The Toronto Maple Leafs will have goaltender Jonathan Bernier in the lineup Wednesday when they visit the Boston Bruins.
Bernier has missed two games due to the flu.
James Reimer started both games in Bernier’s absence losing 6-4 to the Florida Panthers on Sunday night and 3-2 to the Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday.
Christopher Gibson, who backed up Reimer in both games, has been reassigned to the American Hockey League’s Toronto Marlies.
Bernier is 14-8-3 this season while posting a 2.65 G.A.A. and a .921 save percentage.
Jonathan Bernier travelled with his Leafs teammates this morning as the team headed for Tampa Bay where they play the Lightning tonight in the second half of a back-to-back.
Bernier missed Sunday’s 6-4 loss to the Florida Panthers with flu-like symptoms.
Leafs’ coach Randy Carlyle admitted prior to last night’s game that the team was being cautious as one of the issues the team is concerned about is the mumps.
No member of the Leafs’ team has been diagnosed with the mumps this season.
Rookie Christopher Gibson was recalled to backup James Reimer in Sunday night’s loss.
The Leafs are 1-2-0 on their current eight-game road trip.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have placed forward Leo Komarov on injured reserve and recalled goaltender Christopher Gibson from the American Hockey League’s Toronto Marlies.
Komarov has been sidelined with a concussion since taking a hit from Capitals captain Alexander Ovechkin on Nov. 29.
The 27-year-old forward has four goals and 16 points in 23 games this season.
The move was made, in part, to free up a roster spot to recall Gibson.
Gibson, 22, is 6-9-2 with a 2.52 G.A.A. and a .919 save percentage in 17 AHL games this season.
