Sharks' Niemi to make first preseason start: report

Goalie Antti Niemi will make his first start of the preseason Friday against the Arizona Coyotes, the San Jose Mercury News reported.

Niemi, who is in competition with Alex Stalock for the Sharks' No. 1 job, has not played since losing Game 7 of the Western Conference First Round to the Los Angeles Kings, a series San Jose led 3-0.

"No matter how well you do stuff before camp, when the camp starts, there's a different mindset," Niemi told the newspaper. "There's more speed on the ice, more pucks. Everybody's going way harder, so even though you'd like [to replicate that] before the camp, that's when it really starts."

Blue Jackets' Horton 'suffering,' GM says: report

Columbus Blue Jackets forward Nathan Horton has a degenerative back condition and it is unknown when he will return to action, The Columbus Dispatch reported Thursday.

"He is suffering," general manager Jarmo Kekalainen told the newspaper.

The GM said Horton will attempt to overcome the condition without surgery.

"It's about getting stronger and managing the pain by getting stronger in the core," Kekalainen told reporter Shawn Mitchell. "Then your back gets stronger and the pain will go away. [He] is the only person that really knows where he is at and how much pain there is involved. It's impossible for anybody else to know what he is going through right now."

Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
