"Sharks goaltender Antero Niittymaki cleared waivers Thursday morning. So for now, he continues to be a member of the Sharks organization."

"I know they've been working hard to find a place for me to play," Niittymaki said from Lake Tahoe, where he is spending the All-Star Break. "It's probably not as easy as it sounds because I've been out with the (hip) surgery and I've only played games in the minors."
