Dustin Tokarski has been called up by the Montreal Canadiens.
No surprise there. Carey Price has been sidelined once again, so Tokarski is back with Montreal. Although Tokarski has spent a fair amount of time with Montreal so far, he still has just 20 minutes worth of playing time in the NHL this season. Nov 26 - 5:46 PM

With the return of Carey Price for Friday's tilt with the Islanders, Dustin Tokarski has been sent back down to AHL St. John's.

Tokarski didn't see a lick of NHL ice while he was up with the squad, as Mike Condon filled in admirably for the injured Price. Considering that Condon went 5-2-2 with a .913 save percentage and a 2.23 GAA in that time, we wouldn't expect to see Tokarski again unless there's illness, trade, suspension, or an injury to Condon or Price.

Dustin Tokarski's preseason struggles continued on Saturday night, as he allowed five goals on 15 shots in a 5-4 loss to the Ottawa Senators.

Tokarski came into training as the favorite to be Carey Price's backup, but his poor performances may have cost him the job. The Canadiens will now decide if Tokarski has done enough to keep his job or if they prefer to keep rookie Mike Condon with the big club. Condon has been much better than Tokarski during the preseason, but one thing working against him is that he has a two-way contract while Tokarski is on a one-way deal.

Dustin Tokarski feels he learned a lot from watching Carey Price play last season.

He didn't get to play much behind the Ted Lindsay Award, Vezina and Hart Trophy winner, but that won't change his mindset going into 2015-16. "I'm going to come into camp and battle just as if it was last year and I'm scratching and clawing to make the team," said Tokarski. "I'll go into camp and go to work and not take anything for granted." He started just 16 games last year, while posting six wins, a 2.75 goals-against average and a .910 save percentage.
