Reimer Back On The Ice, But More Injuries Hit The Leafs

from Ryan Wolstat of the Toronto Sun,

(James) Reimer, out since suffering a head injury Oct. 22, against Montreal, last practised on Oct. 26 in Manhattan.

Toronto’ starting goalie, 4-0-1 on the season, was on the ice for about 15 minutes, taking shots from assistant coaches.

Head coach Ron Wilson cautioned Reimer’s conditioning has fallen behind due to his absence and he is still at least 10 days away from returning to action.

The team’s most recently sidelined skaters will miss more than that.

Wilson said defenceman Mike Komisarek and forward Matthew Lombardi will both miss at least three weeks due to undisclosed upper body injuries. Lombardi appeared to suffer a shoulder injury in Thursday’s 4-1 loss to Nashville.

Colby Armstrong remains out long-term, while Mikhail Grabovski is a couple of weeks away from game action.
