Just a couple of hours before Game 1 of their playoff series against the Pittsburgh Penguins, the Philadelphia Flyers announced a roster move.
The Flyers and general manager Ron Hextall announced that they've recalled goalie Dustin Tokarski from Lehigh Valley.
Tokarski will be with the team for Game 1 on Wednesday night and wear #35.
The 28 year old has a 19-8-12 record this year in the AHL along with a 2.67 goals against average and .914 save percentage.
He was acquired by the Flyers at the start of the season from the Anaheim Ducks and brings with him some playoff experience. Tokarski stepped in for Montreal Canadiens goaltender Carey Price after Price was injured during the 2014 Eastern Conference Finals. He started five games after Price was injured early in the series and went 2-3 with a 2.60 goals against average and .916 save percentage against the New York Rangers.
