Following practice Monday afternoon in Brossard, the Canadiens announced they had recalled goaltender Zachary Fucale from the St. John's IceCaps, while Dustin Tokarski has been reassigned back to the Habs’ AHL affiliate.
In 12 outings this season with St. John's, Fucale has a 7-2-1 record with a goals against average of 3.12 and a save percentage of .907. Fucale, who is in his first season of professional hockey in the AHL, earns his first call up to the NHL.
Tokarski has not seen action since being recalled by the Canadiens on Thursday November 26. He last made an appearance in relief of Mike Condon on November 14, allowing two goals on 13 shots. The IceCaps will play three games in the next few days, hitting the ice on December 2, 4 and 5.
