07:05 AM ET 02.18 | On Tuesday, Minnesota made a move to help calm its crease chaos. The Wild tore up goalie John Curry's two-way American Hockey League contract with Iowa and signed the former Breck School product to a two-way NHL contract. He was officially placed on waivers Monday in order to be reassigned back to Iowa, but by signing Curry, the Wild now has a call-up option beyond rookie Johan Gustafsson. Because of the Wild's chaotic goalie situation this season caused by health problems for Josh Harding and Niklas Backstrom, Gustafsson, who's in his first year as a North American pro, has been on the Wild's active roster six separate occasions and has backed up nine games. He has yet to make his NHL debut. "To have Gus just up here backing up, it's just not right for his development," [said Chuck Fletcher].

As long as Mike Yeo is there, the franchise remains frozen.
