The Montreal Canadiens announced they have swapped goalies with the Tampa Bay Lightning.  The Canadiens will send the Lightning Cedric Desjardins in exchange for Dustin Tokarski. From 2011-2012, Tokarski played in five games with the Lightning and posted a 1-3-1 record with a 3.45 goals against average. He was drafted 122nd overall by the Bolts in 2008. Desjardins was a member of the Lightning organization from 2010 – 2011. In two NHL games with the Lightning, he posted a 2-0-0 record with a 1.00 goals against average and a .968% save percentage. In 2012-13 with the Canadiens’ affiliate in Hamilton, Desjardins had a record of 7 wins, 13 losses and 2 overtime losses with a 2.94 goals against average. Tokarski has the potential to become a serviceable goalie in the NHL. General manager Steve Yzerman may have seen it differently. The post Canadiens announce they have swapped goaltenders with the Lightning appeared first on The Bay Cave.
