Observations:

 

March 2015 – Tokarski has seen limted action in his first full NHL campaign behind MVP candidate Carey Price. Tokarski has seen mixed results, starting the year hot and then seeing his save percentage trend down while only winning once in six tries since January 1st. In his current role it is quite a reach to consider Tokarski in fantasy leagues. Eric Daoust

 

October 2014 – Petr Budaj has been traded to the Jets which makes Tokarski the Habs’ backup for the 2014-15 campaign. Eric Daoust

June 2014 – Tokarski held his own against the New York Rangers in he Eastern Conference final, sporting a 2-3 record with a .916 save percentage. He has certainly made a case to be in the NHL next year. Eric Daoust

 

May 2014 – Tokarski won his first NHL playoff game, a 3-2 overtime decision over the New York Rangers in game three of the Eastern Conference Final. The fact that he was chosen to replace the injured Carey Price over current backup Petr Budaj bodes well for his future and increases the odds that he will land a spot in the NHL next season. Eric Daoust

 

March 2014 – Tokarski has enjoyed a very successful campaign, headlined by a brief stint with the Canadiens. With starter Carey Price out due to injury Tokarski earned a victory against the NHL-leading Ducks and later his first career shutout against Buffalo. While he may never get a chance to be a number-one goalie he has certainly pushed his NHL stock forward with his recent play. Eric Daoust

 

August 2013 – Tokarski signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Canadiens. Eric Daoust

 

May 2013 – Tokarski continued his strong play in Hamilton
