Alex Stalock (knee) is on the ice with his teammates for practice on Wednesday.
Troy Grosenick, who was called up during Stalock's absence, wasn't present so he may have been sent back to the minors. If that's the case then Stalock may be back in the lineup for Wednesday's game versus Calgary. Stay tuned. Nov 26 - 1:40 PM

Alex Stalock (minor knee surgery) is skating on his own.

Stalock had the surgery on November 13 and while there is still no timetable for his return, it's a good sign that he is skating. The heir apparent in San Jose has a 2-2-1 record with a 2.38 GAA and a .925 save percentage.

Alex Stalock underwent minor knee surgery on Thursday.

He was placed on injured reserve on Wednesday. Coach Todd McLellan said Stalock's injury wasn't the direct result of Dallas forward Antoine Roussel running him over last Saturday. "Everybody plays with bumps and bruises and he aggravated an injury and it got to the point where he couldn't go, and needed to have some work done. So that's occurred, that's happened," McLellan explained. There's no timetable in place for his return yet.

Updating an earlier item, Alex Stalock has a lower-body injury.

He will return to California to get the ailment looked at by a doctor. The Sharks moved him to injured reserve on Wednesday. Consider him day-to-day for now.

Alex Stalock has been placed on injured reserve by San Jose.

He owns a 2-2-1 record to go with a .925 save percentage and a 2.38 goals-against average this season. It's unclear what is ailing the Sharks goaltender, but we'll keep you posted when we learn more.

Alex Stalock blocked 37 of 40 shots in the Sharks’ 5-3 win over the Stars on Saturday night.

Stalock gave up all three goals to Tyler Seguin, twice in the first and once in the second period. Antti Niemi has been decent this year, but Stalock is a solid option should he struggle or get injured. Stalock has a 2.38 goals-against average and .925 save percentage this season. Expect Niemi to be back in net Sunday at the Blackhawks.
Nov 9 - 12:21 AM

With the San Jose Sharks beginning a back-to-back set, Alex Stalock gets a start against the Dallas Stars.

The Sharks turn around and play the Chicago Blackhawks on Sunday, so odds are high that Antti Niemi gets that start. Stalock has lost three games in a row after starting the season with a shutout. This is his first oppotunity since losing to Buffalo on Oct. 25.
Nov 8 - 2:10 PM

San Jose Sharks goalie Alex Stalock didn't improve his odds of winning the top netminding spot as his team dropped a 2-1 loss to the lowly Buffalo Sabres on Saturday.

Stalock only faced 15 shots, yet he allowed two goals. His save percentage is still strong (.924) so far, yet he's 1-2-1 and is far from stealing the job from Antti Niemi at this point. Still, it's probably fair to say that the Sharks' problems go much deeper than their goaltending questions.
Oct 25 - 7:03 PM

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

Stalock has a 2.33 GAA and .933 save percentage in three games this season. He'll play against the Buffalo Sabres, which are typically a favorable team for opposing goaltenders.
Oct 24 - 5:51 PM

Alex Stalock allowed four goals on 29 shots in San Jose's 4-0 loss to the New York Rangers.

Stalock was perfect in the first period but allowed three goals in the second frame. The 27-year-old is now 1-1-1 with a 2.27 goals-against-average and a .933 save percentage. He and Antti Niemi are competing for the starting job and tonight's performance won't help Stalock's cause.
Oct 19 - 8:00 PM

Alex Stalock has passed his first two tests in San Jose's net this season, coming off a shutout in his first appearance to make 42 saves on 45 shots in the Sharks' shootout loss on Thursday night.

Stalock played well enough to earn the win, but the Sharks could not seem to topple the much improved Islanders. Unfortunately, Stalock is not in complete control of his fantasy worth, as Antti Niemi will still collect starts until the Sharks decide Stalock is the new heir, which could take a while. After four games, its two great starts for Stalock, while Niemi has one good and one bad start.

Alex Stalock will get the nod for the Sharks on Thursday against the New York Islanders.

He made 30 stops in a 3-0 win over Winnipeg in his last outing. Adjust your lineup accordingly.
Oct 16 - 11:58 AM

The San Jose Sharks were outplayed by the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday despite winning by a 3-0 score.

Alex Stalock slammed the door on the Jets stopping all 30 shots as the Sharks became the first NHL team to open the season with back-to-back shutouts by two different goaltenders. "People who didn’t see game, they’re going to say, ‘Boy the Sharks are off to a pretty good start.’ But that was not a well-played game on our behalf by any means," coach Todd McLellan said. "I thought we played a good 26-27 minutes, then after that we weren’t close to being the better team."
Oct 12 - 9:39 AM

Alex Stalock earned his second career shutout, as he and the Sharks blanked the Jets on Saturday night 3-0.

He made 30 saves in the win. Stalock is a good enough backup to put the heat on Antti Niemi for the starting job. Of course, Niemi also recorded a shutout in his first game of the season, so that won’t happen anytime soon. The 27-year-old Stalock had a 1.87 goals-against average and .932 save percentage last season.
Oct 12 - 1:55 AM

It looks like Alex Stalock will, indeed, play for the San Jose Sharks against the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday.

Not a bad opportunity for the Sharks' backup to prove that he's actually going to make this a 1A/1B situation instead. For all the excitement Stalock's .932 save percentage generated in 2013-14, he did so in only 24 games and has just 27 games of regular season NHL experience to his name despite being 27, so there's plenty to prove.
