RALEIGH, NC - Don Waddell, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League's Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has acquired goaltender James Reimer from the Florida Panthers in exchange for goaltender Scott Darling and a sixth-round selection in the 2020 NHL Draft.


Looks like we're making goalie a point of emphasis this offseason.

Reimer is an okay backup but I'm not sure I'd like him as the backup if we finally bring Ned up this year. If Ned struggles then Reimer is not a guy you can start day in and day out.

It will be interesting to see what the team looks like after free agency is over.

This was more about saving a couple million over this season and next on buying out Scott Darling.  Reimer will get a chance to be backup, but getting out from underneath the Darling deal is the real win.
