    Sharks Sign Antero Nittymaki, Malhotra Gone

    The Sharks have turned to Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Antero Niittymaki as their replacement for Evgeni Nabokov.

    On the first day of the NHL's annual free agent frenzy, Niittymaki, 30, signed a two-year deal that will pay him a reported $2 million each season, or about $3 million less than Nabokov earned last season.

    Sharks general manager Doug Wilson has said he wanted to create a goaltending tandem with a veteran sharing responsibilities with Thomas Greiss or Alex Stalock.

    Niittymaki posted a 21-18-5 record with the Lightning last season with a .909 save percentage and 2.87 goals-against average. Before that, he played in parts of five seasons with the Philadelphia Flyers.

    In other free agent news, center Manny Malhotra won't be a Shark next season after signing a three-year, $7.5 million contract with the Vancouver Canucks.
    I guess Doug Wilson is going with a tandem on purpose...I hope it works out!
