The netminder was traded from the Toronto Maple Leafs to the San Jose Sharks prior to the trade deadline. The 28-year-old was excellent with the Sharks, posting a 1.62 goals-against average and .938 save percentage in eight appearances. Overall, Reimer went 17-14-7 with a 2.31GAA, .922 save percentage and three shutouts in 40 games split between the Sharks and Leafs.
“I’m just hoping I can do my part and make sure that we win,” Reimer told reporters in Florida Friday.
Reimer was sellected 99th overall by the Maple Leafs in 2006. He is 91-78-23 with a 2.79GAA, .914 save percentage and 14 shutouts in in 215 NHL regular season games. Reimer has little playoff experience. In 2013 he started every post-season contest for the Maple Leafs in a heartbreaking seven-game series loss to the Bruins. He had a .921 save percentage in that series.
