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

DeSmith allowed four goals on 24 shots on the road against Los Angeles on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
DeSmith -- who was making his first start since signing a new three-year contract extension -- has lost in each of his last two contests, the only two defeats for the Penguins in their last 12 outings. The New Hampshire native figures to see one more start before the All-Star break, as the team has a back-to-back Friday and Saturday versus Arizona and Vegas, respectively.
