Niemi played three seasons in major junior, with the Saskatoon Blades of the Western Hockey League. Unable to agree to terms with the Islanders on May 5, 2010, Niemi's rights were traded by the Islanders to neighboring rivals, the New York Rangers in exchange for a sixth-round draft pick. He was immediately signed to a three-year entry-level contract to begin his professional career.
