Description: Pittsburgh backup goalie Thomas Greiss defeated St. Louis on Saturday night.

2/8/2015 9:03:00 AM
Description: Penguins backup goalie Thomas Greiss allowed five goals on Saturday night against the Canucks.
Insight: He got the rare start, and is now 5-3-3 with a 2.81 GAA and .909 save percentage. He is not a relevant option.

Greiss stopped 31-of-35 shots.
 
1/29/2014 9:29:00 AM

Insight: He turned aside all 30 shots that came his way. Greiss has played well as a backup this season, winning seven of 11 games with a 2.00 GAA and a .935 SV%. He'll be worth adding if starter Mike Smith struggles down the stretch.
 
1/7/2014 6:07:00 PM

Insight: Mike Smith has put up a 3.73 GAA over his last three outings. The 27-year-old Greiss is 5-2-1 with a 2.12 GAA and a .930 SV% this season, both of which are career bests.

3/6/2013 7:58:00 PM
Description: The Sharks will go with backup Thomas Greiss in net Wednesday against the Flames.
Insight: Greiss has only appeared in three games this season as Antii Niemi (10-4-4, 1.83 GAA, .935 SV%) hasn't needed much rest. However, Niemi saved 36 shots in a shootout win Tuesday at Vancouver so Wednesday is a good day to get Greiss some action.
 
1/26/2013 6:58:00 PM
Description: Sharks backup goaltender Thomas Greiss picked up the first shutout of his NHL career Saturday against the Avalanche.
Insight: Greiss has played 39 games in the NHL. He doesn't get much playing time behind starter Antti Niemi, so while his effort Saturday was strong, it doesn't move the needle in fantasy leagues.
 
1/26/2013 3:34:00 PM
Description: Sharks backup goaltender Thomas Greiss will get the start Saturday against Colorado.
Insight: San Jose has been scoring at will this season to help starter Antti Niemi start out 3-0. Niemi figures to start most games so Greiss won't be a fantasy factor this season.
