Ducks recall Dustin Tokarski after Bernier injury

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) The Anaheim Ducks recalled goalie Dustin Tokarski from their AHL affiliate in San Diego on Wednesday.

The Ducks made the move after backup goalie Jonathan Bernier was injured in a loss at San Jose on Tuesday.

Bernier has an upper-body muscle injury, the team says. Regular starter John Gibson replaced him for the final two periods and overtime in the 2-1 loss.

Bernier has played four periods in his first season with Anaheim, going 0-1-0 with a 3.04 GAA.

The Ducks acquired Tokarski in a trade with Montreal in January, but he has yet to play for Anaheim, spending his time in San Diego. The former Tampa Bay draft pick played in 26 regular-season games and five playoff games for the Canadiens over three seasons.

Anaheim hosts Nashville on Wednesday.
