Niemi’s Stanley Cup Story

From Terry Jones via the Edmonton Sun:

Antti Niemi now admits to getting giddy in private moments at several stages of the remarkable Stanley Cup story he has written so far.

But not now.

It’s almost all real now, he swears.

“Not so much this year, but I think, yes, last year,” he said of those private personal moments while backstopping the Chicago Blackhawks to a Stanley Cup last year.

Niemi began to stop marveling at being a guy who, not that long ago, was driving a Zamboni at the rink in his hometown of Vantaa, Finland, the moment he knew the salary-cap challenged Blackhawks were not going to be able to bring him back for an encore.
