Manitoban James Reimer to start in goal tonight as Toronto Maple Leafs visit the Winnipeg Jets

Steve Mitchell-US PRESSWIRE

The Arborg, Manitoba product will make his second ever start in his home province tonight as the Toronto Maple Leafs pay a visit to the Winnipeg Jets.

Though this should be to the surprise of no one, the Toronto Maple Leafs will call on goaltender James Reimer to start tonight's game against the Winnipeg Jets.

The 24-year old Arborg, Manitoba native will make his seventh start of the season, as reported by the Globe and Mail's James Mirtle:

Reimer has played admirably in light of the swirling Roberto Luongo to T.O. trade rumours, posting a 3-3-0 record along with a .917 SV%.

This will be the second time Reimer starts a game in his home province, the first being a 3-2 loss on New Year's Eve 2011 in which he stopped 32 of 35 shots.

Also making his return to the city of Winnipeg for the first time since coaching the Manitoba Moose is Randy Carlyle, now coach of the Leafs.
