Worcester, (Northland's NewsCenter) --- Former UMD Bulldog goaltender Alex Stalock is done for this season and will require surgery to repair a sliced nerve above his left knee.
The Worcester Telegram is reporting that Stalock suffered the injury in the third period of Friday night's game against the Manchester Monarchs, when Monarchs forward Dwight King inadvertently stepped on his leg.
The injury came just three days after Stalock had made his NHL debut and earned his first win with the San Jose Sharks, coming on in relief of Antti Niemi.
Stalock said he anticipates being ready to play next season. He has earned 58 wins during his time in the AHL with Worcester.
Stalock is UMD's all-time leader in saves percentage and goals against average, and led the Bulldogs to a WCHA Final Five tournament title and NCAA tournament appearance in 2009.
