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.

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.

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.

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.

The Toronto Maple Leafs acquired Alex Stalock, Ben Smith and conditional fourth-round pick in 2018 from San Jose in exchange for James Reimer and Jeremy Morin.

The Leafs ship Reimer's expiring contract and get a pick in return. The trade makes a ton of sense for San Jose, as they've been looking to upgrade their backup goaltender for quite some time. Stalock will get his share of starts down the stretch for Toronto, but just like in San Jose, don't expect him to be very good.

The San Jose Sharks could be in the market for a netminder after another poor performance from Alex Stalock Thursday.

Stalock is 3-5-2 this season with a 2.94 GAA and a .884 save percentage. Many poolies thought that Stalock would win the number one job over Martin Jones but that has not been the case. Stalock is in jeopardy of losing the backup role as the Sharks could look to upgrade at the trade deadline. It should be an interesting two-plus weeks.

Alex Stalock just wasn't good enough during Thursday's 6-5 shootout loss to Calgary.

After the Sharks entered the second period down 4-1, they'd go on to pick up four straight goals of their own. Unfortunately Kris Russell and the Flames had other ideas, as they withstood San Jose's onslaught to victory. Stalock made only 17 of 22 saves, including five of seven on special teams and one too few in the shootout. His record now stands at 3-5-2 on the season.

It looks like Alex Stalock will be the Sharks' starter on Thursday.

That's based on the fact that he was the first goaltender off the ice following the team's practice. He has a 2.76 GAA and .894 save percentage in 12 contests in 2015-16.

Alex Stalock made 14 saves in regulation and overtime in a 4-3 shootout loss to the Ottawa Senators.

The Sharks outshot the Senators by a 35-17 margin. Stalock was beaten for an even strength goal, a power-play goal and a shorthanded marker in the contest before he allowed one shootout tally to take the loss. The backup netminder has a 3-5-1 record with an .894 save percentage and a 2.76 GAA.

Alex Stalock will be between the pipes for San Jose against Ottawa on Monday night.

Martin Jones has won his last four appearances and will get the night off. Meanwhile, Stalock posted his third victory of the season last Tuesday versus Winnipeg.

Alex Stalock stopped 21 of 22 shots in Tuesday's 4-1 win over the Winnipeg Jets.

Blake Wheeler appeared to tie the game at two when Stalock misplayed a puck, but the goal was waved off because the officials thought he tripped Stalock. The Sharks scored on the ensuing power play to stretch their lead to 3-1. Stalock has a 3-5-0 record with a 2.76 goals-against-average and a .898 save percentage.

Alex Stalock will face Winnipeg on Tuesday night.

It's been a miserable season for Stalock, who is 2-5-0 with a .898 save percentage and a 2.98 GAA. Simply put, you may wish to find a more favorable matchup.
