Minnesota Wild agree to terms with goalie John Curry on 1-year, 2-way contract

ST. PAUL, Minn. - The Minnesota Wild have agreed to terms with goaltender John Curry on a one-year, two-way contract.

Under the deal announced Thursday, Curry will be paid his NHL salary only if he is on the NHL roster. If he is sent to the AHL, he will get a minor-league salary.

Curry was one of five goalies who played last season for the Wild. He had a 43-save win in April against St. Louis.

The 30-year-old from Shorewood, Minnesota, was 7-9-2 with a 2.62 goals-against average, a .930 save percentage and one shutout in 19 games with the AHL's Iowa Wild last season. He appeared in two NHL games with Minnesota, going 1-0-0 with a 3.00 goals-against average and a .930 save percentage.

He played in four games with the Pittsburgh Penguins from 2008-10.

Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
