Stars Buy Out Antti Niemi's Contract

Jun 28, 2017 1:42 AM

The Dallas Stars have announced their buy out of the final year of goalie Antti Niemi's contract, a plan that will spread the $3 million payment over two seasons for an annual salary cap hit of $1.5 million.

Niemi was due to make $4.5 million coming off a disappointing season in which he was 12-12-4 with a 3.3 goals-against average in 37 games. The ninth-year player became expendable after Ben Bishop was acquired in a trade that will likely make him the starter, with Kari Lehtonen as the backup.
