The Philadelphia Flyers have acquired goaltender Dustin Tokarski from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for future considerations, and have assigned him to their American Hockey League affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms, according to general manager Ron Hextall.
Tokarski, 28 (9/16/1989), appeared in 27 games last season with Anaheim's AHL affiliate, the San Diego Gulls, posting a record of 17-8-1-1 with a 2.93 GAA and an .898 save percentage. He joined the Anaheim organization in a trade from Montreal on January 7, 2016 after parts of four seasons with the Canadiens organization. Tokarski was drafted by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the fifth round (122nd overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft and spent parts of four seasons there before being traded to Montreal on February 14, 2013.
Tokarski has appeared in 34 NHL games with Tampa Bay, Montreal and Anaheim, posting a record of 10-12-5 with a 2.84 GAA and a .904 save percentage. He also appeared in five playoff games for Montreal in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
Over the course of eight seasons in the AHL, Tokarski has a record of 146-101-5-17 in 276 appearances with a 2.50 GAA, .910 save percentage and 19 shutouts. He won a Calder Cup with Norfolk in 2012 and was an AHL All-Star in 2013-14. Prior to turning pro, Tokarski won a gold medal with Team Canada at the 2009 World Junior Championship and won the 2008 Memorial Cup with Spokane of the Western Hockey League.
