Dustin Tokarski agreed to a one-year contract with the New York Rangers on Monday. Financial terms were not released.
The 28-year-old goalie, who last played in the NHL in 2016-17 for the Anaheim Ducks, was 20-8-7 with a 2.65 goals-against average, a .915 save percentage and five shutouts in 39 games with Lehigh Valley of the American Hockey League last season. He will compete in Rangers training camp with Marek Mazanec and Alexandar Georgiev to be the backup to Henrik Lundqvist.
Selected by the Tampa Bay Lightning in the fifth round (No. 122) of the 2008 NHL Draft, Tokarski is 10-12-5 with a 2.84 GAA, a .904 save percentage and one shutout in 34 NHL games (27 starts) with the Lightning, Montreal Canadiens and Ducks.
Tokarski is 2-3 with a 2.60 GAA and .916 save percentage in five Stanley Cup Playoff games with the Canadiens against the Rangers in the 2014 Eastern Conference Final after Carey Price sustained a lower-body injury in Game 1.
