James Reimer is fine — good news after the Maple Leafs’ goalie was forced to leave last night’s game versus Carolina due to a collision with a teammate.

“I had a bit of a headache so the doctor felt it was in my best interest that I stay out for the rest of the game,” said Reimer after practicing Friday, per “I came in this morning and felt pretty good. I rode the bike and worked out before I hit the ice and when I got on the ice I felt pretty good.”

Last night’s collision was especially worrying for the Leafs, given it was only two years ago they lost Reimer to a head injury for an extended period.

Fortunately, it doesn’t seem that will be the case this time.

“I woke up this morning feeling pretty good and did a few things to get my heart rate up and nothing got worse,” he said.

In other Leafs injury news, it sounds like forward James van Riemsdyk is a go for Saturday’s contest in Chicago after missing two games with back spasms.

    What a p*ssy.

    Maybe it would have been a better idea to fake an injury against the B’s in game 7…….just a thought.

      Do you really think he’d be faking an injury when he knows his #1 goaltender spot isn’t secure? What a genius comment..

      Probably the worst comment I’ve seen on this site.
