David Nonis figures Ben Scrivens can be the guy in James Reimer’s absence.

“Ben has played very well for us this season and we expect that to continue until James is ready to return,” Nonis, the Maple Leafs general manager, said in an e-mail on Tuesday afternoon.

“(We’re) thankful that it’s not a serious or long-term injury (for Reimer).”

The word from the Leafs is that Reimer is expected to be out a minimum of one week after he suffered a mild medial collateral ligament (MCL) strain in his left knee during Monday’s 5-2 victory against the Philadelphia Flyers.
