  • Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Rewards with timely shutout

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/18) DeSmith saved 35 shots during Friday's 4-0 win over Ottawa.

    This was the rookie's first start since March 21, and for fantasy owners who took the risk of starting him in this favorable spot against Ottawa, he more than delivered. DeSmith finishes his debut campaign with a 6-4-1 record, .921 save percentage and 2.40 GAA through 14 appearances. He projects to back up No. 1 Matt Murray during the playoffs, and DeSmith could also have the inside track of opening the 2018-19 season in the same role.

    Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Between pipes for finale

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/6/18) DeSmith will be the home goalie against the Senators in the final regular-season game Friday, Sam Werner of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    DeSmith rode the pine in Pittsburgh's last seven games, so it's been a little while since he's had the chance to start. The 26-year-old has a 2.63 GAA and .913 save percentage through 13 games. Ottawa has scored 2.71 goals per game, so DeSmith may be able to end the season with a nice outing and shake off any rust in case the Penguins need him in the playoffs.

    Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Turns aside 27 shots in Wednesday's win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/18) DeSmith stopped 27 shots in Wednesday's 5-3 win over the Canadiens.

    With Matt Murray now recovered from his concussion, DeSmith's opportunities for playing time down the stretch could be limited, but his .919 save percentage in 11 games since making his first NHL start in mid-January should give the Pens' some confidence in the rookie if they need him.

    Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Gets starting nod

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/18) DeSmith will start in the crease against the visiting Canadiens on Wednesday.

    The Penguins sent Tristan Jarry between the pipes against Montreal last Thursday and he emerged victorious from the start upon fending 17 of 20 shots, but he's since been reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. This has opened the door for DeSmith to face a Habs team that owns an egregious minus-50 goal differential with just two wins in its last 10 games. He'll be a sneaky daily fantasy play Wednesday evening.

    Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Makes 29 stops in Wednesday's OT loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/15/18) DeSmith stopped 29 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Rangers.

    He made some big saves, but this was still the most goals the rookie has allowed in any of his 12 games this season, leaving him with a respectable .914 save percentage. Tristan Jarry has been seeing the bulk of the work in net for the Pens lately, and this outing likely isn't going to tip things back DeSmith's way.
