Playing career[edit]

He played junior hockey in the Western Hockey League. He was traded to the Lethbridge Hurricanes from the Tri-City Americans on May 3, 2012.

In January 2015, Rimmer was diagnosed with testicular cancer.[1] By March, 2015, Rimmer made a full recovery and joined Oklahoma City Barons for remainder of 2014–15 season.

On May 27, 2015, Rimmer remained in the Edmonton Oilers organization in signing a one-year AHL contract with the Bakersfield Condors.[2] Rimmer appeared in 6 games with the Condors before he was reassigned to new ECHL affiliate, the Norfolk Admirals.

After three seasons within the Oilers affiliates, Rimmer left as a free agent and agreed to a one-year deal with Italian club, WSV Sterzing Broncos for the inaugural season in the Alps Hockey League on September 21, 2016.[3]

Rimmer played one season in Italy before returning to North America and the ECHL, agreeing to a one-year deal with the Kansas City Mavericks on August 30, 2017.[4] Prior to the commencement of the 2017–18 season, Rimmer was traded before appearing with the Mavericks to fellow ECHL outfit, the Greenville Swamp Rabbits, on October 8, 2017.[5]
