    Ducks' Dustin Tokarski: Traded to Anaheim, sent to minors

    Tokarski has been traded to the Ducks in exchange for forward Max Friberg. According to Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register, Tokarski will report to AHL San Deigo. Tokarski failed to earn a consistent role with the Canadiens after Carey Price went down with a leg injury. The 26-year-old had only managed one win through six appearances with the Habs this campaign, and his poor rate stats (3.18 GAA, .878 save percentage) left the team deciding to go a different direction. Ben Scrivens, who was acquired from Edmonton on Dec. 28, has joined Mike Condon in an attempt to hold down the fort while Price remains out of action. Meanwhile, Tokarski gives the goalie-starved Ducks another option between the pipes, even though he'll have to bide his time in the minors right off the bat.

    Canadiens' Dustin Tokarski: Assigned to AHL St. John's

    The Canadiens assigned Tokarski to AHL St. John's on Monday, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports. Tokarski posted a subpar 3.18 GAA in his six games with the Canadiens, so the team decided to make a change, sending Tokarski down while acquiring fellow goaltender Ben Scrivens from the Oilers. Tokarski will be fourth in line at the goaltender position when Carey Price is ready to play again, so it remains to be seen if he will be back with the NHL club this season.

    Canadiens' Dustin Tokarski: Pulled from Monday's game

    Tokarski was pulled from Monday's loss to the Predators after allowing three goals on 14 shots. Head coach Michel Therrien was none too pleased with his goalies after Monday's loss, the Canadiens' fourth consecutive and ninth in the last 11 games. But Carey Price is skating on the ice anytime soon, so the coach will have to live with Tokarski and Mike Condon while figuring out the right combinations to generate some offense. Montreal has scored 18 goals in the previous 11 games.

    Canadiens' Dustin Tokarski: In goal Monday

    Tokarski will receive the start in the crease Monday against the Predators. After serving in relief of Mike Condon in Sunday's game against the Stars, Tokarski will receive the starting nod in net Monday. Neither of the two netminders has been overly impressive for the struggling Canadiens, who have now lost seven of the last eight games. Tokarski will look to get things back on track for the club Monday, but will face a tough matchup against a Nashville team that scores 2.94 goals per game at home this season and will presumably have one of the league's top netminders in Pekka Rinne between the pipes.

    Canadiens' Dustin Tokarski: Sees relief duty Saturday against Stars

    Tokarski came into Saturday's game against Dallas in relief of a pulled Mike Condon, stopping all four shots he faced. While Condon was ripped apart by the top team in the NHL, Tokarski only saw 15:33 of crease time and was barely tested. Condon isn't exactly tearing it up with Carey Price (leg) injured, but Tokarski isn't doing himself any favors with a .893 save percentage in five appearances this season. While it wasn't much, Tokarski's perfect relief appearance Saturday could earn him another start fairly soon.

    Canadiens' Dustin Tokarski: Pulled in loss

    Tokarski was yanked halfway through Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Sharks after stopping just nine of the 12 shots he faced. Tokarski ended up being saddled with the loss, and has struggled in four appearances to date. He now has just a .888 save percentage and a 3.23 GAA, so he'll need to improve in his next outing if he wants to see an increase in playing time.

    Canadiens' Dustin Tokarski: Will Start Tuesday

    Tokarski will start in net Tuesday against San Jose. Tokarski played very well in his last outing, earning his first win of the season and giving up just one goal on 26 shots faced against the Senators. His matchup with the Sharks on Tuesday should present another good opportunity to earn a win as San Jose has really been struggling lately, dropping their last six contests. The Sharks are currently in fifth place in the Pacific Division.

    Canadiens' Dustin Tokarski: Can seize more ice time with continued success

    Tokarski made 25 saves in a 3-1 win over Ottawa on Saturday night. It was his second-straight start. Tokarski has a chance to seize more time in the Habs' net and this performance will go some distance to help that. Mike Condon hasn't been awful, but he does seem to be on a slide since he had to become the starter. So, some strong performances for Tokarski could put him back in the hunt for the backup role once Carey Price returns.

    Canadiens' Dustin Tokarski: Starting in crease Saturday

    Tokarski will start in goal Saturday, facing shots from the Senators at home, Dean Brown of TSN1200 reports. Tokarski has only appeared in two games this season, allowing five goals on 42 shots between dates with the Avalanche and Red Wings, respectively. Stopping pucks for the Canadiens (19-8-3) is nice and all, but it's simply hard to predict how the 26-year-old will fare because he's been limited to just 29 NHL games between the Lightning and Canadiens since being drafted with a fifth-round pick in 2008. However, he would surely make a statement if he's able to fend off an Ottawa team that is averaging 3.03 goals per game, fourth most in the NHL.

    Canadiens' Dustin Tokarski: Loses in first NHL start of season

    Tokarski made his first start of the year with the Habs on Thursday, giving up three goals on 29 shots in a road loss to Detroit. He wasn't bad by any stretch, but the Montreal coaching staff can't like seeing the team blow leads late into the third period. Tokarski did just that, as he led 2-1 with less than eight minutes to go, only to give up two goals in a span of 1:11. Still, it's hard to blame the young netminder for the power-play goal that tied the game or Darren Helm's game-winner off a brutal own-zone turnover. Once positioned as a potential goalie of the future for the Canadiens, Tokarski's game has stagnated in the minors this year, as he's posted a 2-3-3 record, .900 save mark and 3.20 GAA for AHL St. Johns. Those numbers in combination with non-elite performances like this will make it hard for Tokarski to encroach too much on Mike Condon's playing time in the absence of Carey Price (leg).
