Pittsburgh Penguins Could Trade Tristan Jarry During 2024 Offseason

The Pittsburgh Penguins are a mess and while there's been many reasons for their disappointing season, goaltender Tristan Jarry is becoming a bit of the fall guy. Jarry's seen his workload reduced in a major way down the stretch and has recently lost the starting job to Alex Nedeljkovic. 

After signing a long-term extension back in July, there's growing speculation that GM Kyle Dubas will entertain trade offers this summer for on the soon-to-be 29-year-old netminder. Jarry is set to earn $5.3 million AAV for the next five seasons and does have a 12-team no-trade clause as part of his upcoming extension.

So far this season through 50 appearances, Jarry has posted a .903 Sv.%, which is lower than league average. Jarry's been pulled three times in his last seven starts and is set to take the net against the New York Rangers on Monday.

Nedeljkovic is a pending free agent, however the Penguins do have AHLer Joel Blomqvist who is turning heads in the minors and could be ready for NHL action as soon as next season. Dubas is going to be looking to re-tool on the fly as his first season at the helm in Pittsburgh did not go anywhere near as planned.

If Jarry ends up getting moved, expect to see the Los Angeles Kings very interested. They've been looking to land a long-term option in net for a couple of seasons and have recently missed out on trading for Linus Ullmark before the trade deadline after Ullmark rejected the deal.
