Source: With Ilya Samsonov injured, familiar face could become Leafs savior in net

The Toronto Maple Leafs goaltending woes continued Saturday night during a 2-1 win against the Boston Bruins.

During the second period, newly signed Leafs goalie Ilya Samsonov injured his knee during a penalty shot attempt by Bruins forward Brad Marchand.

This forced Leafs 3rd string goalie Erik Källgren to come in and play closer for the third period, something he did very well.

However, now that both Leaf goalie acquisitions in the off-season appear to be out for the foreseeable future, it leaves a big question mark in net. Erik Källgren is a fine third string goalie, but not someone you can trust multiple games in a row to.

Sources close to the Toronto Maple Leafs organization have indicated that GM Kyle Dubas has already made a call to the San Jose Sharks about former Leafs goalie James Reimer.

It’s been made clear that the Sharks GM has interest in moving anyone in the hopes of speeding along their rebuild, and the Leafs have a wealth of prospects and future picks that could get the deal done.

In 9 games with the rebuilding San Jose Sharks, Reimer has an impressive .910 save percentage.
