The Montreal Canadiens are bringing back Antti Niemi after a successful tenure with the club.

The team has signed the veteran netminder to a one-year, $950,000 contract to back-up Carey Price next season.

The 34-year old, who was claimed off waivers after being released by the Panthers in November 2017, posted a combined 7-5-4 record, 2.46 goals-against average and .929 save percentage in 19 games in 2017/18.
