Penguins Re-Sign Jarry; Five Years, $5.375 Million Cap Hit



Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Tristan Jarry, NHL trade talk

CRANBERRY — The Pittsburgh Penguins have found their go-to goaltender for the next few years.

And they didn’t have to look far to get him.

They signed Tristan Jarry to a five-year contract with a salary-cap hit of $5.375 million Saturday, a few hours after Jarry hit the open market as an unrestricted free agent.

Jarry, 28, went 24-13-7 in 47 appearances last season, with a 2.90 goals-against average and .909 save percentage. He missed much of the second half of the season because of injuries.

They also reached a contract agreement with former Detroit goaltender Alex Nedeljkovic. That deal is for one year and $1.5 million.

He went 5-7-2 in 15 appearances with Detroit in 2022-23 and could compete with Casey DeSmith for the No. 2 job, but seems more likely to be the top goaltender for the Penguins’ American Hockey League team in Wilkes-Barre.
