News: Lowe signed with the Sharks on Wednesday as a backup goaltender behind Antti Niemi, Kevin Kurz of CSN Bay Area reports.
Impact: Lowe last played professionally in Australia, and played in an AHL game in 2007-2008. He will serve as a temporary backup behind Antti Niemi with both Alex Stalock and Troy Grosenick sidelined with injuries.
News: Grosenick is dealing with an undisclosed injury and isn't expected to be available for Wednesday's game against the Flames, Brodie Brazil of CSNBayArea.com reports.
Impact: Grosenick's injury was likely sustained at some point during practice over the last few days, as he had been cleared to serve as the Sharks' backup for each of the team's previous two games. With Alex Stalock (knee) still on injured reserve, San Jose will have to find an emergency option to slot in behind starting goalie Antti Niemi for Wednesday's game.
News: Niemi will be in the crease Wednesday against the Flames, Brodie Brazil of CSNBayArea.com reports.
Impact: Backup goalie Troy Grosenick is dealing with an undisclosed injury, so coach Todd McLellan doesn't have much of a choice but to roll with Niemi, who likely would have received the start regardless of the circumstance. Niemi has struggled to maintain a record above .500, but he's at least delivered passable ratios thus far.
