Maple Leafs agree to two-year deal with goalie James Reimer

Saturday July 26th, 2014

The Toronto Maple Leafs have agreed to a two-year deal with backup goaltender James Reimer, the team announced.

Reimer will receive $2.6 million this season and $2 million the following year, according to The Associated Press. The 26-year old restricted free agent was due to head to salary arbitration with the team on Monday.

In four seasons with the Maple Leafs, Reimer has a record of 65-48-15. He began the 2013-'14 season as the Toronto starter, but lost the job to Jonathan Bernier, before regaining the role due to Bernier's knee injury.
