2018 Fantasy Outlook
Heading into training camp, DeSmith figures to be slightly behind Tristan Jarry in the battle for the No. 2 job in Pittsburgh -- if only because the organization used a high pick (44th overall) on Jarry. The competition to serve as Matt Murray's backup should be considered wide open and a decision for the Opening Night roster spot likely won't be made until well into September. Even if DeSmith were to find himself in the minors to start the season, both players are on two-way deals and a flip could be made at any point during the year. Considering how often Murray deals with injuries, the 26-year-old could see some time between the pipes in the NHL this year -- how much won't become clear for awhile. Read Past Outlooks

DeSmith will get the starting nod on the road versus Chicago on Wednesday, Sam Kasan of Pens Inside Scoop reports.
ANALYSIS
While Matt Murray (lower body) has been taken off injured reserve, DeSmith will continue to defend the cage while Murray serves as the backup. The 27-year-old Smith has registered a 9-4-4 record in 20 appearances this season, along with a pair of shutouts and a 2.34 GAA. The backup netminder was taking starts away from Murray prior to the Thunder Bay native getting hurt and may have played his way into a goalie split moving forward.
