SPRINGFIELD, Mass. … The American Hockey League announced today that Tristan Jarry of the Pittsburgh Penguins has been selected as the Ephesus/AHL Graduate of the Month for December.

Jarry was 8-1-0 in nine appearances for Pittsburgh in December, posting a 1.54 goals-against average, a .947 save percentage and three shutouts.

A second-round pick by the Penguins in the 2013 NHL Draft, Jarry spent parts of four seasons with Pittsburgh’s top development affiliate in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, compiling a record of 77-48-15 with a 2.55 GAA, a .915 save percentage and nine shutouts in 141 AHL games. Jarry was an AHL All-Star in 2017 and was a recipient of the Harry “Hap” Holmes Memorial Award for team goaltending in 2016-17. On Nov. 14, 2018, Jarry became the 14th goaltender in AHL history to score a goal when his 170-foot shot found an empty net in a game against Springfield.

The National Hockey League’s “Second Star” of the Month for December, Jarry is 13-6-1 for Pittsburgh this season and leads the NHL in goals-against average (1.99), save percentage (.935) and shutouts (3, tied). The 24-year-old native of Surrey, B.C., has a record of 27-14-4 (2.48, .918) in 49 career NHL contests.
