In first Wild start, well-traveled Curry has career day

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- John Curry knew of family members and friends coming to see his first game as a member of the Minnesota Wild. He's sure there were others, but the Shorewood, Minn., native shut his phone off a couple of days before his start against the St. Louis Blues on Thursday night. Curry will likely have a lot of messages when he turns his phone back on. Playing in an...

Curry and Wild stand tall in 4-2 win over Blues

Kyle Brodziak dangles the puck around a sprawling T.J. Oshie.   I will admit, I am barely invested in tonight’s Wild game.  If I had my choice, I would take this game off.  The game that is on television right now that has my interest, isn’t even an NHL game.  The game I would rather watch is the North Dakota vs Minnesota game in the Frozen Four semi-final game.  Union...

ECHL Goalie John Curry Fined for Tossing Water on Fans Dressed as Roman Gladiators (Video)

Dressing up like a Roman gladiator is an open invitation to get doused with water. A few fans found that out the hard way recently when goaltender John Curry of the ECHL’s Orlando Solar Bears broke out the water bottle following his team’s 4-1 loss to the Gwinnett Gladiators. The fans sat next to the Orlando bench and got in some good old-fashioned heckling while watching their...

ECHL goalie sprays water on taunting fans

Orlando Solar Bears goalie John Curry was fined earlier this week for spraying water on a group of heckling fans. The thing about taunting during an ECHL game that makes it different from an NHL game is the players hear every last word. When five of the 30 fans in attendance make it their goal to harass you for 60 minutes, it takes its toll more than it would if the heckling was...
