Niemi stopped just 27 of 31 shots during Monday's overtime loss to St. Louis.

Niemi has flashed upside over the past two seasons with the Stars, but he hasn't proven to be a reliable fantasy commodity outside of being a solid source of wins. Through 61 games with Dallas, he owns an underwhelming .905 save percentage, and the 33-year-old veteran has allowed three goals or more in six of his 11 starts this year. While Niemi shouldn't be counted on outside of favorable matchups, if you're selective with his opponents, there is value in owning him.
