The Daily: Jarry 1st Penguins Goalie To Score; Sharks Trade Talk



Tristan Jarry, Penguins

The Pittsburgh Penguins clearly own the highest-scoring goalie tandem in the NHL today. Tristan Jarry and former Red Wings goalie Alex Nedeljkovic now have five professional goals between them.

Jarry became the first Penguins goalie to score in an NHL game when he ripped a shot all the way down the ice, into an empty net, during a 4-2 win against the Tampa Bay Lightning Thursday.

Two weeks ago,  Penguins backup Alex Nedeljkovic was on a conditioning stint with the Penguins’ Wilkes-Barre Scranton AHL team and scored his third professional goal. It was his second AHL tally. He also scored during an ECHL game on Dec. 30, 2016.

Jarry, 28, netted his AHL goal five years ago. As the video shows, Jarry’s goal against the Lightning was a no-doubter. It’s a strong, high shot.
