2019 Fantasy Outlook
After battling Casey DeSmith for the backup job heading into the 2018-19 campaign, Jarry found himself starting the year in AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. DeSmith's performance as Matt Murray's backup convinced the Penguins to sign him to a three-year contract extension in January, which all but closed the door on Jarry's long-term future with the club. The 24-year-old figures to be the No. 1 option for the Baby Pens this season, and he'll likely only see NHL time if Matt Murray or DeSmith go down with an injury. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a two-year contract with the Penguins in July 2018. The contract is a two-way deal in 2018-19 and a one-way deal in 2019-20.
First win in month

November 16, 2019
Jarry made 32 saves in a 6-1 win over Toronto on Saturday.
It was Jarry's first win since Oct. 13. Still, the young goalie is a strong play and that could earn him a trade out of town. The Penguins have him and Casey DeSmith as their two and three, and both are solid. Even a team like Toronto could come calling given their struggles at backup.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
The lone certainty for Jarry heading into the 2018-19 campaign is that he is under contract with the Penguins for another two years. The backup situation behind Matt Murray likely won't be “decided” until closer to the end of training camp, and even then, it should be considered fluid at best as both the 23-year-old and Casey DeSmith are on two-way deals and can be flipped between Pittsburgh and AHL Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. Selected with the 44th overall pick of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft, the No. 2 job is likely Jarry's to lose. Given Murray's chronic battle with the injury bug, savvy fantasy owners will be monitoring this situation closely throughout the upcoming season.
A second-round pick in 2013, Jarry exceeded expectations with a marvelous WHL season for the Edmonton Oil Kings in 2013-14. He compiled a 44-14-3 mark with a 2.24 GAA and .914 save percentage, while recording eight shutouts. As a 19-year-old, Jarry remains too young to play in the AHL, so unless he surprises everybody by breaking camp with the Penguins, Jarry will return to the Oil Kings for another season. As such, Jarry has little-to-no value in single-season leagues, but may be worth stashing in keeper leagues. New GM Jim Rutherford has a history of going with young netminders, as evidenced by his aggressive promotion of Cam Ward in 2005-06, giving Jarry hope for a rapid ascension when he turns pro.
Pittsburgh selected Jarry with its top pick in the 2013 draft, taking the goaltender 44th overall. As such, he becomes an immediate target in keeper fantasy leagues. Starter Marc-Andre Fleury has but two years left on his deal and Tomas Vokoun is 37. The Pens signed top collegiate netminder, Eric Hartzell, and the organization has Jeff Zatkoff at the AHL level, but Jarry figures to get his chance in a couple years. For his part, Jarry went 18-7 with a 1.61 GAA and .936 save percentage in the WHIL with the Edmonton Oil Kings. He's the perfect goalie to put in your back pocket and pull him out in a couple years to see where he stands.
