Desjardins Dealt for Depth, Receive Tokarski

For the second time in less than three years, the Montreal Canadiens have dealt Cedrick Desjardins to the Tampa Bay Lightning. Desjardins, 27, has struggled mightily for the Canadiens’ AHL affiliate Hamilton Bulldogs with a record of 7-13-2, GAA of 2.94 and a .905 save percentage.  In return Montreal receives Dustin Tokarski, 23, who has been playing exceptionally well all season for the Norfolk Admirals with a record of 18-8-4, 2.46 GAA and a .900 save percentage.

What this trade does is add depth at the goaltending position that has been less than lackluster in the Canadiens farm system. With Tokarski, the Bulldogs will possess a much younger goaltender with more upside than Desjardins. Also not eligible for arbitration, Tokarski will be an RFA this summer. Hopefully for Hamilton Tokarski can add some stability to the goaltending position in down in the minors as they currently sit in last place in the Western Conference with a record of 17-24-1-5.

Per Damian Cristodero, GM Yzerman said the trade for Desjardins was in case of injury to Lindback or Garon, “we weren’t comfortable with our options right now. Our goaltending in Syracuse hasn’t been up to par. We want to give our team the best opportunity to make the playoffs.”
