  • Sabres' Dustin Tokarski: Promoted from AHL

    Tokarski was summoned from AHL Rochester on Monday.

    Tokarski served as Eric Comrie's backup in Thursday's 4-0 loss to Florida because Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen was out due to a lower-body injury. It's unclear at this time why Tokarski is back with the Sabres.

  • Sabres' Dustin Tokarski: Returned to minors

    Tokarski was reassigned to AHL Rochester on Friday.

    Tokarski's demotion likely indicates the team expects Ukka-Pekka Luukkonen (lower body) to at least be available to serve as the backup against the Wild on Saturday. The 34-year-old Tokarski has played in just four NHL games over the last two seasons and figures to remain the Sabres' emergency option the rest of the way.

  • Sabres' Dustin Tokarski: Up from AHL

    Tokarski was summoned from AHL Rochester on Thursday, per Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News.

    Tokarski has a 3.47 GAA and an .888 save percentage in 16 contests with Rochester this season. Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen, who was slated to start Thursday versus Florida, is dealing with a lower-body injury. Eric Comrie and Tokarski are likely to share the goaltending duties during Luukkonen's absence.

  • Sabres' Dustin Tokarski: Waived by Sabres

    Tokarski was placed on waivers Saturday.

    Tokarksi managed to see action in four NHL games last season with the Sabres, going 1-2-0 with a 3.44 GAA and .897 save percentage. Tokarski inked a two-way contract with Buffalo in the offseason, and if he passes through waivers, he will end up in AHL Rochester this season.

  • Sabres' Dustin Tokarski: Inks one-year deal

    Tokarski agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with Buffalo on Saturday, per Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet.

    Tokarski had a 1-2-0 record, 3.44 GAA and .897 save percentage in four contests with Pittsburgh in 2022-23 and will now join Buffalo for the second time in his career. At the AHL level, he posted a 2.69 GAA and .910 save percentage in 36 games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton last season. Tokarski will probably start the 2023-24 campaign in the minors.

  • Penguins' Dustin Tokarski: Sent back down

    Tokarski was reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Saturday.

    Tristan Jarry has overcome his lower-body injury and is able to back up Casey DeSmith, so Tokarski is no longer needed on the big club's roster.

  • Penguins' Dustin Tokarski: Up from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton

    Tokarski was called up from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Thursday on an emergency basis, according to Penguins radio play-by-play announcer Josh Getzoff.

    It's not yet known if Tokarski's promotion means that either Tristan Jarry, who started Wednesday, or Casey DeSmith are unavailable for Thursday's game against Dallas. Tokarski has a 1-2-0 record, 3.44 GAA and .897 save percentage in four contests this season. At the AHL level with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, the 33-year-old has posted a 2.47 GAA and a .917 save percentage in 29 appearances in 2022-23.

  • Penguins' Dustin Tokarski: Dropped to minors

    Tokarski was demoted to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Monday.

    Tokarski gave up seven goals on 58 shots in two appearances during his recent stint with Pittsburgh. He was sent down Monday after Tristan Jarry (upper body) was activated from injured reserve.

  • Penguins' Dustin Tokarski: Solid but beaten four times

    Tokarski stopped 38-of-42 shots in a 5-2 loss to the Devils on Saturday.

    Tokarski was mostly sharp through the game, but the Devils came in waves. Dawson Mercer and Jesper Bratt beat him at even strength, Dougie Hamilton put in a power-play marker and Nico Hischier knifed in a shortie. Tokarski has a .896 save percentage this season and just isn't a trustworthy fantasy option. Tick will remain with the Pens until either Tristan Jarry (lower body) returns or the Pens trade for a goalie.

  • Penguins' Dustin Tokarski: Tending twine Saturday

    Tokarski will patrol the home crease Saturday against New Jersey, Michelle Crechiolo of the Penguins' official site reports.

    Tokarski has surrendered eight goals on 75 shots in three appearances with Pittsburgh this season. He will make his second start of 2022-23 with the big club after Casey DeSmith played in Friday's 5-4 loss to the Islanders. The Devils sit seventh in the NHL this year with 3.43 goals per game.

  • Penguins' Dustin Tokarski: Yields three goals in relief outing

    Tokarski allowed three goals on 16 shots in Saturday's 6-0 loss to the Kings.

    Tokarski was beaten three times by Adrian Kempe after relieving Casey DeSmith early in the second period. Through three appearances this season, Tokarski has allowed eight goals on 75 shots. The Penguins would likely prefer to avoid needing to use him, and the 33-year-old will likely head back to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton once Tristan Jarry (upper body) is cleared to return.

  • Penguins' Dustin Tokarski: Recalled from AHL

    Tokarski was summoned from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on an emergency basis Saturday.

    Tokarski has posted a 1-1-0 record with a 2.67 GAA and a .915 save percentage in two appearances for Pittsburgh this season. He was up with the big club prior to the All-Star break due to the absence of Tristan Jarry (upper body). The Penguins host Colorado on Tuesday.

  • Penguins' Dustin Tokarski: Sent down

    Tokarski was assigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Sunday.

    Tokarski didn't see any action during his recent NHL stint. He posted a 1-1-0 record with a 2.67 GAA and a .915 save percentage in two appearances with the big club earlier this month. Pittsburgh is off until Feb. 7 for the All-Star break.

  • Penguins' Dustin Tokarski: Called up from minors

    Tokarski was recalled under emergency conditions from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Wednesday.

    Tokarski's promotion certainly doesn't bode well for the availability of Tristan Jarry (upper body), who was a surprise scratch versus the Panthers on Tuesday. During his previous stint in the NHL, due to a prior Jarry absence, the 33-year-old Tokarski played in just two of eight contests, posting a 1-1-0 record and a 2.68 GAA. Still, with Casey DeSmith not exactly impressing right now, perhaps Tokarski could see some more opportunities this time around depending on how long Jarry is out.

    Tokarski came on in relief of Casey DeSmith on Tuesday and turned aside 18 of 19 shots in a 5-4 victory over Vancouver.

    Tokarski made his first appearance of the season, replacing Casey DeSmith after Vancouver scored three goals early in the first period.

Tokarski was 10-12-5 with a .899 save percentage last season in Buffalo. He'll continue to back up DeSmith while Tristan Jarry (lower body) is sidelined.

    Tokarski was recalled from AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Tuesday.

    Tokarski figures to step into the backup role following the injury to Tristan Jarry (lower body) against the Bruins on Monday. The Penguins have a back-to-back on the schedule Jan. 13 and 14 against the Jets and Hurricanes, respectively, which could be Tokarski's next chance to play if Jarry is out that long.
