With a lot happening on the goalie market in recent weeks, it looks like another option in between the pipes has landed on the block. The Pittsburgh Penguins are reportedly entertaining the possibility of trading goaltender Tristan Jarry, just a year after signing him to a five-year contract worth nearly $27 million.

According to Rob Rossi of the Athletic, the Penguins have informed rivals teams that Jarry is available though Pittsburgh hasn’t dismissed the notion of starting 2024-25 with Jarry and Alex Nedeljkovic as its tandem in the crease.
Jarry has spent his entire eight-year career with the Penguins and holds a 2-team no-trade list every season, and a new version of that list will can be done on Monday when the NHL calendar flips to the new campaign:

“The situation is fluid, the team sources said.

"Jarry, 29, is set to enter the second season of a five-year contract. He counts $5.375 million against the salary cap. His contract includes a 12-team no-trade list, and Jarry’s representatives can provide Dubas with a new list at the start of the new league year, which is this Monday.”

This was a tough season for Jarry, who posted a 19-25-5 record with a .903 save percentage in 51 games. As the season unfolded, Nedeljkovic took his job as Jarry did not start in any of the Penguins’ final 13 contests before they missed the postseason for the second straight year.

Last week, the Penguins re-signed Nedeljkovic to a two-year deal with an average annual value of $2.5 million. He was set to become an unrestricted free agent on Monday.

Jarry was selected 44th overall in 2013 by Pittsburgh, but now could be sent elsewhere to pursue his NHL career. The Toronto Maple Leafs have been looking for an upgrade in net, while other teams like the Boston Bruins and Calgary Flames are looking to solidify their goaltending duo ahead of the next season.

Let’s keep an eye on this one.
