  • Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Sent down to minors

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/8/18) DeSmith has been reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

    DeSmith was flipped for Tristan Jarry in a swap that fantasy owners should probably expect to happen frequently throughout the remainder of the season. With Matt Murray getting the bulk of the ice time in Pittsburgh, DeSmith and Jarry will essentially split the starting job with the Baby Pens as they move between leagues.

    Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Ice tilted in his direction in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/4/18) DeSmith made 35 saves in a 3-1 loss to the Devils on Saturday night.

    The ice was tilted toward DeSmith -- he saw 38 shots, while Keith Kinkaid saw just 16. He now has a 3-3 record with a 2.24 GAA and .925 save percentage. DeSmith's value is going to be highest in leagues where you can take advantage of match-up situations. Otherwise, he just won't get much action.

    Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Will see New Jersey on Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/3/18) DeSmith will guard the cage in Saturday's road game against the Devils, Josh Getzoff of PensTV reports.

    DeSmith will be chasing his third consecutive win in an important divisional clash. The Penguins are just one point ahead of the Devils in the Metropolitan Division standings, with this assignment proving that coach Mike Sullivan has plenty of faith in the rookie netminder. New Jersey only ranks 20th in the league in home scoring (2.88 goals per game), which sets DeSmith up nicely to extend his winning streak. You could do much worse than roll the dice on the American tender in DFS settings on Saturday.

    Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Wins despite lackluster effort

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/25/18) DeSmith allowed three goals on 26 shots but came away the winner in a 6-3 decision over visiting Minnesota on Thursday.

    This was DeSmith's third win in as many starts, though the fact he allowed three straight Wild goals in the span of 3:02 in the third period is a cause for a concern. Now that regular starter Matt Murray (personal) is back with the team, DeSmith will likely either be relegated to backup duty or reassigned to AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton in favor of fellow netminder Tristan Jarry, though owners won't likely know that answer until Pittsburgh's next game Jan. 30.

    Penguins' Casey DeSmith: Gets starting nod against Wild

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/25/18) DeSmith will make his fourth straight start in Thursday's clash with Minnesota, Sam Kasan of Pens Inside Scoop reports.

    DeSmith is 2-1-0 with a 1.35 GAA in his previous three outings, which has afforded starter Matt Murray some additional time off. Additionally, the 26-year-old DeSmith appears to have secured the backup role from Tristan Jarry, who was sent down to the minors Wednesday. It could be a lighter workload for DeSmith on Thursday, considering the Wild are putting a mere 29.9 shots on goal per game (fifth fewest in the league).
