GM Doug Wilson all but said that James Reimer, Nick Spaling, Dainius Zubrus and Roman Polak will not be re-signed before they become UFA's on July 1.
This is no surprise as the Sharks will look to bring some of their cheaper minor leaguers up to do the job. Reimer has a few spots to look at but they will be in a backup role most likely. Teams like Anaheim and Edmonton are in the market for a backup and it remains to be seen where Reimer winds up. He was 17-14-7 with a 2.31 GAA and a .922 save percentage in 40 games with the Sharks and Toronto in 2015-16. Jun 26 - 7:57 AM

James Reimer is expected to test free agency on July 1.

He is likely to find a team that is looking for a number one goalie or a situation where he can compete for the top job. Reimer played well for Toronto and San Jose in 2015-16.

James Reimer admitted that he's already looking at teams that could potentially need a starting goaltender next season.

Reimer is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, but says his primary focus in finishing the job with the San Jose Sharks. "Right now you’re focused on the job at hand. I’m trying to get that silver thing," said Reimer. "(Still), you kind of know what teams are in the market and might need a goalie. I’ve kind of heard too that people who go into free agency, they have their short list of two or three teams they think are in the market. Plus there always are teams that come in from left field. You kind of see here or there potential teams that need goalies. But you have no idea what’s going on behind the scenes and a team that might have a solidified goaltending (landscape)."

James Reimer gave up one goal on seven shots in relief of Martin Jones on Saturday night.

Reimer came in midway through the game after Jones allowed four goals on 19 shots. The Sharks steadied a bit defensively from that point forward. Reimer had not played since April 5. We wouldn’t expect coach Peter DeBoer to turn away from Jones at this point. The series is 2-2 heading to St. Louis.

James Reimer collected his third shutout in eight games with the Sharks during Tuesday's 3-0 win over Minnesota.

Apr 6 - 2:16 AM

James Reimer will start Tuesday's game at Minnesota.

Reimer owns a 5-2-0 record with a 1.85 goals-against average and a .927 save percentage in seven appearances with the Sharks. He will be an option for San Jose in the postseason, but it sounds like Martin Jones will get the nod in Game 1.
Apr 4 - 3:51 PM

James Reimer gave up two goals on 30 shots in the Sharks’ 3-2 shootout win against the Predators on Saturday night.

Reimer allowed the game’s first two goals, then was stingy from 1:38 of the second period forward. He has allowed three goals over his past two starts. Reimer sports a 2.38 GAA and .920 SV%.

Apr 2 - 6:30 PM

James Reimer made 23 saves in a 4-1 win over Vancouver on Tuesday.

Reimer was sharp early and often in this game and was rewarded for it. It was a nice bounce back after allowing five goals in a loss to Edmonton in his last start. Reimer has improved his numbers steadily since coming to the Silicon Valley and now posts a 15-14-7 record to go with a 2.38 GAA and .920 save percentage.
Mar 30 - 2:23 AM

James Reimer will start in goal against Vancouver on Tuesday night.

Reimer has actually already seen Vancouver once while with San Jose, it was in his first game and he lost it while allowing three goals on 25 shots. Since then he's 3-1 with a pair of shutouts. We'd favor Reimer and the Sharks in tonight's rematch.
Mar 29 - 8:44 PM

James Reimer had his first stinker with Sharks during Thursday's 6-3 loss to Edmonton.

James Reimer stopped all 25 shots he faced in a 3-0 win over the Arizona Coyotes on Sunday.

Reimer has now won three straight starts, recording two shutouts during that span. He has allowed only five goals in four games since being traded to the Sharks. He is shaping up as a great pickup for the Sharks who were looking for insurance in goal.
Mar 21 - 12:40 AM

James Reimer will face Arizona on Sunday night.

Through three games with the Sharks, Reimer has gone 2-1-0 with five goals against on 79 combined shots. Not too shabby at all. He allowed four goals on 24 shots to Arizona earlier in the season, but that was while with Toronto.

Reimer, who started his third game since being traded to San Jose from the Toronto Maple Leafs on Feb. 27, made 21 saves on his 28th birthday. The best one came in the final second, when he made a glove save on defenseman Torey Krug's wide-open shot from the left circle. The 28 year-old improved his record to 13-13-7 to go with a 2.42 GAA and .920 save percentage in 35 games this season.
