Carlyle can’t say if Reimer will return

- March 29th, 2012

There’s a strong possibility the Maple Leafs won’t have the services of goalie James Reimer again this season.
Reimer was nowhere to be seen on Thursday morning as the Leafs prepared for their game against the Philadelphia Flyers.
Reimer is out with an upper-body injury. He missed 18 games after he suffered a concussion against the Montreal Canadiens on Oct. 22.
“There will be probably a point where there will be a decision made if he is going to return or not,” Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said. “I think that is in the medical people’s hands right now. We just have to wait from clearance from everybody involved to put the player back on the ice.
“The time frame, I can’t give you that because I don’t know it. Is there a drop-dead date? I am sure there is going to be something. When that is, I don’t know.”
Jonas Gustavsson will start against the Flyers and will be backed up by Jussi Rynnas.
