The Pittsburgh Penguins have recalled goaltender Tristan Jarry on an emergency basis from the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League, it was announced today by executive vice president and general manager Jim Rutherford.
Following Wednesday's practice, head coach Mike Sullivan announced that goaltender Matt Murray is day-to-day with an upper-body injury. Murray did not participate in Wednesday's practice.
Jarry, 23, has played in 27 AHL games this season with WBS, compiling a 15-9-3 record, 2.75 goals-against average and a .912 save percentage. He is 8-3 in his last 11 starts prior to his recall. 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. This year, Jarry is 0-1-1 in two NHL starts earlier in the season.
The Penguins begin a three-game road trip tomorrow night by visiting the Florida Panthers at 7:00 PM at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Fla. Fans can watch the game on AT&T SportsNet or listen to the action on 105.9 The X. Pittsburgh wraps up its road trip with stops in Tampa Bay (Feb. 9) and Philadelphia (Feb. 11) before its next home game against the Edmonton Oilers on Wednesday, February 13 at 8:00 PM at PPG Paints Arena.
