The Maple Leafs have reportedly decided that they won't recognize a relatively popular former player.

According to a report from The Sun's Lance Hornby the Maple Leafs will not formerly recognize former goaltender James Reimer as he makes his return to Toronto this evening, this time as a member of the Florida Panthers.

While it's not official Hornby believes that there is still a chance that the Leafs will put the camera on him for a few moments, although that is mere speculation and remains to be seen.

Leaf fans aren't like to see much of Reimer this evening as he will be playing in a backup role to Panthers veteran goaltender Roberto Luongo, all in all making this a rather lackluster return for Reimer.
