On September 2, 2010, Annti Niemi officially signed a 1-year, $2 million dollar contract with the San Jose Sharks. He made 30 saves in his first regular season victory with the Sharks, a 3-2 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets. After a poor start to the season, Niemi was platooned with fellow Finnish netminder Antero Niittymäki, but strong play in the month of February, which saw him go 14-2-1 with a 1.91 GAA and .924 save percentage, cemented him as the Sharks' starting goaltender. On March 1, 2011, Niemi signed a four-year contract extension with San Jose worth $15.2 million. His nickname with the San Jose Sharks is "Nemo".
In October 2012, Niemi signed a one-month contract with the Pelicans Lahti during the 2012 NHL lockout.
