Wild sign Stalock, Cannone

The Minnesota Wild, parent club of the AHL’s Iowa Wild, have agreed to terms with free-agent goaltender Alex Stalock and forward Pat Cannone on one-year, two-way contracts.

Cannone, 29, had a career year in 2015-16, tallying 20 goals and 52 points in 73 games to lead the Chicago Wolves in scoring. The Wolves’ captain also played in the 2016 AHL All-Star Classic and was the MVP of the All-Star Challenge after helping the Central Division to victory.

The five-year pro from Bayport, N.Y., has tallied 80 goals and 123 assists for 203 points with a plus-54 rating in 348 career AHL games with Chicago and Binghamton.

Cannone played four seasons at Miami University (2007-11) and served as co-captain his senior season, when the RedHawks won the CCHA conference championship.

Stalock, 28, went 3-5-2 in 13 NHL games with the San Jose Sharks last season, posting a 2.94 goals-against average (GAA) and an .884 save percentage. The 6-foot, 185-pound native of St. Paul, Minn., also appeared in five American Hockey League contests with the San Jose Barracuda and the Toronto Marlies, posting a 3-2-0 record with a 2.38 GAA and a .916 save percentage.

Prior to last season, Stalock appeared in 142 games with the Worcester Sharks of the AHL over four seasons. While with Worcester, then the AHL afflilate of San Jose, Stalock was selected to the AHL All-Rookie Team and to the AHL All-Star Classic in 2009-10, when he set an AHL record for wins by a rookie (39).

Stalock starred at South Saint Paul High School and at the University of Minnesota-Duluth before turning pro.
