Penguins select goaltender in second round

Posted: Updated:

PITTSBURGH (AP) - The Pittsburgh Penguins selected goaltender Tristan Jarry in the second round of the NHL Draft on Sunday.

Taken 44th overall, Jarry was Pittsburgh's first pick of the day. He was 18-7, with a 1.61 goals-against average and a .936 save percentage for the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League this season. The 6-foot, 1-inch, 180-pound netminder backed up Laurent Brossoit the past two seasons.

The 18-year-old from British Columbia impressed during the Top Prospects Game, stopping all 16 shots he faced.

Pittsburgh was slated to make its first pick of the day during the third round (77th overall) before agreeing to a deal with the Sharks, sending forward Tyler Kennedy to San Jose in exchange for a second-round pick. The Penguins sent that pick along with their second pick of the third round (89th overall) to Columbus in exchange for the 44th overall pick.
