Stalock has shown that he can deliver the results the Lightning would look for from a backup goaltender, with a history of playing around 20 games a season and putting up respectable numbers.
His performance as Chicago’s top net-minder this past season did come as a surprise after he only played one game over the previous two seasons recovering from an injury that ended his 2020 season, and myocarditis after a bout with COVID.
Before those series of setbacks, Stalock was with the Minnesota Wild having one of the best seasons of his career. Now fully returned to health, he looks to have found his previous form as he outperformed expectations on a bad team.
Should the Lightning sign him, he feels like a safe bet.
