Penguins' Dustin Tokarski: Pens one-year contract

Tokarski inked a one-year, $775,000 deal with the Penguins on Wednesday. Tokarski's deal is technically a one-way contract, which means he will join the team for training camp, but he should be expected to spend the year in the minors as the No. 3 option for the club after Casey DeSmith (abdomen) was re-signed in early July. Still, if DeSmith isn't fully fit for the start or the year after undergoing core muscle surgery, Tokarski could get the chance to serve as the backup behind Tristan Jarry for Opening Night.

Buffalo Sabres 2021-22 Player Report Card: Dustin Tokarski

The Buffalo Sabres were hoping that the 2021-22 season would be an improvement over the previous season in terms of goaltending. After the COVID-shortened 2021 campaign saw an outbreak of injuries that forced the team to use six separate netminders, Craig Anderson and the returning Dustin Tokarski were tasked with stabilizing the Sabres’ situation in net despite a bleak prognosis for the season.

Sabres' Dustin Tokarski: Beats Blackhawks in finale

Tokarski made 19 saves in Friday's 3-2 overtime win over the Blackhawks. It wasn't a busy night for Tokarski, but the Sabres never led until Casey Mittelstadt potted the overtime winner. Tokarski finishes the season on a high note heading into unrestricted free agency, and he proved to be a somewhat serviceable backup with a 10-12-5 record, 3.27 GAA and .899 save percentage.

Sabres' Dustin Tokarski: In goal against Chicago

Tokarski will patrol the crease during Friday's home game versus the Blackhawks, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports. Tokarski was pretty shaky in his last start Thursday against the Bruins, surrendering five goals on 32 shots en route to a 5-0 loss. He'll try to bounce back and end the season with a bang by securing his 10th win of the year in a home matchup with a Chicago team that's only averaging 2.58 goals per game on the road this campaign, 27th in the NHL.

Sabres' Dustin Tokarski: Surrenders five to Bruins

Tokarski gave up five goals on 32 shots in Thursday's 5-0 loss to Boston. The Sabres finished with five more shots, but the Bruins scored five more goals. Three of the goals against Tokarski were scored by Patrice Bergeron. Tokarski fell to 9-12-5 with a 3.32 GAA and .899 save percentage. He will likely finish the season with those statistics since Buffalo has just one game remaining.

Sabres' Dustin Tokarski: Slated to start Thursday

Tokarski is poised to get the starting nod on the road versus the Bruins on Thursday, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports. Tokarski will look to end the year on a winning streak after having secured victories in his previous two contests in which he posted a combined .895 save percentage. The Bruins are unlikely to rest any guys just yet as the team still has an outside chance of improving its place in the standings, which means Tokarski should face plenty of rubber.

Sabres' Dustin Tokarski: Carried to win against Isles

Tokarski stopped 19 shots in Saturday's 5-3 win over the Islanders. The journeyman netminder wasn't exactly sharp, but the Buffalo offense gave Tokarski more than enough support to collect his ninth win of the season. His 3.25 GAA and .901 save percentage aren't good, but with Craig Anderson now dealing with an undisclosed injury, Tokarski could find himself in the No. 1 role for the Sabres over the final couple games.

Sabres' Dustin Tokarski: Tops Flyers on Sunday

Tokarski made 32 saves in Sunday's 5-3 win over Philadelphia. Tokarski helped the Sabres sweep the weekend home-and-home set after Craig Anderson played in Saturday's 4-3 win. Like Anderson, Tokarski fell behind early, allowing Kevin Hayes to score just 1:16 in. Buffalo responded with two goals of its own in the first period and never trailed for the remainder of the game as Tokarski picked up his eighth win of the season.

Sabres' Dustin Tokarski: Guarding cage Sunday

Tokarski will get the starting nod in Philadelphia on Sunday, Lance Lysowski of The Buffalo News reports. Tokarski will make his first appearance since April 8, when he coughed up four goals on 43 shots against the Panthers.

Sabres' Dustin Tokarski: Fades late against Florida

Tokarski made 39 saves in Friday's 4-3 loss to the Panthers. The Sabres took a 3-1 lead into the first intermission but Tokarski couldn't make it stick, eventually getting beaten for the game-winner with less than a minute left in the third period after a total defensive breakdown by Buffalo. The netminder is 1-2-1 over his last four starts with a 4.18 GAA and .882 save percentage, and he should continue to take a back seat to Craig Anderson in the crease.

Sabres' Dustin Tokarski: Starting Friday

Tokarski will guard the road goal Friday versus the Panthers, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports. Tokarski recently gave up five goals on 40 shots against the Panthers last Sunday. The 32-year-old will get another look against them, but this time in Florida, where the Panthers sport a 29-6-0 record this season. This is likely to be a tough matchup for Tokarski, so he's a risky fantasy option.
