursday.

In a surprising move, the Wild turned to Alex Stalock over both Devan Dubnyk and Darcy Kuemper for tonight's game. It marked the first NHL win for Stalock since January 12, 2016. He is a St. Paul, Minnesota native so it must have been nice to get his first Wild win in front of his friends and family.
Mar 30 - 10:53 PM

Alex Stalock will start Thursday against Ottawa.

A message is being sent here to Wild netminders Devan Dubnyk and Darcy Kuemper, as they have both struggled this month. Stalock has 20 wins along with a .924 save percentage and a 2.31 GAA in 45 appearances with the Iowa Wild of the AHL this season.
Mar 29 - 6:08 PM

Alex Stalock has been summoned from the minors and apparently he will face the Senators on Thursday.

He has played well at the AHL level and is getting a shot with the Wild because the team is 30th overall in save percentage for the month of March. It is hoped that the move will give Devan Dubnyk some rest and practice time to get back into a groove.
Mar 29 - 4:19 PM

Alex Stalock has signed a two-year contract with the Minnesota Wild.

Stalock will earn $650,000 on a one-way deal in 2017-18. However, his contract becomes two ways in 2018-19, meaning that he can earn $650,000 at the NHL level or $300,000 in the minors. He's been playing in the AHL this season, but with Darcy Kuemper set to become a UFA this summer, Stalock could slot in as the Wild's backup next season. This also gives the Wild a goalie to expose to the expansion draft as Devan Dubnyk will obviously be protected.
Feb 2 - 4:22 PM

Look for the Wild to sign Alex Stalock to a contract extension in the coming weeks.

This would have little to do with Stalock and whart he brings to the Wild. It has more to do with protecting Devan Dubnyk from the expansion draft. Every team in the NHL must expose one goalie in the draft and that goalie can't be a free agent. The only Wild goalie under contract is Dubnyk and Minnesota certainly doesn't want to let him go to the Vegas Golden Knights for nothing. So either Stalock, who is currently playing in the AHL or Darcy Kuemper will be signed to an extended deal shortly.

Alex Stalock cleared waivers Tuesday and he has been sent down to the minors.

He appeared in five AHL games with San Jose and Toronto last season, while posting a 2.94 GAA and an .884 save percentage in 13 outings with the Sharks.

Alex Stalock will play between the pipes in Monday's exhibition contest versus Buffalo.

Stalock signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Wild over the summer. As long as everyone stays healthy, he's projected to start the 2016-17 campaign in the AHL.
Mon, Sep 26, 2016 11:13:00 AM

The Minnesota Wild have inked Alex Stalock to a one-year and two-way deal worth $650K.

Stalock will earn $300K while with the AHL. The 28-year-old backup netminder played three seasons for the University of Minnesota-Duluth, where he saw great success. However he's coming off a 2015-16 season where he posted a 3-5-2 with an .882 save percentage and a 2.94 GAA in 13 games with San Jose, and never suited up for Toronto after being dealt eastward. It appears that Stalock is in line to assume backup duties behind Devan Dubnyk as Darcy Kuemper remains unsigned as an RFA.
Fri, Jul 1, 2016 03:16:00 PM

Alex Stalock cleared waivers and was reassigned to AHL Toronto on Monday ahead of the trade deadline.

The 28-year-old is 3-5-2 with an .882 save percentage and a 2.94 GAA in 13 games this season with the Sharks. He'll be a UFA at the end of the season, so considering the Leafs' desire to see what they have on farm this move isn't surprising.
Mon, Feb 29, 2016 12:39:00 PM

The Toronto Maple Leafs waived Alex Stalock on Sunday.

Well, that's certainly an interesting turn of events. This could be more of a circumstantial maneuver for Toronto, however, as Garret Sparks is up with the big club along with Jonathan Bernier. GM Lou Lamoriello has noted that he wants to see how his younger netminders have progressed, so this is likely temporary. For now, if Stalock clears waivers, the $950K of the 28-year-old goalie's cap comes off the books.
