The Philadelphia Flyers have recalled goaltender Dustin Tokarski from their AHL affiliate, the Lehigh Valley Phantoms today, according to general manager Ron Hextall.
Tokarski will join the team in Pittsburgh for Game 1 on Wednesday. He will wear #35.
The 28-year-old netminder appeared in 38 games for the Phantoms this season, posting a 19-8-12 record to go along with a 2.67 goals-against average and .914 save percentage. He helped Lehigh Valley clinch a berth in the playoffs and secure the Atlantic Division title after going 4-1-2 in his last seven starts.
The Flyers acquired Tokarski from the Anaheim Ducks on Oct. 9, 2017 in exchange for future considerations.
Tokarski does have Stanley Cup Playoff experience. He has appeared in five playoff games for Montreal in the 2014 Stanley Cup Playoffs, and has played 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 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.
