Afternoon Player Notes in the Draft (Jan 12)
On Friday, the Pittsburgh Penguins recalled goaltender Casey DeSmith to take the spot of the number one, Matt Murray, as he has gone back home to Ontario to take care of some personal family matters. The Penguins have back-to-back games at home this weekend, Saturday against the Red Wings and Sunday against the Rangers and it looks like it will be Tristan Jarry's net for at least one of those games. There was no word on when the team expects Murray to be back, but we'll consider him day-to-day.
Certainly not great news for Stacey M., as her number one goalie will miss at least one scheduled start, while her team tries to chase down a money spot this year. Derek B., who just passed Stacey's team this week, is the benefactor of this news, as his goalie will take that one start and could just as easily get both starts of the back-to-back, thus possibly putting some distance between their pool teams.
