Jochen "Joker" Reimer grew up in Mindelheim, Germany. As the the third child, with two older brothers who played hockey, he had no choice but follow in his brother's footsteps and started playing hockey at the age of three. After working his way through the junior hockey system in Germany he signed his first professional contract at the age of 17 with a third division team. Joker would go on to spent one season in the third division and two more in the second league before signing a contract in the German Elite League DEL. Over the course of the next 14 seasons he would play on five teams, amassing over 400 games played, two Final appearances, and was twice named Goalie of the Year. Joker also represented his home country of Germany in many international tournaments including the IIHF World Championships in 2011, the highlight of his national team career. After retiring from professional hockey, Joker and his family relocated to New Jersey and he was named the Director of Goaltending Development for Youth & Junior Hockey at the Ice Vault in Wayne, New Jersey.
