Sharks Goalies Update

Antero Niittymaki had surgery in Los Angeles and is expected to miss 12 weeks. Antti Niemi was labeled as being "on schedule" by the Sharks head coach. Thomas Greiss is expected to get most of the preseason action so he's acclimated to NHL play by the time the regular season begins.


GP Advice: It's 99% clear now that the Sharks' tandem heading into the regular season is Niemi and Greiss. Since Niemi is prone to having slow starts, I think Greiss makes a pretty intriguing fantasy goalie, but I'd only take him as your third or fourth goalie. A solid strategy would be to pick him up for a few months and then replace him with another potential sleeper.
