Penguins goaltender Tristan Jarry makes a save against the Red Wings in the third period Sunday, Sept. 23, 2018 at PPG Paints Arena.

Now that he’s healed up sufficiently from a lower-body injury suffered in the preseason finale last Friday night in Columbus, goalie Tristan Jarry is on his way to Wilkes-Barre.

The 23-year-old goaltender skated on his own before the Pittsburgh Penguins practiced Friday morning in Cranberry. Shortly thereafter, he was assigned to the AHL.

Health permitting, Jarry could play in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton’s season opener Saturday night at home against Springfield.

The Penguins placed Jarry on the injured non-roster list Tuesday to get to the league-mandated 23-man roster limit by opening night, thus awarding the back-up goalie job behind Matt Murray to Casey DeSmith.

Jarry is 54-33-8 with a 2.49 goals-against average and .914 save percentage in his AHL career.

Follow the Pittsburgh Penguins all season long.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper.

Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail.
