The Toronto Maple Leafs recalled goaltender Antoine Bibeau on Saturday, raising questions about the status of James Reimer and Jonathan Bernier.

Interim coach Peter Horachek said after an optional morning skate that Bernier would start Saturday night's home game against the Edmonton Oilers.

Reimer played in Friday night's 4-1 road loss to New Jersey Devils and was the only goaltender on the ice at Air Canada Centre.

Reimer did not show any ill effects from being on the ice for almost 45 minutes.

Bibeau was recalled from the AHL's Toronto Marlies under emergency conditions with defenceman Dion Phaneuf put on injured reserve to make room on the roster.

Earlier on Saturday, the Leafs recalled defenceman Petter Granberg.

Horachek wouldn't reveal which defenceman was banged up but said Granberg was called up just in case someone can't play against the Oilers.

Granberg, 22, has yet to record a point in three regular-season games with the Maple Leafs this season.
