Tokarski held out for precautionary reasons
The two Lightning goaltenders here at the Florida Rookie Tournament are Jaroslav Janus and Pat Nagle. Not with the team is highly-regarded prospect Dustin Tokarski. According to Lightning goaltending coach Frantz Jean, Tokarski has a muscle pull and has been held out as a precaution. Frantz said Tokarski was on the ice earlier today and is expected to be ready when training camp opens next week.
Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
