BREAKING: Reimer Will Miss Tomorrow’s Game, Should Travel on Road Trip

James Reimer will miss tomorrow night’s game versus the Vancouver Canucks with an injury.

“He’s still not 100 percent, not right,” San Jose Sharks head coach David Quinn told San Jose Hockey Now after practice today. “We held him off.”

This lower-body injury, per Quinn, is related to the injury that Reimer suffered before the San Jose Sharks headed to Seattle on Nov. 23. Reimer didn’t make that trip and Aaron Dell was recalled from the San Jose Barracuda in his stead. That’s the case here too: Dell was recalled this morning and is likely to back up Kaapo Kahkonen tomorrow.

Before Nov. 23, Reimer hadn’t missed a game this season, and the 34-year-old netminder was apparently right as rain enough to start yesterday’s 5-2 loss to the Los Angeles Kings. Reimer did give up two long, unobstructed goals from Victor Arvidsson and Rasmus Kupari in the dispiriting defeat, but he looked his normal self taking questions from the media afterwards.

But Quinn noted today: “Nothing happened in-game, was really more post-game.”

Quinn is hoping that Reimer misses just one game again.

The bench boss believes that Reimer will be available to travel with the San Jose Sharks to Canada after tomorrow’s SAP Center tilt. The Sharks are taking on the Montreal Canadiens, Toronto Maple Leafs, Ottawa Senators, and Buffalo Sabres, starting on Nov. 29.

Reimer isn’t out of the woods yet though. Quinn kept the door open to bringing three goalies on the road trip.

“I’m going to go up and have a meeting about that right now,” Quinn said.

For his part, Dell shared that he got the call to come over to Sharks Ice this morning. Good thing, he was already at Tech CU Arena, about to practice with Sharks director of goaltending Evgeni Nabokov, when he got the call to go across the hallway.
