Antti Niemi, our 63rd ranked goalie, is best suited to be a depth backup. We project he will end up with the Detroit Red Wings because they could use a player of this quality to play goalie. The Red Wings currently have only 0 healthy goalies, and none are rated better than Niemi.
The Red Wings currently have no goalies under contract beyond the 2024 season, so Niemi could see a potential long term contract with the team.
