Penguins Recall Tokarski from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton



The Pittsburgh Penguins have recalled goaltender Dustin Tokarski from their farm team in Wilkes-Barre on an emergency basis.

He and forward Jonathan Gruden had been assigned to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton early in the Penguins’ bye week, which overlapped with the NHL’s all-star break.

The Penguins are scheduled to practice Sunday at 4 p.m. at UPMC Lemieux Sports Complex, their first team activity since a 6-4 loss to San Jose last Saturday.

It is not known whether No. 1 goalie Tristan Jarry, who has missed the past three games because of an unspecified injury, will participate in that workout, although having Tokarski and Casey DeSmith on the roster suggests that he is unlikely to.

Tokarski, 33, is 1-1 with the Penguins this season, posting a 2.67 goals-against average and .915 save percentage. He is 9-7-4 in Wilkes-Barre in 2022-23.

The Pittsburgh Penguins’ first game after the all-star break will be Tuesday against Colorado at 7:08 p.m. at PPG Paints Arena.
