The Hamilton Spectator - - SPORTS -

The Min­nesota Wild signed goalie Alex Stalock to a two-year, $1.3mil­lion con­tract ex­ten­sion Thurs­day. The sign­ing will en­able the Na­tional Hockey League team to pro­tect all-star goalie De­van Dub­nyk in June’s ex­pan­sion draft when Las Ve­gas forms its team. Stalock would be ex­posed in the draft. Stalock will also get a chance to be the Wild backup next sea­son as backup Darcy Kuem­per’s con­tract is ex­pir­ing. The first year of Stalock’s new deal is a one-way and the se­cond year is a two-way. Stalock, a for­mer Min­nesota Du­luth goalie, has played in 29 games and has a 2.56 goals-against av­er­age for Iowa. He played in 62 NHL games for San Jose be­fore sign­ing with the Wild last sum­mer.
