Tokarski, 27, has played in one game for the Ducks this year, coming on in relief of John Gibson in a game against Columbus in late October.
He’s primarily suited up for Anaheim’s AHL affiliate in San Diego, where he’s gone 9-6-1 with a 3.29 GAA and .889 save percentage.
Best remembered for coming on in relief of an injured Carey Price for Montreal during the 2014 Eastern Conference Final, Tokarski gives the Ducks some flexibility heading into next season.
Current backup Jonathan Bernier is in the final year of a deal with a $4.15 million cap hit — fairly rich for a No. 2 — and Tokarski would give the Ducks a goalie to expose in June’s expansion draft.
