Niemi Says Yes To The Sharks: Now Official

Do you know the way to San Jose? Apparently, former Blackhawks goalie Antti Niemi does. And, if he doesn't, someone better tell him.


The 27-year-old Niemi, who manned the net for the 2009-2010 Stanley Cup champions, will reportedly be wearing teal this season as, according to a league source, he's agreed to a one-year, $2 million deal with the Sharks. (Source.) The Blackhawks will visit San Jose to face the Sharks for the first time on Wednesday, Nov. 24.


UPDATE: The signing is now official, per the Chicago Tribune's Chris Kuc.
