The Pittsburgh Penguins will recall goaltender Tristan Jarry on an emergency basis from the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League later this evening, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.
Goaltender Matt Murray has been placed on injured reserve.
Jarry, 23, has played 11 games for WBS this year, posting a 4-5-2 record, 2.89 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage. He has been strong in his past two games, stopping 56 of 59 shots for a .949 save percentage. On November 14 at Springfield, he became the first goalie in franchise history to score a goal when he shot the puck the length of the ice into the empty net.
Last year, Jarry played in 26 NHL games for Pittsburgh, going 14-6-2. His 14 victories led all NHL rookies.
The Penguins visit the Boston Bruins tomorrow, November 23 at 7:30 PM at TD Garden. One night later, Pittsburgh returns home to host the Columbus Blue Jackets at 7:00 PM at PPG Paints Arena on Saturday night. Both games will be broadcast on AT&T SportsNet and 105.9 The X.
