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 stopped 29 of 33 shots in Thursday's 4-0 loss to the Sharks.
ANALYSIS
All four goals against DeSmith came on special teams -- three with the Sharks on the power play and one with San Jose shorthanded. San Jose put this one away early with a trio of first-period goals, and Pittsburgh's offense never showed up to bail DeSmith out.
