Ron Hextall Makes Goalie Trade Announces Stolarz Injury.

While the Philadelphia Flyers enjoyed a successful west coast road trip heading to Nashville with a 2-1 record and plenty of bonding, the Flyers AHL team, took a big blow.

Flyers general manager Ron Hextall announced that Anthony Stolarz will be out long term.

Needing to add some depth in the goaltending department, Hextall was forced to make a move, as he acquired goalie Dustin Tokarski from the Anaheim Ducks for future considerations.

"We feel like Dustin has experience in the regular season and the playoffs so we felt like it's an upgrade," added Hextall. "Number one, he's competitive. He works hard. He's a little bit of an undersized goalie, but he's quick, agile and we think he's going to be a good fit."

Tokarski's biggest moment in the NHL so far has been stepping in for Montreal Canadiens goalie when he was injured during the Eastern Conference finals a couple years back as the team decided to go with Tokarski over veteran Petr Budaj.

He'll join goalie Alex Lyon to probably share duties with the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.
