The Maple Leafs were once again without goalie James Reimer at practice Wednesday as he remained out with an upper body injury. Ben Scrivens was called up to take Reimer’s place as Jussi Rynnas was back with the Marlies a day after making his NHL debut in the 3-0 loss.
This is the second time that Scrivens has been with the Leafs this season. He was with the Leafs in early November and saw action in eight games, starting seven. He was 2-4-1 with a 2.96 GAA and a .904SV%. Scrivens won his first NHL start against Columbus allowing one goal on 39 shots.
Following practice head coach Randy Carlyle said that the Leafs goaltending situation will change again between today and tomorrow. They are being cautious with Reimer like they would any player who suffered a previous injury
