The Pittsburgh Penguins and goaltender Tristan Jarry have agreed to terms on a five-year contract extension worth $5.375 million annually. Jarry has been a solid goaltender for the Pittsburgh Penguins, and this contract is a result of his play. Second for goaltending in Pittsburgh is Alex Nedeljkovic, Nedeljkovic has agreed to a one-year contract worth $1.5 million annually. Nedeljkovic has had a couple of down seasons, but his upside is limitless, and he could stabilize Pittsburgh’s goaltending area.

In Tristan Jarry’s tenure with Pittsburgh, he has played 206 total games across seven seasons. In Jarry’s 2022-23 season, he played 47 games and posted a 2.90 goals-against average and a 0.909 save percentage. Jarry has split time with Casey DeSmith, DeSmith has one year left on his contract, worth $1.8 million annually.

Alex Nedeljkovic is an interesting signing, but a third goaltender option with not a lot of risks but a great reward if he pans out. Nedeljkovic showed a promising future with the Carolina Hurricanes before being traded to the Detroit Red Wings, where he showed even more promise. Nedeljkovic’s 2022-23 season was split between the NHL and AHL levels. In 15 games with the Detroit Red Wings, Nedelkovic posted a 3.53 goals against average and a 0.895 save percentage.
