Leafs castoff Stalock shuts out former club

Minnesota Wild netminder Alex Stalock hit rock bottom in 2016 when he was buried in the AHL by the Toronto Maple Leafs after being acquired from the San Jose Sharks for goaltender James Reimer.

On Thursday, Stalock proved that revenge is a dish best served on ice, as the 30-year-old veteran backup shut out his former club, blanking the Leafs 2-0 with a 23-save performance.

With Devin Dubnyk out for the next few weeks with a lower-body injury, Stalock should get ample opportunity to prove his haters wrong.

Stalock improves to 5-3-1 on the season with the victory.
