Dustin Tokarski has been sent to AHL Hamilton for a conditioning stint.

Tokarski hasn't been used since Nov. 29 and with Montreal's upcoming schedule light, he wasn't likely to play in the near future. He has a 2.44 GAA and .914 save percentage in seven contests this season.
Dec 19 - 2:12 PM

It is likely that Dustin Tokarski will get the start Saturday night against Dallas.

Carey Price had a difficult game against the Blackhawks Friday night and Montreal coach Michel Therrien will likely opt to star Tokarski in the second of back-to-back road games.
Dec 6 - 10:39 AM

Dustin Tokarski may get the nod on Saturday against Dallas.

Montreal plays in Chicago on Friday, so Carey Price and Tokarski might split the back-to-back situation. The Canadiens had a day off Thursday, so no hints were provided. We'll keep you posted.
Dec 4 - 3:19 PM

Dustin Tokarski gave up three goals on 26 shots in the Candiens’ 4-3 shootout loss to the Sabres on Saturday night.

Tokarski was making his first start since Nov. 23, his seventh game of the season. The netminder has given up eight goals in his last two games. Tokarski has a 2.44 goals-against average and .914 save percentage this year.
Nov 29 - 10:35 PM

Dustin Tokarski will be in net for the Canadiens Saturday night versus the Sabres.

Carey Price was between the pipes Friday night, so Tokarski will get the nod Saturday night. He will go for his fourth win of the season in his seventh appearance.
Nov 29 - 6:10 PM

Dustin Tokarski allowed five goals on 34 shots in Montreal's 5-0 loss to the New York Rangers on Sunday.

Even though his numbers weren't pretty, this loss wasn't Tokarski's fault. The Habs came out with no emotion in the second game of their back-to-back this weekend. It's the first time this season that Tokarski has allowed more than two goals in a start (he allowed three in a relief appearance vs. Tampa Bay). The 25-year-old has been solid for Montreal, but he has no fantasy value because he's stuck behind Carey Price. Tokarski is 3-2-0 with a 2.37 goals-against-average and a .919 save percentage. He would only be worth owning if Price went down to injury.
Nov 23 - 9:55 PM

Dustin Tokarski will get the start Sunday against the Rangers.

Carey Price will face the Bruins Saturday night as the Habs have back-to-back games this weekend. Tokarski's last start was a good one. He defeated Detroit 4-1 last Sunday stopping 28 shots.
Nov 22 - 11:25 AM

Dustin Tokarski stopped 28 of 29 shots in Montreal’s 4-1 win over Detroit.

Tokarski was also named the game’s first star. The 25-year-old hasn’t played much this season because he’s stuck behind Carey Price, but he has played well as the backup goaltender. Tokarski hasn’t allowed more than two goals in any of his four starts. Unfortunately he doesn’t get enough playing time to be relevant in fantasy leagues.
Nov 16 - 10:00 PM

Although it has yet to be confirmed, look for Dustin Tokarski to get the start against Detroit on Sunday.

Carey Price will be between the pipes Saturday night against the Flyers so Tokarski will likely draw in against the Red Wings in the second of back-to-back games.
Nov 15 - 10:28 AM

Goalie Dustin Tokarski, giving a rare night off to first-string goaltender Carey Price, turned aside 24 of the 25 shots he faced Wednesday night in the Montreal Canadiens' 2-1 shootout win over the Sabres in Buffalo.

Tokarski was playing in his fourth game of the season and improved his record to 2-1. He also improved his goals-against average to 2.01 and his save percentage to .929.
Nov 5 - 10:42 PM

The Montreal Canadiens will start Dustin Tokarski on Wednesday.

Tokarski has a 2.50 GAA and .909 save percentage in three games this season. He's serving as Carey Price's understudy, which isn't a role that leads to much playing time.
Nov 5 - 12:40 PM

The Edmonton Oilers mustered up only 18 shots on Montreal's Dustin Tokarski Monday night but two of them got past the second-string goaltender and the Canadiens were defeated 3-0.

The third Edmonton goal, scored by Taylor Hill (his fifth of the season), was into an empty net as the Canadiens pulled Tokarski for an extra attacker. Tokarski's record this season fell to 1-1. His goals-against average is now 2.50. His save percentage is .909. The Canadiens will be in Alberta again Tuesday night to face the Flames in Calgary and look for first-stringer Carey Price to be back in their net.
Oct 28 - 12:25 AM

Dustin Tokarski will get the nod against Edmonton on Monday night.

He has one win in two appearances this year to go with a .917 save percentage and a 2.82 goals-against average. The Canadiens play in Calgary on Tuesday and Carey Price will likely get the start for that contest.
Oct 27 - 2:18 PM

Dustin Tokarski continued his excellent netminding ways in the Thursday night's shootout victory in Washington.

He stopped 29-30 through 65 minutes of play, allowing just Andre Burakovsky's first career goal offer a terrible turnover by PK Subban. Price's job is safe, but the Habs seem to have themselves perhaps the best backup in the game if you buy into Tokarski's playoff performance from last year.
