Antti Niemi, our 69th ranked goalie, is best suited to be a depth backup. We project he will end up with the Columbus Blue Jackets because they could use a player of this quality to play goalie. The Blue Jackets currently have only 2 healthy goalies, and 1 is rated better than Niemi: (Elvis Merzlikins).
The Blue Jackets currently have no goalies under contract beyond the 2023 season, so Niemi could see a potential long term contract with the team.
