  • Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Rare start ends in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/23/17) Niemi made 31 saves in Saturday's 4-1 loss to Edmonton. He allowed three goals.

    Niemi was solid Saturday, but his Hab-mates didn't do much to help. He just doesn't get enough starts behind Carey Price to make him a viable fantasy option.

    Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Starting against Oilers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/23/17) Niemi will defend the visiting net Saturday against the Oilers, Dan Robertson of TSN 690 reports.

    Niemi will make an appearance in the crease for the first time since Dec. 9 and his first start of the month. He's posted a respectable 2.65 GAA and .921 save percentage since being claimed by the Canadiens in late October. However, being stuck behind Carey Price on the depth chart will likely limit his future opportunities in net.

    Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Cleans up Saturday's mess

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/10/17) Niemi stopped 24 of 26 shots in relief of Carey Price in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Oilers.

    This was Niemi's first appearance in eight games, as Price had monopolized the starts while showing Vezina Trophy form since his return from a lower-body injury. Unfortunately for the Habs on Saturday, Price's form was more like the goalie that went 3-7-1 with a 3.77 GAA we saw earlier this season.

    Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Comes up short in first start with new team

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/23/17) Niemi gave up two goals on 33 shots in Wednesday's shootout loss to the Predators.

    Niemi was making his first start for the Canadiens, as this is already the third team he's been with this season. The veteran may be sporting an awful .845 save percentage, but he actually looked very good Wednesday and helped Montreal earn a point. Niemi has slid into the backup role with Carey Price (lower body) and Al Montoya (concussion) on the sidelines, but it's hard to be optimistic about his fantasy value given his lackluster play this season. Youngster Charlie Lindgren is emerging for the Habs and we'll need to see more consistency from Niemi before recommending him as a spot start.

    Canadiens' Antti Niemi: In net against Nashville

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/22/17) Niemi will start on the road against the Predators on Wednesday.

    Get your Predators ready. Niemi is the fourth-string goalie for the Canadiens, and Montreal is already his third team of the season. The Canadiens are on the second night of a back-to-back, and Niemi has a 6.66 GAA and a .820 save percentage this season. This one could get ugly.
