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
Makes 23 saves in OT loss
GPittsburgh Penguins
October 16, 2018
DeSmith allowed three goals Tuesday, in a 3-2 overtime loss to Vancouver.
ANALYSIS
Tuesday's game was DeSmith's second consecutive OT loss, and the netminder has only made three starts so far this season. He's played quite well in each one, though his performance in this contest was probably his worst effort so far in 2018-19. With Matt Murray (concussion) on the verge of being fully healthy, DeSmith could return to backup duties as early as Thursday when the Penguins travel to Toronto to battle the high-powered Maple Leafs.
