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.

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."

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.

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.

Alex Stalock could get the start in goal on Saturday.

Stalock was the first goalie off the ice Friday which is usually an indication asto who is starting the next game. Antti Niemi had a shutout in the opener but look for the Sharks to split the net this season, more often than not. Stalock was outstanding last season with a 1.87 GAA and a .932 save percentage.

Alex Stalock is likely to set a career high in games played this season.

Coach Todd MacLellan wants Stalock to play more than he did in his rookie season with the expectation that he will take over the starting job next year as Antti Niemi heads into the last year of his contract. Do not be surprised if Stalock plays 35-40 games this season, which makes taking a San Jose goalie early in a pool, hard.
Oct 4 - 9:58 AM

Alex Stalock stopped 23 of 24 shots sent his way, beating Arizona on Friday night.

Stalock is entering his second season and he's expected to challenge incumbant Antti Niemi for the starter's job. Things is, he's already 27-year-old, Niemi had already won the Cup with Chicago in 2010 and left for San Jose by that age. Because he's on the Sharks, Stalock is certainly worth your fantasy attention. But temper your expectations until proven otherwise as he only has 30 career games of experience including playoffs.

Alex Stalock stopped 15 of 18 shots in Tuesday's 4-2 split squad loss to the Canucks.

Stalock is part of one of the more interesting goalie battles this season as it is unclear if the team fully trusts Antti Niemi after the postseason meltdown. With Niemi an UFA at the end of this season you have to think the Sharks will want to get a long look at 27 year-old Stalock and decide if he could be the starter. He wasn't particularly sharp in this outing but is a smart handcuff either way if you are drafting Niemi this season.

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.
Aug 23 - 12:05 PM

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.
Jun 17 - 4:31 PM

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.
Jun 5 - 3:52 PM

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.
