Niittymaki to Sharks
The San Jose Sharks have signed goalie Antero Niittymaki to a two-year contract.

The veteran goalie was 21-18-5 last season with a .909 save percentage and 2.87 GAA with the Tampa Bay Lightning in 2009-10. Niittymaki is 83-79-28 with a 2.98 GAA and .903 save percentage in 210 career games.

The move comes on the heels of the Sharks' decision not to offer Evgeni Nabokov a new contract with the team. Nabokov won 293 regular-season games during his 10 seasons in San Jose, but shouldered much of the load for the team's postseason failures.
Quote of the Day

The fans love it, and it looked like they were having fun. It was great to see this city [Columbus]. They had been waiting a couple years for this game. They did it right.

— Lightning captain Steven Stamkos after the 2015 Honda NHL All-Star Game on Sunday
