On Sharks goaltender Antero Niittymaki:

"Niittymaki, who had hip surgery in early September causing him to miss training camp and the first two and a half months this year, was asked point blank if he\'d like to play somewhere else if that\'s what gets him back in the crease.

\"I want to play. I want to play. Let\'s put it that way. I\'ve played zero games this year,\" he said.

No one from the team has approached him about the possibility of getting traded, he said.
