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

Niittymaki has not played in a game yet this season.
Jan 20, 2012, 11:03 AM EST
He’s got a little-used Antero Niittymaki up for sale.

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.

If you’re not geeked up about Selanne’s return to Winnipeg, you have no soul. That and more on the Morning Skate.

Movember is made for awesome facial hair and leave it up to Jaromir Jagr to to show everyone how to do it right.

With the Sharks off to a 1-2-0 start, it looks like Antti Niemi is coming back at the right time.
Oct 8, 2011, 2:53 AM EST
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.
Sep 22, 2011, 7:35 PM EST
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.
Sep 22, 2011, 1:06 PM EST
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.
Sep 15, 2011, 7:58 PM EST
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?
Apr 24, 2011, 10:46 PM EST
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.
Apr 24, 2011, 1:47 AM EST
Jonathan Quick made a Kings’ franchise playoff record 51 saves to help the Kings overcome a 30-shot difference and beat the Sharks 3-1. Read all about the stark contrast between his game and Antti Niemi’s debacle in this post.

The Blackhawks won their fifth home game in a row by beating the Sharks 6-3 thanks to their marquee players including Patrick Sharp, who assisted on four goals in the second period.
Sharks-Capitals injury updates: Alex Semin, Antero Niittymaki to dress tonight; Mike Green’s status is unclear
Feb 8, 2011, 4:42 PM EST
Good news for the Sharks and Capitals: Antero Niittymaki and Alexander Semin are expected to dress for their respective teams tonight. Mike Green’s status is unclear, however.
Nov 24, 2010, 5:50 PM EST
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.

The “voter turnout” wasn’t outstanding for the first save of the week poll, but San Jose Sharks goalie Antero Niittymaki won convincingly enough. Check out the results and video by clicking on “read more.”

To celebrate the best moments of each week, we’ll put up a poll to see which goal/save/whatever was the most amazing of a given seven days. We might not always have one per day and sometimes there will be more than seven to choose from, but all you need to do is vote for your…

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.
Oct 24, 2010, 8:45 PM EST
If there wasn’t justification for a goalie controversy in the San Jose Sharks net, it’s difficult to argue against that reality after tonight’s disastrous start against the Calgary Flames. The Sharks pulled Antti Niemi before the first period ended today after the struggling Finnish netminder allowed three goals on only five shots, surrendering goals to…
