The search for the backup goalie may be over. The Rangers have inked Dustin Tokarski to a one-year deal. Tokarski is famous in New York, as he’s the guy Martin St. Louis beat with his overtime winner in 2014.
Tokarski has spent a bunch of time in the AHL over the past few seasons (only 7 NHL starts since 2015-2016), so it’s still entirely possible that Alex Georgiev wins the backup role. That said, Tokarski is both insurance for the backup position, and also could be AHL depth.
