The Montreal Canadiens on Thursday acquired right wing Max Friberg from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for goaltender Dustin Tokarski.

Friberg will join the AHL’s St. John’s IceCaps; Tokarski has been assigned to the AHL’s San Diego Gulls.

Friberg was Anaheim’s fifth-round selection in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

Tokarski, 26, has a record of 3-3-4 with a 2.84 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage in 10 appearances with St. John’s this season. He was also 1-3-0 in six games with Montreal.

For his career, Tokarski has played 247 regular-season games in the AHL, with a record of 128-92-18, a 2.46 GAA, a .912 save percentage and 18 shutouts. He won a Calder Cup championship with Norfolk in 2012.

Tokarski, who has appeared in 33 career NHL games (plus five more in the Stanley Cup Playoffs with Montreal in 2014), was chosen by Tampa Bay in the fifth round of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.
