NHL: Montreal Canadiens at Pittsburgh Penguins

The Pittsburgh Penguins re-signed goaltender Tristan Jarry on Saturday to a three-year, $10.5 million contract.

Jarry, who became an NHL All-Star for the first time in the 2019-20 season, started 31 of his 33 games and had a 2.43 goals-against average, a career best. The 25-year old also had career bests in save percentage (.921) and shutouts (three).

The second-round draft pick in 2013 was scheduled to become a restricted free agent this month. He was 20-12-1 in the 2019-20 season and is 57-34-20 in his four-year career in Pittsburgh.

Jarry’s signing could spell an end to Matt Murray’s time with the Penguins. Murray helped Pittsburgh win Stanley Cup titles in 2016 and 2017, with speculation now centered on his possible trade.

Murray, 26, will become an unrestricted free agent this month. He started 38 games this past season going 20-11-5. He has the third most wins in Penguins history at 117.
