Reimer was traded to the Hurricanes from the Panthers on Sunday in exchange for Scott Darling and a 2020 sixth-round pick, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports.
The Hurricanes were reportedly in the mix for several goaltenders this offseason, but found their man via trade. Last season, Remier was a pedestrian 13-12-5 to go along with a 3.09 GAA and .900 save percentage on a struggling Panthers squad. At this point, it's safe to assume the 31-year-old will battle with incumbent Petr Mrazek for the bulk of the starts next season.
Reimer was pulled from Tuesday's 6-1 loss to Montreal after giving up three goals on nine shots, all of which were scored in the game's opening period.
Reimer hadn't played since Feb. 26 and it showed in his performance, as he was replaced by Sam Montembeault after just 14:28. Considering what we saw Tuesday, it may be a little while before Reimer sees the Florida crease again.
In a change of plans, Reimer will start in goal Tuesday against the Canadiens in Montreal.
The original plan involved using Roberto Luongo on Tuesday, but he was forced into extended action Monday night, leaving Reimer to take on the duties against the Canadiens. Montreal has tallied 11 goals combined in its last two home games and Reimer hasn't made an appearance in goal since Feb. 26, so he may have to knock some rust off. He's 1-1-0 in his two starts against the Canadiens this season, having let in seven pucks on 58 shots between the two contests.
Reimer (undisclosed) will back up Samuel Montembeault for Friday's game against the Wild, George Richards of The Athletic reports.
Reimer has missed the last five games due to an undisclosed injury, but he's evidently now healthy and ready to rejoin the lineup. The 30-year-old's next opportunity to start in goal could arrive as soon as Sunday against the Red Wings.
Reimer is expected to miss at least a week due to his undisclosed injury, George Richards of The Athletic reports.
Reimer's absence will likely provide Samuel Montembeault with the opportunity to make his NHL debut during the Panthers' upcoming back-to-back against the Hurricanes and Senators on Saturday and Sunday, respectively. As long as Florida is still in playoff contention, which is starting to slip away, Roberto Luongo figures to see the bulk of the starts even if Reimer is healthy.
Reimer (lower body) won't return to Tuesday's game versus the Coyotes, George Richards of The Athletic reports.
The non-contact nature of Reimer's injury is concerning, but there's still no report on the severity of his condition. Roberto Luongo will finish the game. Luongo will likely start Thursday versus the Golden Knights.
Reimer (undisclosed) exited Tuesday's game versus the Coyotes with an injury, Dave Vest of the Coyotes' official site reports.
It appears this was a non-contact injury. Reimer stopped all 10 shots before departing and was replaced by Roberto Luongo in goal. If Reimer's injury keeps him sidelined for Thursday's game versus the Golden Knights, the Panthers will need to recall a netminder from AHL Springfield. Samuel Montembeault appears to be next in line.
Reimer will defend the road net in Tuesday's game versus the Coyotes, Doug Plagens of The Panthers Radio Network reports.
Reimer has been inconsistent lately with a .903 save percentage over the last five outings, and his game has been even worse on the road where he has an .889 save percentage. The 30-year-old backstop is tough to depend on, and the Coyotes are starting to pick up some steam with three straight wins and 10 total goals in that span. Fantasy owners should proceed with caution.
Reimer turned aside just 21 of 25 shots in Thursday's 4-3 loss to Carolina.
Three goals in a 4:15 stretch gave the Panthers a 3-2 lead entering the third period, but Reimer promptly coughed up a pair of power-play goals in the first 2:15 of the final frame to come away with the loss. This poor performance stunts the momentum Reimer had built up with wins in each of his previous three starts.
Reimer will patrol the blue paint in Thursday's home game against the Hurricanes, George Richards of The Athletic reports.
The Panthers are riding the hot hand, as Reimer has won three straight games, and you'd have to go all the way back to Jan. 15 to see the last time he allowed more than three goals in a single contest. Reimer will be challenged by a Hurricanes team that ranks No. 1 overall in shots on goal (35.4 per game), though only 11 clubs have had a tougher time putting the puck in the net than Carolina this season.
Reimer held the Sabres to two goals on 34 shots Tuesday, earning a 4-2 win.
Reimer's now won three in a row in the past six days and hasn't given up more than three goals in any of those three contests. Outside of an awful Feb. 10 against Tampa Bay, he's played very well on this lengthy Florida homestand.
Reimer will tend the twine for Tuesday's home tilt versus Buffalo, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.
With Roberto Luongo away from the team for personal reasons, Reimer figures to see the bulk of the starts until the veteran returns. Looking ahead to the rest of the season, the two tenders will likely split the workload even as a playoff spot appears to be slipping away.
Reimer stopped 28 of 31 shots in Sunday's 6-3 win over the Canadiens.
Florida helped its goaltender by jumping out to 2-0 and 3-1 leads in the opening period but afforded the Habs enough opportunities whereby they were able to tie the game early in the second period. Aleksandar Barkov then took over Sunday's contest, winding up with a hat trick on a game-high seven shots. It's now back-to-back wins for Reimer, who's improved his record to 12-10-5 with a 3.05 GAA and .901 save percentage.
Reimer will defend the home twine in Sunday's game versus the Canadiens, George Richards of The Athletic reports.
With Roberto Luongo on leave due to a death in his family, Reimer will patrol the blue paint for the second straight game. He's been solid since the All-Star break with a .927 save percentage, although his 2-2-0 record isn't as flattering. Montreal enters this contest at 17th in the league with 2.95 goals per game and the second-worst power play at 13.1 percent.
Reimer made 41 saves in a 3-2 shootout win over the Flames on Thursday night.
Optimus Reims was dialed in Thursday and helped his kitties break a two-game skid. Those 41 saves were a season high. Reimer has been below average in his outings this season. In eight starts in 2019, he is 3-3-2. He's 3-0 in games where he has allowed two or fewer goals, but is 0-3-2 in games where he has allowed three or more. You get the point. You're rolling the dice with Reimer when you put him out there. But give him Thursday -- that was sweet.
Reimer will defend the cage in Thursday's tilt against Calgary, George Richards of The Athletic reports.
The 2018-19 season hasn't been kind to Reimer. Across 30 games, he owns a 10-10-5 record, 3.10 GAA and .898 save percentage while serving as Roberto Luongo's understudy. Reimer was yanked in his last start after allowing three goals on 12 shots and will be trying to bounce back against a Flames team that is winless in its last three games.
Reiner got the start Sunday against the Panthers but was pulled after two periods, trailing 3-2 in a game Florida eventually lost 5-2.
Reimer stopped only nine shots on 12 attempts, though Roberto Luongo didn't fare much better in the third period, allowing two more on 11 shots.
Reimer will draw the start against the Lightning on Sunday.
In his last appearance against the Lightning, Reimer was rocked for five goals in an overtime loss Dec. 1. The 30-year-old owns a .901 save percentage and 3.07 in what's been a trying 2018-19 campaign. A matchup against one of the league's most dangerous offenses doesn't supply much faith for Reimer on Sunday.
Reimer stopped 31 of 34 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Blues.
The 30-year-old netminder took a shutout into the third period, but after Aleksander Barkov handed him a 2-0 lead just 30 seconds into the frame, the wheels quickly fell off for Florida. He continues to split time with Roberto Luongo, but Reimer's 2-2-2 record, 2.76 GAA and .914 save percentage through seven outings in 2019 don't suggest he's going to claim the No. 1 job outright any time soon.
Reimer will guard the crease at home against the Blues on Tuesday, George Richards of The Athletic reports.
Reimer earned a second consecutive start after stopping 34 of 35 shots versus the Golden Knights on Saturday. The Panthers will likely continue to ride the hot hand this season, which could see the 30-year-old snatch a few starts away from Roberto Luongo down the stretch.
