MONTREAL, QUEBEC – Montreal Canadiens and Hamilton Bulldogs General Manager Marc Bergevin announced today the Canadiens have signed goaltender Dustin Tokarski to a two-year contract extension for the 2014-2015 and 2015-2016 seasons. The first year of the contract is a two-way, American Hockey League / National Hockey League deal and the second year is a one-way NHL agreement.

In 234 career AHL regular season games with the Bulldogs, Syracuse Crunch and Norfolk Admirals, Tokarski has a record of 124-87-14 with a 2.44 goals-against average, .912 save percentage and 18 shutouts. In 40 games with Hamilton this season, the Humboldt, Saskatchewan native has a record of 20-15-3 with a 2.36 goals-against average, .920 save percentage and one shutout. The 5’11”, 198-pound goaltender is ninth in the AHL in goals-against average and tied for fifth in save percentage so far in 2013-2014.
