  • Antti Niemi: Won't be re-signed by Montreal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/9/19) The Canadiens aren't interested in re-signing Niemi this offseason.

    Niemi struggled in limited action this campaign, compiling an 8-6-2 record while posting a sub-par 3.78 GAA and .887 save percentage in 17 appearances, so it's not exactly surprising to see that Montreal isn't interested in bringing him back to backup Carey Price again in 2019-20. The 35-year-old journeyman will hope to land a backup gig with a different NHL club this offseason, but if he doesn't garner any interest, he may decide to head overseas to continue his career.

    Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Rough night against former team

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/8/19) Niemi surrendered four goals on 24 shots in a 5-2 loss to the Sharks on Thursday.

    Making a rare appearance in place of the oft-used Carey Price, Niemi didn't have what it takes to stop the NHL's third-best offense. Niemi's record falls to 8-6-2 with a 3.78 GAA and an .887 save percentage. Expect Price to start Friday's contest in Anaheim.

    Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Receives starting nod Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/7/19) Niemi will start in the cage Thursday versus the Sharks in San Jose.

    Niemi last made an appearance in the crease Feb. 7 versus the Panthers, when he let in three goals on nine shots. The Canadiens remain in the thick of the playoff hunt, so his opportunities should be sparse down the stretch, but he'll get one Thursday versus a Sharks club notching 3.71 goals per game at home this season.

    Canadiens' Antti Niemi: Pulled versus Panthers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/18/19) Niemi was replaced by Carey Price after allowing three goals on nine shots in Sunday's 6-3 loss to Florida.

    Because Montreal tied the game at three in the second period, Niemi's record will not be affected by Sunday's loss and will remain at 8-5-2. On Sunday, the Finn played just 13:57 before he was replaced by Carey Price, who made 24 saves and allowed a pair of goals in the road defeat.

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/17/19) Niemi will start on the road against the Panthers on Sunday, Eric Engels of Sportsnet.ca reports.

    The 35-year-old has not seen the ice since Feb. 2, and has a 3.61 GAA and .893 save percentage this campaign. Niemi could be busy, facing a Panthers team that averages 33.3 shots per game.
