Sharks sign Niemi to 4-year deal @NHLdotcom

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - The San Jose Sharks have signed goaltender Antti Niemi to a $15.2 million, four-year contract extension.

The team announced the deal Tuesday.

Niemi signed a $2 million, one-year deal with the Sharks this summer, just months after knocking them out of the playoffs and helping the Chicago Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup.

After a somewhat slow start to the season, Niemi is a major reason for the Sharks' turnaround in recent weeks that has moved them to the top of the Pacific Division standings.

The 27-year-old Niemi has started the past 18 games with Antero Niittymaki injured. He is 14-2-1 with a 1.91 goals against average and .934 save percentage in that span.
