Stingrays get D-man Ryan Grimshaw from Toronto

For those of you following me on Twitter, this is old news, but former Trenton Titan D-man Ryan Grimshaw has joined the team from the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League.

Grimshaw was assigned to the Rays by Toronto on Monday. He will be in the lineup Friday night against Gwinnett.

Grimshaw, 23, dressed in 16 games with the Marlies netting one assist. Acquired by the Stingrays in a trade with the Trenton Titans on March 7, the Rochester, New York, native recorded six points (three goals, three assists) in 23 games with the Titans earlier this season. Currently in his first full professional season, Grimshaw attended Harvard University for four seasons totaling 26 points (four goals, 22 assists) in 121 contests.

Meanwhile, former Stingrays goalie James Reimer has been the ECHL Alumnus of the Month for March.

He is the second former Stingrays receive the honor. The first being Braden Holtby back in December.

Reimer was 6-1-4 with one shutout, a 2.57 goals-against average and a save percentage of .918 in 11 appearances during the month. Reimer made a season-high 39 saves in a 5-4 win against Ottawa on March 6 and followed that up three nights later with 37 saves in a 5-4 shootout loss against Pittsburgh. He ended the month making 31 saves to record his second shutout of the season in a 4-0 win at Ottawa on March 30.

Selected by the Maple Leafs in the fourth round (99th overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft, Reimer has appeared in 22 games this season posting a record of 13-4-4 with two shutouts, a 2.52 goals-against average and a save percentage of .920.

A native of Morweena, Manitoba, Reimer was 10-7-3 with a 3.30 goals-against average and a save percentage of .904 in 22 games with Reading and 6-0-0 with two shutouts, a 1.32 goals-against average and a save percentage of .961 in six games with South Carolina during the 2008-09 season. He backstopped the Stingrays to the 2009 Kelly Cup title, and was named Most Valuable Player of the Kelly Cup Playoffs, going 4-3 with one shutout, a 2.17 goals-against average and a save percentage of .929 in eight appearances.
