Huet Gives Up NHL Dream; Signs With Swiss Club

News: Cristobal Huet will not return to the NHL this season. He has signed a four-year deal with Laussane of the Swiss league, reports The Globe and Mail.
Analysis: He had recently indicated a desire to return to the NHL and had hoped to land a gig as a backup. But it appears the market had stalled under the threat of a labor disruption, and Cristobal Huet decided he couldn't wait. He played eight seasons in the NHL, most recently with Chicago, and leaves with a 129-90-32 record in 272 games.

Huet Considering Return To NHL

News: Cristobal Huet is looking to return to the NHL after spending the past two seasons in the Swiss League and the Canucks might have interest in him as a backup, the Vancouver Province reports.
Analysis: With Roberto Luongo likely being traded before the season, Vancouver will be in the market for a backup to Cory Schneider. Cristobal Huet is an unrestricted free agent and can sign with any team. If he doesn't find work in the NHL, Huet will likely continue to play overseas.

Blackhawks Officially Say Goodbye to Huet

News: Huet was officially loaned to Fribourg-Gotteron SA of the Swiss National League A on Monday, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Analysis: The Blackhawks are still paying his $5.625 million per season salary, but it will not count against the NHL's salary cap. Unfortunately for the team, the move is too late to hold on to some of the players from the Stanley Cup-winning team that were traded because of the salary cap conundrum.

Blackhawks Place Huet on Waivers

News: The Blackhawks placed Huet on waivers Saturday, the Chicago Sun-Times' Adam Jahns reports.
Analysis: Huet is expected to head to a team in the Swiss pro league if he clears waivers.

Chicago's Huet Won't be at Camp

News: Coach Joel Quenneville confirmed Thursday that Huet will not be at training camp, the Chicago Daily Herald reports.
Analysis: Huet is expected to be loaned to a team in the Swiss pro league, but the transaction can't become official until two weeks into training camp. Marty Turco, Corey Crawford and Hannu Toivonen are left as the Hawks' top three goalies.

Blackhawks Close to Ridding Huet's Cap Hit

News: The Blackhawks are close to a deal that would allow them to lend Huet to a Swiss team for a year, Chicago Breaking Sports reports.
Analysis: The Blackhawks would still have to pay Huet's $5.625M contract, but would be freed from the salary cap hit that currently has the team over the cap.

Niemi to start Tues. vs. Blues

News: The Chicago Tribune reports that Blackhawks G Antti Niemi will start in goal against the Blues on Tuesday night.
Analysis: Niemi has been a little up and down lately with two shutouts in his last four starts, but those were his only wins during that span. Because he's slowed down a bit and could lose starts to Cristobal Huet at any time, consider Niemi a low-end No. 2 Fantasy goalie for now. The Blackhawks TG remains a must-start option, while Huet is barely worth using in average-point leagues at this point.

Huet beaten for seven goals

News: Blackhawks G Cristobal Huet had a bumpy night during a 8-3 loss to the Blue Jackets on Thursday. Huet was locked in a 2-1 battle until Columbus scored three times during a 10-minute window in the second period. Huet was then pulled in favor of Antti Niemi late in the second period. Huet was put back in to start the third, but he allowed two more goals in the first 3:49. Huet finished with 20 saves, while Niemi stopped four of five shots.
Analysis: Huet has lost his last two starts and has allowed 14 goals in his last three appearances. He has had some ugly outings since the Olympic break and is not giving his coaches much confidence. Huet won't be totally shunned down the stretch, unless Niemi starts playing lights out. However, Huet is at best a low-end No. 2 Fantasy option since he is struggling. The Blackhawks TG has high-end Fantasy appeal.

Niemi to get call Tuesday

News: The Blackhawks' official Twitter feed reports that G Antti Niemi will start on Tuesday vs. Phoenix.
Analysis: Niemi has had some mixed results lately, but Cristobal Huet has been sick, which has limited his action. You have to think the Blackhawks are looking for one of their goalies to step up before the Stanley Cup playoffs, and maybe Niemi has the edge at the moment. Because he's not guaranteed a certain amount of starts, he can only really be considered a low-end No. 2 Fantasy goalie in deeper leagues at best. Don't use Huet in Fantasy Week 23 (March 22-28). The Blackhawks TG remains a No. 1 option.

Huet well enough to back up Saturday

News: Blackhawks G Cristobal Huet felt well enough to back up Antti Niemi in Saturday's shootout loss to the Coyotes.
Analysis: Huet missed a few days with the flu, but appears to be back in the goalie mix for the time being. He might get a couple of starts in Fantasy Week 23 (March 22-28), but the Blackhawks like to give both of their goalies looks, so you never know who is going to get the edge in number of starts. Consider Huet a low-end No. 2 option at best.

Flu still has Huet sidelined

News: Blackhawks G Cristobal Huet sat out a second straight game on Thursday against the Kings because of the flu. He is day to day.
Analysis: The flu isn't as bad as a groin or back injury for a goalie, so Huet shouldn't be out much longer. When healthy, he continues to share time in net with Antti Niemi. Huet remains more of a low-end No. 2 Fantasy goalie when healthy.

Flu sidelines Huet

News: Blackhawks G Cristobal Huet did not suit up for Wednesday's game against the Ducks because of the flu.
Analysis: Due to the split goalie situation in Chicago, Huet is a risky Fantasy play. He is a low-end No. 2 option at best, but the Blackhawks TG is an elite unit.

Huet comes down with the flu

News: The Chicago Tribune reports that Blackhawks G Cristobal Huet has the flu.
Analysis: Huet is now doubtful for Wednesday's game at Anaheim, and this illness could certainly dent a few Fantasy teams' playoff chances. However, with the split goalie situation in Chicago, Huet is always a risky play. He is a low-end No. 2 option at best, while the Blackhawks TG is an elite unit.

Huet's 31 saves not enough

News: Blackhawks G Cristobal Huet held the Flyers scoreless through two periods on Saturday but fell apart during the third, allowing three goals in the final frame as Chicago fell 3-2. Huet stopped 31 of 34 shots.
Analysis: Huet has given up 14 goals in his last five games, and is 2-2 during that stretch. He's started four of six games since the Olympic break, so he's getting more time in net than Antti Niemi. Huet is a viable No. 2 Fantasy option. The Blackhawks TG remains a must-start option.

Bad day for Huet, Niemi

News: Chicago G Cristobal Huet cruised through the first period on Sunday against the Red Wings, stopping all nine shots he faced in the opening period. Things got dicey in the second, however. Huet coughed up four goals on just eight shot attempts by the Red Wings in the second period and was removed before the period was out in favor of Antti Niemi, who wasn't much better in the second. Niemi allowed a goal of his own in the second before the nightmare was over. Chicago scored twice in the third to make it a game but lost 5-4. Huet made 13 saves and Niemi just seven.
Analysis: Huet gets saddled with the loss Sunday and his record falls to 26-13-4 on the year. He'd won his previous two starts before Sunday so there is no reason to panic just yet. Niemi remains 17-4-1 on the year. Niemi remains, at least at this time, the top goalie in Chicago, but he hasn't been getting the starts lately. Stay tuned to how this situation shakes out. Niemi is worth a look as a No. 2 option in deeper leagues. Huet shouldn't be used just yet outside of average-point leagues, while the Blackhawks TG remains a must-start option.

Blackhawks, Huet win

News: The Blackhawks led 5-1 after one period and hung on to beat the Canucks 6-3 on Friday. Chicago G Cristobal Huet made 20 saves to win his second straight start after dropping three in a row.
Analysis: Huet improved to 26-12-4 on the season. He hasn't been playing great -- allowing five goals in his last two starts -- but keeps winning, and could move past Antti Niemi for the time being. Stay tuned to how that shakes out. Niemi is worth a look as a No. 2 option in deeper leagues. Huet shouldn't be used just yet outside of average-point leagues, while the Blackhawks TG remains a must-start option.

Huet making case to be starter?

News: Chicago G Cristobal Huet didn't have to do much work on Wednesday night against the Oilers. That is because in the entire game Edmonton could muster just 14 shots on goal. Huet stopped 12 of them and the Blackhawks scored three times in the final period to win the game 5-2.
Analysis: Huet won his 25th start of the season on Wednesday and improves to 25-12-4. He snaps a four-start losing streak dating back to Jan. 30 with this win. It wasn't as if he was terribly impressive Wednesday, allowing two goals on 14 attempts, but this win could move him past Antti Niemi for the time being. Stay tuned to how that shakes out. Niemi is worth a look as a No. 2 option in deeper leagues. Huet shouldn't be used just yet outside of average-point leagues, while the Blackhawks TG remains a must-start option.

Niemi pulled for Huet Tuesday

News: Chicago G Antti Niemi allowed three goals on just 12 shots Tuesday before getting pulled in favor of Cristobal Huet against the Islanders in New York. Niemi made just nine saves in the game and Huet wasn't much better. Huet stopped nine shots as well on 11 attempts and allowed two goals to score in the 5-3 win for the Islanders.
Analysis: Niemi takes the loss for this abysmal performance. He came into the game on fire before the Olympic break as he'd won four straight. His record falls to 17-5-1 on the year. Huet remains at 24-11-4. Theses two goalies have been neck-in-neck to earn the full-time starters job in Chicago and its seems that Tuesday's game did little to separate the two. Niemi is worth a look as a No. 2 option in deeper leagues. Huet shouldn't be used just yet outside of average-point leagues, while the Blackhawks TG remains a must-start option.

Niemi to start on Tuesday

News: The Blackhawks' official Twitter feed reports that G Antti Niemi will start in goal on Tuesday at the Islanders.
Analysis: Chicago plays four times in Fantasy Week 20 (March 1-7) with no games on back-to-back days. So, conceivably, Niemi could play all four games in the scoring period, but he could also play as few as one if he struggles on Tuesday. With Cristobal Huet breathing down his neck, Niemi is clearly a little bit of a risk in the scoring period, but with the way he was playing before the break, he is certainly worth a look as a No. 2 option in deeper leagues. Huet shouldn't be used just yet outside of average-point leagues, while the Blackhawks TG remains a must-start option.

Niemi to start on Tuesday vs. Stars

News: ESPN reports that Blackhawks G Antti Niemi will start on Tuesday vs. Dallas.
Analysis: Niemi has been playing great hockey this season, but hasn't been able to unseat Cristobal Huet just yet. There is an opening there though, as Huet has been getting shelled lately while Niemi's 1.93 GAA leads the league. With Chicago's second and third game in Fantasy Week 19 (Feb. 8-14) coming on back-to-back days, there's a good chance Niemi will get at least two starts in the scoring period. Combined with his solid form, that could be enough for you to use him as a sleeper No. 2 Fantasy goalie in deeper leagues. Huet should probably be avoided this week, while the Blackhawks TG remains a must-start option.

Huet's winless streak at three

News: Blackhawks G Cristobal Huet made 21 saves through overtime, but then allowed goals to Robert Lang and Adrian Aucoin in a shootout, and Phoenix escaped with a 2-1 win on Friday. Huet held a 1-0 lead until Radim Vrbata scored a power-play goal at 16:42 of the second period. Vrbata was credited with a power-play goal with 3:17 left in the second that tied it at 1, and came moments after Jason LaBarbera stopped Chicago's Marian Hossa on a short-handed breakaway. Vrbata fired low shot from above the left circle with Petr Prucha parked in front of the crease. The puck appeared to deflect before flipping past Huet, who is winless in his last three outings.
Analysis: Huet has had to start the last two games because Antti Niemi has been under the weather. But Niemi should be ready to play on Saturday against the Blues. Huet is technically the starter in Chicago, but Niemi has been playing much more lately to keep Huet fresh. Unless Chicago makes a trade, then Huet should finish out the season as the team's No. 1 goalie. Still, he remains a No. 2 Fantasy option until he gets back on track. The Blackhawks TG is a must-start option.

Coach still has faith in Huet

News: The Chicago Daily Herald reports that Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville still has faith in his No. 1 G Cristobal Huet, despite his struggles of late. "I just think the last number of games (Carolina and St. Louis), you look at the number of shots we’ve had one way (75) and the number against us (43),” Quenneville said Thursday. "Whether they’re tipped or deflected, they’re tough saves. We’re not blaming the goaltending at all, but we know the importance of it. We know it’s a key position for us and we’re going to rely on it as we go along here."
Analysis: Huet has been outplayed by Antti Niemi lately, although Niemi's numbers have been slipping a little, too, so maybe Quenneville has a point. Huet remains a decent No. 2 goalie for now simply because he plays for one of the best teams in hockey, while the Blackhawks TG is an elite Fantasy option.

Second-period barrage dooms Huet

News: Blackhawks G Cristobal Huet made 16 saves during a 3-2 loss to the Blues on Wednesday. Huet, who was making the start for the ill Antti Niemi, faced only three shots in the first period as Chicago built a 1-0 lead. It all came crashing down the second as St. Louis scored three times on nine shots. Huet made seven saves in the third but Chicago couldn't rally.
Analysis: Huet has lost his last two starts while making only 39 saves and allowing seven goals. In fact, he has allowed three or more goals in five of his last seven outings and that has allowed Niemi to steal more starts. Unless Chicago makes a trade, then Huet should finish out the season as the team's de facto No. 1 goalie. Still, he remains a No. 2 Fantasy option until he gets back on track. The Blackhawks TG is a must-start option.

Niemi not feeling well, scratched

News: The Blackhawks' official Twitter feed reports that G Antti Niemi has been scratched from his scheduled Wednesday start because he's under the weather. Cristobal Huet will get the start instead.
Analysis: Wednesday was supposed to be Niemi's first start since Jan. 23, but now he'll have to wait a little bit longer. Hopefully he'll be feeling better later this week, as Chicago faces back-to-back games on Friday and Saturday. Continue to view Niemi as a No. 3 option in deeper leagues or as a handcuff to Huet, while the Blackhawks TG remains a must-start choice.

Niemi gets 1st start in 10 days

News: The Daily Herald reports that Blackhawks G Antti Niemi will get his first start since Jan. 23 when Chicago hosts St. Louis on Wednesday. “Antti hasn’t played in a while,” said coach Joel Quenneville. “He had a tough period at Vancouver and this is a chance for him to get back in the net.”
Analysis: As long he plays OK on Wednesday, Niemi should be line for a pair of starts in Fantasy Week 18 (Feb. 1-8), as Chicago's second two games of the scoring period come on back-to-back nights. Unfortunately, he's one of those guys who is really too risky to play in most Fantasy weeks as he's stuck behind Cristobal Huet and isn't guaranteed to get any specific amount of starts. Continue to view him as a No. 3 option in deeper leagues or as a handcuff to Huet, while the Blackhawks TG remains a must-start choice.
