Jarry made his NHL debut Sunday, stopping 22 of 25 shot in a loss to the Rangers. Jarry made an amazing stick save during the first period that is sure to be a save-of-the-year candidate. The 21-year-old has a bright future ahead of him, but for now, he'll yield to Matt Murray and Marc-Andre Fleury during the Penguins' postseason run. He's impressed with a .925 save percentage in 45 AHL appearances, so monitor Pittsburgh's goaltending situation, as he could have fantasy relevance as early as next season.
Jarry will be between the posts for Sunday's regular-season finale against the Rangers. Jarry makes his first career start on the final day of the Penguins' regular season when the team has nothing to play for in terms of playoff positioning. The 21-year-old posted a .925 save percentage and 2.15 GAA in 45 appearances for Pittsburgh's AHL affiliate this season.
Jarry was summoned from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL on Saturday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The Penguins gave Matt Murray a rest with Marc-Andre Fleury drawing the start in Toronto. Perhaps Murray will be sidelined against the Rangers, too, as the team doesn't want to take any chances with its starter heading into the playoffs.
Jarry could serve as Matt Murray's backup if Marc-Andre Fleury is traded by the deadline and the team opts not to acquire another goalie. Chances are that Pittsburgh would want a veteran netminder backing up Murray, but Jarry has played well for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, recording a 23-11-1 mark with a 2.28 GAA and .920 save percentage. We should know by Wednesday afternoon's deadline whether Jarry will hold any short-term value.
Jarry was assigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton on Wednesday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The Penguins brought Jarry back from the AHL over the weekend to back up starting goalie Marc-Andre Fleury in Saturday's win over the Lightning. Jarry didn't end up seeing the ice in that contest, and it doesn't look like he'll be in line for any opportunities in the near future with Matt Murray (lower body) likely to be available in a backup capacity behind Fleury in Wednesday's match with the Capitals.
