For the second time in the past month, Antti Niemi finds himself on the waiver wire.

The Florida Panthers confirmed Monday that they have placed the 34-year old veteran goaltender on waivers.

Niemi, who the Panthers initially claimed off waivers on October 24, posted a 5.08 goals-against average and an .872 save percentage in the two games he played with Florida.

He has gone 0-4-0 with a .822 save percentage and 6.74 goals against average in five combined games this season.

Perhaps the Golden Knights can take a flyer on Niemi with all their goaltending injuries, but other than that it looks like his time in the NHL is nearing its end.
