    Former Sharks goalie Reimer signs with Panthers

    James Reimer has moved on from the Sharks,

    The goalie signed a five-year deal with the Florida Panthers on Friday morning.

    The contract is reportedly worth $17 million.

    The 28-year-old goalie was acquired by San Jose on Feb. 27, and posted a stellar 6-2-0 record with a 1.62 goals-against average and .938 save percentage in eight regular season games with the Sharks, giving starter Martin Jones some much needed rest before the postseason.

    The Sharks are thought to be searching for a backup goalie to replace Reimer now that free agency season opened at 9 a.m. PT.

    Along with Reimer, nine other Sharks became unrestricted free agents on Friday morning: Aaron Dell, Micheal Haley, Bryan Lerg, John McCarthy, Frazer McLaren, Roman Polak, Nick Spaling, Karl Stollery and Dainius Zubrus.

    Goalie Alex Stalock, who was traded to Toronto as part of the deal for Reimer after parts of five seasons with San Jose, reportedly signed with Minnesota.
