Tokarski On the Wire
Another goalie is heading down to the minors, if he isn't claimed on waivers, as Dustin Tokarski has hit the wire on Monday morning (or Noon ET), as Mike Condon has earned the opening night back-up spot behind Carey Price after training camp. Tokarski was last season's back-up, but wasn't able to keep his spot after a fantastic camp from Condon. If Tokarski is to clear waivers, he will report to St. John's in the AHL for the time being.
Clayton will go into the season with only one goalie to keep him alive in the goalie survivor pool to start the year and may have to go those first nine weeks of the season with that one goalie. Clayton took Tokarski with his final pick in the 14th round, so there wasn't a great deal of hope pinned on the back-up keeper, but anything is definitely better than the minors.
