Penguins sign DeSmith to 3-year extension
"Casey has excelled for us at every level, first in Wheeling and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, and now here in Pittsburgh," general manager Jim Rutherford said in a statement.
The 27-year-old is enjoying his longest stretch of games in the NHL after just 14 appearances with Pittsburgh last season. In 26 games in 2018-19, DeSmith has gone 12-7-4 with a .924 save percentage and a 2.47 goals-against average.
DeSmith's extension will keep him with the Penguins through the 2021-22 season.
