TORONTO (AP) — Goalie James Reimer and the Toronto Maple Leafs avoided salary arbitration, agreeing to a two-year contract Thursday.

Reimer's agent, Ray Petkau, confirmed the deal on Twitter.

Reimer, a restricted free agent, and the Leafs were scheduled to go to arbitration Monday.

Reimer lost the starting job to Jonathan Bernier last season, but was forced into service with Toronto's playoff hopes on the line when Bernier sustained a knee injury that ended his season.

The 26-year-old goalie was 12-16-1 with a 3.29 goals-against average last season. In four seasons with Toronto, he's 65-48-15 with a 2.85 GAA.
