ST. PAUL — The South St. Paul boy is staying home for a while.
Alex Stalock, the Wild’s backup goaltender since spring of 2017, has agreed to terms on a three-year deal worth $2.35 million, the team announced Tuesday.
The one-way contract is worth $905,000 next season, $700,000 in 2020-21 and $750,000 in 2021-22 for an average annual value of $785,000.
Stalock, 31, is 17-16 with a 2.80 goals-against average and .907 save percentage in 62 appearances, including 48 starts, since joined the team on a two-way free-agent contract in July 2016. Playing in the second of a two-year, $1.3 million extension signed in January 2017, he’s 6-5 with a 2.92 GAA and a .894 save percentage in 14 games while backing up Devan Dubnyk. He has started 10 games this season.
A graduate of South St. Paul High School who played three seasons at Minnesota Duluth, Stalock is 41-35-11 with a 2.55 GAA, a .909 save percentage and five shutouts in 106 career NHL games (81 starts) with San Jose and Minnesota.
