Pittsburgh Penguins

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.
