Date:

The Anaheim Ducks have acquired Dustin Tokarski from the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for Max Friberg.

Some Ducks fans might initially panic at this trade because John Gibson was hurt Wednesday night, so the timing suggests that Gibson's injury might be serious. However, Tokarski is staying in the AHL for now, so while this trade might be related to Gibson's injury, it might just be a case of Anaheim hedging its bets. Tokarski had a 3.18 GAA and .878 save percentage in six games with Montreal this season before being sent to the minors.
Jan 7 - 1:23 PM

Dustin Tokarski has been sent down to the minors.

Montreal made the move after obtaining Ben Scrivens in a trade with the Oilers. Tokarski has appeared in six games with the Canadiens this year, while posting a 1-3-0 record along with an .878 and a 3.19 GAA.

Montreal goalie Dustin Tokarski did not have a night to remember Monday.

Tokarski made 11 saves and allowed three goals in 43:08 before being pulled for Mike Condon in the Predators' 5-1 rout in Nashville. Condon allowed a goal and made three saves. Tokarski has had a rough time in the Montreal net. He has posted a goals-against average of 3.19 and a save percentage of only .878. His record is 1-3-0. Condon hasn't been much better. His GAG is 2.45 and his save percentage is .902. To suggest that the Canadiens miss their injured superstar goalie, Carey Price, would be the epitome of understatement.

Dustin Tokarski will play between the pipes on Monday.

Montreal has dropped seven of its last eight games while Carey Price recovers from a lower-body injury. Tokarski has been a factor in those struggles as he's posted a 2.95 GAA and .893 save percentage in five games.

Dustin Tokarski replaced Mike Condon after 44:27 of work, but turned away all four shots in Saturday's 6-2 win.

For what it's worth, Tokarski has turned away 75 of 84 shots in five games so far this season. With Mike Condon struggling mightily, this could be Tokarski's next best chance at re-establishing himself as an NHL caliber netminder.

Dustin Tokarski was pulled in a 3-1 loss to the San Jose Sharks, allowing three goals on just 12 shots.

Tokarski was able to stop just nine of the 12 shots he faced, ultimately leading to him being pulled from the game. Tokarski didn't get much help with PK Subban and Andrei Markov combining for a minus-5 rating. Tuesday's loss brings the 26-year-old's record to 1-2-0 to go along with a 3.23 goals-against-average and an .888 save percentage.

Dustin Tokarski will make his third straight start Tuesday against San Jose.

He posted his first win of the season on Saturday when he stopped 25 of 26 in a 3-1 victory versus Ottawa.
Mon, Dec 14, 2015 05:09:00 PM

Dustin Tokarski made 25 saves in the Canadiens’ 3-1 win against the Senators on Saturday night.

This should get Tokarski more starts with Carey Price injured and Mike Condon struggling lately. The only blemish on Tokarski’s night came in the second period. He has stopped 62 of 68 shots against him in three games.

Updating an earlier post, it will be Dustin Tokarski in goal for the Habs against the Senators Saturday night and not Mike Condon.

Tokarski played very well in a 3-2 loss to Detroit Thursday night and is being rewarded with another start.
Sat, Dec 12, 2015 11:24:00 AM

Dustin Tokarski allowed three goals on 29 shots in his first start of the season Thursday night, a 3-2 loss to Detroit.

Tokarski now has an .881 save percentage and 3.85 goals against average in his two appearances this season. The Habs are really missing Carey Price at this point.
Thu, Dec 10, 2015 10:36:00 PM

Dustin Tokarski will make his first start of the season on Thursday versus Detroit.

He stopped 11 of 13 shots in one period of work against Colorado on Nov. 14 in his only other NHL action this year. The Canadiens will go with Mike Condon against Boston on Wednesday and Tokarski will get the second game of the back-to-back situation.
Tue, Dec 8, 2015 01:13:00 PM

The Montreal Canadiens have recalled Dustin Tokarski.

The Canadiens continues to shuffle their backup netminders Zachary Fucale and Tokarski between AHL St. John's and Montreal. While Fucale has yet to hit the ice for the Canadiens, Tokarski has turned away 11 of 13 shots in his 20 minutes of work. It's unlikely he'll see much time moving forward, but it's worth noting he owns a career .906 save percentage and 2.85 GAA in 28 NHL games.

Dustin Tokarski has been assigned to the minors.

He didn't see any action with the Canadiens during his latest recall from the minors. Tokarski has been filling in this season as Mike Condon's backup during Carey Price's injury trouble, but he saw action just one time in relief appearance. Zachary Fucale will be Montreal's understudy for the time being, while Tokarski gets into some AHL action.
Mon, Nov 30, 2015 05:16:00 PM

Don't be surprised if Dustin Tokarski gets his first start of the season against the Devils Saturday night.

Mike Condon led the Habs to a 3-2 shootout win over the Devils Friday night in the first of a home-and-home series this weekend. It looks like the perfect time to give Tokarski a start. Stay tuned.
