Reimer stays with Maple Leafs after signing two-year deal

Toronto, ON, Canada (4E Sports) - Toronto Maple Leafs signed goaltender James Reimer to a two-year, $4.6 million contract. Reimer will get $2.6 million next season and $2 million in the 2015-2016 season.
Reimer will be an unrestricted free agent after the deal is done.
A salary arbitration hearing between the team and Reimer was scheduled on July 28, according to the NHL.
The 26-year-old was looking for a salary deal that would benefit him and the Maple Leafs.
General manager Dave Nonis stated that Reimer did not indicate he wanted off the team.
"I went back to him and said, 'I don't have something that I would feel comfortable doing and we prefer to sign you,'" Nonis added.
Reimer played 36 games for the Maple Leafs in the 2013-2014 season, losing his starting stint to Jonathan Bernier who joined the team last year.
He went 12-16-1 last season with a 3.29 goals-against average and .911 save percentage.
Reimer's best showing was in the 2012-2013 season, when he was 19-8-5 with a 2.46 GAA and .924 save percentage.
He then helped the Leafs return to the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2004.
Reimer was picked 99th overall by the Maple Leafs in the 2006 NHL Draft.
