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

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
