Penguins sign goalie Casey DeSmith to a 2-year extension

PITTSBURGH (AP) — The Pittsburgh Penguins are sticking with Casey DeSmith, signing the team’s No. 2 goaltender to a two-year contract extension that carries an average annual value of $1.8 million. The signing gives the Penguins a dependable option behind All-Star Tristan Jarry. The 30-year-old DeSmith played in 26 games for Pittsburgh in 2021-22, going 11-6-5 with a 2.79 goals-against average and .914 save percentage. His three shutouts tied a career high he set in 2018-19. DeSmith set a franchise record for saves in a shutout on April 21 when he stopped 52 shots by the Boston Bruins.
