    The list of goalies they’ve gone through is less-than inspiring.

    Being the third goalie is like being the third wheel: Awkward.

    Even he doesn’t have nice things to say about himself. That and more in the Morning Skate.

    With the Sharks off to a 1-2-0 start, it looks like Antti Niemi is coming back at the right time.

    Thomas Greiss

    Good thing the Sharks brought Thomas Greiss back as an insurance policy. With Antero Niittymaki out and Antti Niemi unable to return for opening night, Greiss will be the man between the pipes for opening night.

    Antero Niittymaki

    Antero Niittymaki is going to miss the next 12 weeks of play. Now is the time for Thomas Greiss to get serious as both Niittymaki and Antti Niemi may not be ready for the season opener.

  12. Antti Niemi’s status for Sharks’ season opener is unclear

    Sep 22, 2011, 1:06 PM EST

    Antti Niemi; Alex Burrows

    The Sharks aren’t worried about Antti Niemi’s health from a big picture standpoint, but the Finnish netminder could miss the team’s regular season opener on Oct. 8.

  13. The Sharks already have an injury report?

    Sep 15, 2011, 7:58 PM EST

    San Jose Sharks v Anaheim Ducks

    The Sharks released injury updates on Martin Havlat, Antti Niemi, and Antero Niittymaki today. Can someone please tell them that the season hasn’t started yet?

    Even though San Jose’s Antti Niemi is having a less-than-stellar playoffs, he’s getting the call once again to start Game 6 against Los Angeles.

    Antti Niemi gets the nod against the Blackhawks tonight. Say, you don’t think Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane might know a few tricks do you?

    If you’ve not been paying attention at all, Rick Nash of the Columbus Blue Jackets is a pretty good player. I know you might forget about him because he plays in Columbus but even if you haven’t read about him here on this site, you’re about to see some more of him in action. In…

    Seen Stamkos? We have, and it came when he was being stoned on a breakaway by Sharks goalie Antero Niittymaki. Steven Stamkos wasn’t shutout all night as he had a goal and an assist in a losing effort in the 5-2 Sharks victory over the Lightning.

    OK, the game was long over and there were more important saves tonight (Henrik Lundqvist made some pivotal stops to keep the New York Rangers ahead of the New Jersey Devils). But sometimes you just have to award style instead substance. This is one of those times: Antero Niittymaki made an impressive splitting save on…

    The spotlight might be on San Jose’s meltdown, but credit should go to Miikka Kiprusoff and Rene Bourque of the Flames for winning this one 4-0. More on that game after the jump.
