Pittsburgh Penguins News

The Penguins have signed Casey DeSmith to a three-year extension worth $3.75M ($1.25M AAV).

The undrafted 27-year-old netminder has gone 12-7-4 with a 2.47 GAA and .924 SV% in 26 games with the Penguins this season. DeSmith has played very well while Matt Murray was sidelined and proved that he is a more than capable No.2 netminder who can serve as a No.1 when called upon.

Rust (lower-body) will be a game-time decision on Wednesday.

Rust missed Monday’s game in Minnesota with a lower-body injury but could return to the lineup on Wednesday. Rust was back on the Penguins top line with Sidney Crosby and Jake Guentzel in the morning skate and will look to continue the torrid pace he was on before getting hurt—scoring eight goals with three assists (11 points) in his last nine games.

Murray allowed one goal on 31 shots in the Penguins win in St. Louis last Saturday. Murray has been sensational since returning to the Penguins crease, going 5-0-0 with a 1.38 GAA, .959 SV% and one shutout.
