Finally some good news for Pittsburgh Penguins fans… goaltender Tristan Jarry is just fine, thank you very much. The rookie netminder appeared to suffer a wrist injury when he stretched out to make a save on Philadelphia Flyers forward Michael Raffl on Tuesday evening, but it appears as though he’ll be good enough to back up starter Matt Murray tonight against the Carolina Hurricanes.
Jarry took to the ice at PPG Paints Arena this morning with his teammates in preparation for tonight’s game and no announcement has been made from the team in regards to a recall. It was expected that AHL goalie Casey DeSmith may be called up to back up Murray if Jarry were injured, but that doesn’t seem to be necessary.
In 13 games with the Penguins this season, the 22-year-old Jarry has compiled a 6-3-2 record along with a 2.36 GAA and .922 save percentage. He’s been a consistent performer on a team that’s struggling for consistency this season and has proven himself to be a big part of the team’s future.
