Tristan Jarry is headed to his first NHL All-Star Game.
The NHL announced this week the North Delta native will serve as the replacement for Columbus goaltender Joonas Korpisalo, representing the Metropolitan Division. The game will take place Jan. 25 in St. Louis.
The 24-year old has appeared in 20 games for the Penguins this season, accumulating a record of 13-6-1. Jarry is one win shy of equaling his career-high win total of 14 set in 2017/18.
Jarry leads the league in all major goaltending categories with a 1.99 goals-against average, .935 save percentage and three shutouts (tied). He has allowed two goals or less in 14 of his 20 appearances this year, helping the Penguins rank fifth in the NHL with 113 goals against.
The Pittsburgh goaltender's three shutouts so far this season all came within a four-game span from Dec. 4 to 12. Jarry set a new franchise shutout streak record at 177:15 minutes between Nov. 29 and Dec. 10., including back-to-back shutouts on Dec. 4 against St. Louis (28 saves) and Dec. 6 versus Arizona (33 saves). His third shutout came on Dec. 12 versus Columbus, when he became just the second goaltender in Penguins history to record three shutouts in four appearances.
Jarry came through the North Delta Minor Hockey Association before joining the Delta Hockey Academy. He enjoyed an outstanding Western Hockey League career with the Edmonton Oil Kings resulting in him being selected in the second round of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft by the Penguins.
