Antti Niemi will get the start in Saturday's game against the Vegas Golden Knights.

Believe it or not, Niemi has started two of Montreal's last three games.

Niemi has actually been quite good since joining the Habs. The veteran has a 2-6-1 record with a 3.92 goals-against-average and a .888 save percentage with Pittsburgh, Florida and Montreal this season. The Golden Knights have been incredible at home, so Niemi isn't a recommended fantasy play in any type of fantasy league.
