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

Needed in relief

March 16, 2019
DeSmith stopped 12 of 13 shots after replacing Matt Murray early in the second period of Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Blues.
The only goal the 27-year-old gave up came on the power play. DeSmith is dialed in right now -- he was coming off a shutout of the Sabres on Thursday -- and while Murray's recent play has been mostly sharp as well, the Penguins should be confident they can give their backup a little more work down the stretch if they want to try and get Murray some extra rest before the playoffs.
