After going 20-12 in 31 games with a save percentage of .921 and a goal against average of 2.43 for the Pittsburgh Penguins, Tristan Jarry earned the starting job at goaltender. With Jarry earning his spot and getting a contract extension worth $10.5 million for three years, Matt Murray is the odd man out in Pittsburgh and after weeks of trade talks, the team pulled the trigger on Murray.
