Tokarski was cut from Pittsburgh's training camp roster Sunday.
Tokarski's slated to begin the year with AHL Wilkes-Barre behind Tristan Jarry and Casey DeSmith on the organizational depth chart.

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....

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.

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: 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.... See More ...

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: 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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less

Sabres' Dustin Tokarski: Facing Florida
Tokarski will guard the home cage during Sunday's matchup with the Panthers, Mike Harrington of The Buffalo News reports.
Tokarski was awful in his last start Monday against the Blackhawks, surrendering five goals on 21 shots, but he was still able to come away with a win thanks to fantastic goal support from his teammates. He'll need to be better in order to pick up a second straight victory Sunday, as the Panthers are averaging an impressive 3.53 goals per game on the road this year, second in the NHL.... See More ...

Sabres' Dustin Tokarski: Ugly outing in win
Tokarski allowed five goals on 21 shots in Monday's 6-5 win over the Blackhawks.
The Sabres erased a four-goal deficit and took their only lead with just 12 seconds left in the game. This was a course correction for Tokarski, who had been strong but unlucky to go 1-1-1 in his last three games -- he wasn't good Monday, but the Blackhawks' defense was worse. The 32-year-old improved to 7-9-5 with a 3.16 GAA and a .902 save percentage in 23 appearances. The Sabres begin a homestand Wednesday versus the Jets.... See More ... See Less

Sabres' Dustin Tokarski: Falls in shootout to Caps
Tokarski turned aside 37 shots in regulation and overtime and one of three shootout attempts during Friday's 4-3 loss to the Capitals.
The 32-year-old goalie was one of the main reasons the Sabres even got a point out of the contest, but in the end he had no answer for Alex Ovechkin, who scored the goal that tied the score at 3-3 and then beat Tokarski on the backhand to end the shootout. Tokarski remains behind Craig Anderson on the depth chart in Buffalo, and aside from a shutout of Calgary on March 18, the Sabres' No. 2 goalie has given up at least three goals in all of his starts since late January....

Tokarski is coming off a 24-save shutout of Calgary on March 18 but had gone 1-4-1 with a 3.21 GAA in his six appearances prior.

Sabres' Dustin Tokarski: Shuts out Flames
Tokarski stopped 24 shots in a 1-0 overtime win over the Flames on Friday.
Tokarski put in a good performance, and he was rewarded when Flames goalie Jacob Markstrom misplayed the puck in overtime. The shutout was Tokarski's first of the season and the second of his career -- his only other doughnut came in the 2013-14 campaign with the Canadiens. The 32-year-old improved to 6-9-4 with a 3.09 GAA and a .906 save percentage through a career-high 21 outings this season.
