Tokarski was recalled by the Canadiens on Thursday. He, along with Christian Thomas, was recalled to boost the team's depth heading into the weekend. With Carey Price banged up, Tokarski should serve as the occasional goalie behind Mike Condon.
Tokarski was reassigned to AHL St. John's on Thursday. Tokarski's move back to the AHL comes on the heels of the news that star goaltender Carey Price will return to the crease Friday. The netminder saw action in just one game for the Canadiens while he was with the club, and that came in relief of Mike Condon. Tokarski will now return to a role of organizational depth should either of Montreal's two current goalies get hurt.
Tokarski was recalled from AHL St. John's on Sunday to replace the injured Carey Price (lower body). Tokarski has played six games with St. John's so far this season and has allowed a less than stellar 3.45 goals GAA. He'll take backup duties while Mike Condon moves into the starting role.
Tokarski had a win and a loss over the weekend in his first games with the St. John's IceCaps of the American Hockey League. Tokarski started well, stopping 30 of 31 shots in Saturday's win over Hartford, but then allowed six goals in 29 shots in a loss to Bridgeport on Sunday. With Michael Condon playing well in his Montreal debut Sunday, Tokarski will need to accept his present fate as St. John's No. 1 goalie.
Dustin Tokarski cleared waivers and was assigned to St. John's of the American Hockey League, Hockey Inside Out reports.
