Lightning recall goaltender Dustin Tokarski from Norfolk
The Tampa Bay Lightning have recalled goaltender Dustin Tokarski (toh-KAHR-skee) from the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League today, Vice President and General Manager Steve Yzerman announced.

Tokarski, 6-foot, 197 pounds, has played in 40 games with the Admirals this season, posting a 27-11-0 record with a 2.34 goals-against average and a .907 save percentage. He also has four shutouts. Tokarski has won eight consecutive games for the Admirals (a franchise AHL record) with two shutouts in that time and has gone 13-2-0 in his previous 15 decisions. Tokarski also leads the AHL in wins.

A native of Humboldt, Saskatchewan, Tokarski has played in two NHL games with Tampa Bay, both in relief during the 2009-10 season. He made his NHL debut on January 16, 2010 at the Florida Panthers.

Tokarski helped Canada to the Gold Medal at the 2009 World Junior Championships, posting a 4-0 record with a 2.65 GAA and a .906 save percentage. He turned aside 39 of 40 shots in the Gold Medal Game against Sweden as Canada won, 5-1. Tokarski also backstopped the Spokane Chiefs of the WHL to the Memorial Cup in 2008.

The 22-year-old was selected by the Lightning in the fifth round, 122nd overall, of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
