Pittsburgh Penguins

DeSmith will start against the Canadiens on Wednesday.

It’s the first start for DeSmith since March 14th when he allowed four goals on 33 shots in an overtime loss to the Rangers. Tristian Jarry was sent down to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AHL) on Monday, so DeSmith should continue to handle backup duties from here on out. He draws a strong matchup tonight against the Canadiens.

DeSmith is in the starter's crease at the Penguins morning skate.

DeSmith was pulled after allowing three goals on five shots in the Penguins blowout 8-4 loss in Boston on Thursday. Tristan Jarry started on Saturday, but it looks like DeSmith will be back in for the third time in four games. DeSmith has gone 2-2-0 with a 2.22 GAA and .926 SV% on home-ice this season.

DeSmith has spent most of the year in the AHL, but during his seven games in the NHL he has posted a 2.24 GAA and .926 SV%.

The Penguins sent Casey DeSmith to Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AHL).

DeSmith had an impressive run with the Penguins, winning three of his last five starts with a 2.03 GAA and .939 SV%. However, with Matt Murray back the Penguins likely want DeSmith to get some playing time so they’ve swapped him with Tristan Jarry, who has been getting playing time in the AHL for the last few weeks.

DeSmith will make his fourth straight start on Thursday.

DeSmith stopped 34 of 35 shots in the Penguins win over the Hurricanes on Tuesday. DeSmith has gone 2-1-0 with a 1.35 GAA and .960 SV% in his previous three games so he earned a fourth straight start tonight. As good as he has been, he will be in tough vs. a Wild team that has won four of their last five.

The Penguins have recalled Casey DeSmith from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (AHL).

DeSmith, 26, has gone 9-2-1 with a 2.29 GAA and .924 SV% in 12 games with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton this season. With Matt Murray leaving Monday’s game following a collision with Jakub Voracek, DeSmith’s call-up suggests that Murray will miss some time and roll with DeSmith and Tristan Jarry as their goaltending duo. In his only NHL appearance, DeSmith allowed three goals on 15 shots during a relief appearance in a 7-1 loss in Winnipeg.
