According to Nick Kypreos via Twitter, Stanley Cup-winning goaltender Antti Niemi will sign with the San Jose Sharks as early as tomorrow. 


West coast source has confirmed Antti Niemi will sign with the Sharks as early as tomorrow. I hear 2M base, possibly for just the 1 year.

The goalie has been rumored to sign with either an NHL or European team for weeks, and it seems like he has finally found a home. The Sharks have gotten a pretty solid goalie and if Kypreos is right, at a pretty cheap price.
