Wild sign 51-year old goaltender as backup for game against Nashville
By The Associated Press

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) ' The Minnesota Wild have signed 51-year-old recreational hockey goaltender Paul Deutsch as an emergency backup for Wednesday night's game against the Nashville Predators.

Deutsch was signed after Niklas Backstrom was declared out for personal reasons. Matt Hackett was recalled from Houston, but his flight wasn't scheduled to land in the Twin Cities until about 6:30. Minnesota-Nashville starts at 7 p.m.

Deutsch runs a screen printing and embroidery store in a St. Paul suburb and plays recreational hockey. A good friend of former assistant coach Mike Ramsey, Deutsch has been used in Wild practices in the past.
