Pittsburgh Penguins



Signing
The Penguins have signed Antti Niemi to a one-year deal worth $700K.
Niemi’s numbers have been slipping for the last few years, finally resulting in an .892 SV% and a buyout in 2016-17. Niemi is a value option to serve as Matt Murray’s backup with Marc-Andre Fleury being selected by the Vegas Golden Knights. A limited role is probably best for the 33-year-old and he will be playing behind a more defensively responsible team than he was in Dallas.

Buyout
The Stars will place Antti Niemi on waivers for purposes of a buyout.
After acquiring Ben Bishop from the Kings, the Stars were going to move or buyout Niemi or Kari Lehtonen. Niemi was set to enter the final year of his contract that carried a $4.5M cap-hit, but the buyout will cost the Stars $1.5M against the cap for the next two seasons. The veteran netminder struggled a season ago, posting a 3.30 GAA and .892 SV% in 37 games.
