Tokarski was reassigned to AHL San Diego on Wednesday, Helene Elliott of the LA Times reports. Tokarski filled in as the backup Tuesday against the Kings, but heads back to the minors without making an appearance on the ice this time around. The netminder is 2-1-0 in three games with the Gulls along with a disappointing 4.04 GAA and will likely spend the bulk of the season in the AHL, barring injuries. Tokarski's reassignment likely means that Jonathan Bernier (upper body) is at least healthy enough to dress for Wednesday's matchup with Pittsburgh.
Tokarski was called up Tuesday from AHL San Diego. Tokarski's promotion likely shows some concern from the Ducks about whether Jonathan Bernier (upper body) will be able to slot into the backup role behind John Gibson on Tuesday. If Bernier is in fact out long term, Tokarski could potentially start one of the two back-to-back games Tuesday and Wednesday. Even if the 27-year-old does get a starting nod, his fantasy value is limited as he will almost certainly head back to the minors as soon as Bernier is cleared to return.
Tokarski was reassigned to AHL San Diego on Saturday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports. The Ducks do not play again until Tuesday's road clash with the Kings, so perhaps he's heading down to the minors with an AHL game on tap Saturday evening.
Tokarski was called up Wednesday from AHL San Diego, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports. Tokarski will slot in as the backup in Anaheim with Jonathan Bernier (upper body) currently sidelined. Last season, the netminder saw action in just six games with Montreal in which he posted a 3.18 GAA. The Ducks will primarily utilize starter John Gibson, but if Tokarski gets into a game, fantasy owners may want to consider other goalie options when you factor in his limited NHL experience.
Tokarski has re-signed with the Ducks. The Ducks may have an open competition for the backup job behind John Gibson during training camp, which would give Tokarski a chance to hang around with the big club if he emerges as the best option. He spent last season working mostly in the AHL, playing in just two games with the Ducks' AHL affiliate in San Diego after he was acquired by Anaheim in January.
