2018 Fantasy Outlook
Heading into training camp, DeSmith figures to be slightly behind Tristan Jarry in the battle for the No. 2 job in Pittsburgh -- if only because the organization used a high pick (44th overall) on Jarry. The competition to serve as Matt Murray's backup should be considered wide open and a decision for the Opening Night roster spot likely won't be made until well into September. Even if DeSmith were to find himself in the minors to start the season, both players are on two-way deals and a flip could be made at any point during the year. Considering how often Murray deals with injuries, the 26-year-old could see some time between the pipes in the NHL this year -- how much won't become clear for awhile. Read Past Outlooks

On three-game losing streak

January 19, 2019
DeSmith allowed six goals on 34 shots in a 7-3 loss to the Golden Knights on Saturday.
This stat line doesn't come anywhere close to suggesting how well DeSmith played. He faced several breakaway chances in the first two periods and made some great saves, allowing the Penguins to come back and tie the game at three Saturday. It looked as though the Penguins took the lead on a power-play goal in the second, but the officials wiped out the score after review. It was all Golden Knights after that. Regardless, DeSmith is on a cold streak, having gone 0-3-0 with an .841 save percentage in his last three starts.
