The season is not quite done yet for a pair of Toronto Maple Leafs players.

Goaltender James Reimer and defenceman Morgan Rielly have agreed to represent Canada at the 2014 IIHF World Championship.

The 26-year-old Reimer appeared in 36 games for the Leafs this season, posting a 12-16-1 record with a 3.29 goals-against average and a .911 save percentage.

Rielly, 20, posted two goals and 25 assists through 73 games this season, finishing the season second among all rookie NHL defencemen in assists and sixth in points at 27.

Toronto finished sixth in the Atlantic Division with a 38-36-8 record.

Reimer previously represented Canada at the 2011 World Championship, posting a 3-0 record with a .920 save percentage. Canada would finish fifth at the tournament. The Morweena, Man. native was also selected to represent Canada at the World Under-18 Championships but did not play due to injury.

Rielly, a Vancouver native, has represented Canada at both the 2011 Under-18s and 2013 World Juniors, finishing fourth at both tournaments.

The World Championship begins May 9 in Minsk, Belarus. Canada has been drawn into Group A alongside Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Italy, Norway, Slovakia and Sweden.
