Niemi was claimed on Tuesday, a day after being waived by the Penguins. He allowed 16 goals in losing three games for the Penguins. Niemi is now on his third team in four months and fourth since winning the 2010 Stanley Cup with Chicago.

Goaltender Malcolm Subban was claimed off waivers by the Golden Knights, Bruins general manager Don Sweeney said Tuesday.

The Bruins waited until Monday to waive the 23-year-old, with most teams already set in goal, hoping to sneak him to their Providence affiliate, but the former first-round pick was claimed by Golden Knights general manager George McPhee.

"I had my fingers crossed that it wasn't gonna happen," Sweeney said, according to the Boston Herald.
