  • Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Inks one-year deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/22/18) Niemi agreed to terms on a one-year deal with Montreal on Tuesday worth $950,000.

    After a disappointing start to his 2017-18 season with Pittsburgh and Florida, Niemi finally settled in with the Canadiens, as he went 7-5-4 with a 2.46 GAA in 19 appearances. The Habs obviously liked the netminder's body of work and at a relatively discounted $950,000, he won't break the bank for a No. 2 behind Carey Price. Even if the Finn does struggle, the club still has Charlie Lindgren waiting in the wings.

    Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Wins while not at best

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/5/18) Niemi stopped 23 of 26 shots to pick up the win in Thursday's 4-3 victory over Detroit.

    This was Niemi's final start of the season and while he wasn't at his best, he's done enough with the Canadiens to warrant interest when free agency picks up in the offseason. He entered the game with a 2.46 GAA and .929 save percentage, far better numbers than we've seen from Carey Price.

    Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Tending twine Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/4/18) Niemi will be between the pipes against the Red Wings on Thursday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Thursday's contest could be the last start for Niemi in what has been a disastrous season. The netminder -- who started the year with Pittsburgh -- played in 23 games across three teams and registered a 6-9-4 record with a 3.12 GAA. His numbers with Montreal have been significantly better (.931 save percentage), compared to his stops with the Penguins (.797) and Panthers (.872). The 34-year-old will be looking for a new contract this offseason and may have done enough to secure a short-term deal from the Habs.

    Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Blanks Sabres

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/18) Niemi stopped 35 shots during Friday's 3-0 win over the Sabres.

    Niemi entered with an impressive .935 save percentage and 2.31 GAA through his previous 12 appearances, and this was another strong showing from the veteran Finn. Despite winning just six of 12 starts during that stretch, his ratios are solid, and Niemi is worth considering as a matchup-based option in most fantasy settings when given the starting nod.

    Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Ready for Sabres

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/18) As expected, Niemi is preparing to start against host Buffalo on Friday, Arpon Basu of The Athletic Montreal reports.

    Niemi has had an interesting season, to say the least. After falling out of favor in Pittsburgh and Florida, he's found comfort in Montreal based on a 5-4-4 record, 2.41 GAA and .932 save percentage through 14 starts and 16 total outings. His next opponent currently sits in the very bottom of the league standings, but the Sabres do have a budding superstar in Jack Eichel healthy -- he has 54 points in 58 contests --- so Niemi will have to stay on top of his game in this road start.
