Less than 24 hours after suffering what appeared to be a serious injury James Reimer was back on the ice. It was a welcome sight for the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Just in case, the Leafs had University of Toronto goalie Michael Nishi on the ice, in the event Reimer couldn’t practice.
For Nishi – who played some goal in the Ontario Hockey League and the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League – it was an “eye opening experience.”
“I’m honoured,” said the 19 year-old. “My family has (Leafs) season tickets so when I was growing up I went to quite a few games.”
On this day he was sharing the goal with Reimer, who told Nishi to “have fun.”
The Leafs called in the teenager keeping in mind what happened two years ago to Reimer. Reimer suffered a serious neck

His goaltending apparently back in proper alignment following James Reimer’s head scare on Thursday night Maple Leafs coach Randy Carlyle has turned his attention to the next obstacle on his team’s schedule.
