Hawks to start Huet against Oilers
Niemi was pulled after the first period of Saturday's 5-1 loss in Vancouver. The Hawks were trailing 3-0 at the time.
"We let Antti play in back-to-back games based on how well he was playing," Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said Monday after practice. "Huet got a chance to play in the last game, and we look forward to him getting back in.
"We're comfortable with that."
"Of course I was a little upset [at the situation Saturday], because you don't want to get pulled," Niemi said. "You don't have your best game when you get pulled, obviously, so yeah, a little bit upset."
Dave Bolland is scheduled to join the team in Edmonton and begin practicing with them on Tuesday.
