As for the Internet report that Niittymaki had signed with a team in Russia’s Kontinental Hockey League (reports that never came with attribution or an official announcement, by the way), Niittymaki said they were wrong.
“I don’t know who put out those rumors,” he said. “I never signed. There was a lot of interest from Russian team, and that was pretty much it. I never signed anything, and I don’t know how it came out that way. My first thing was always to look for a job in the NHL.”
“He did not sign anything,” Lawton said. “That question was asked to him and every member of their legal team.”
