Penguins G Casey DeSmith out for season after surgery

Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Casey DeSmith will miss the rest of the playoffs following successful core muscle surgery on Friday morning, coach Mike Sullivan announced.

DeSmith was injured Tuesday during Pittsburgh’s 4-3 win in triple-overtime in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference first-round series against the New York Rangers.

DeSmith, 30, started in place of injured All-Star Tristan Jarry and made 48 saves before leaving with 10:42 left in the second OT due to a lower-body injury.

Louis Domingue relieved DeSmith in Game 1 and started Game 2 on Thursday night. The Rangers won 5-2 to even the series at 1-1, with Game 3 on Saturday in Pittsburgh.

DeSmith was 11-6-5 with three shutouts, a 2.79 goals-against average and a .914 save percentage in the 2021-22 regular season.

Jarry, 27, is considered day-to-day with a foot injury. He was 34-18-6 with four shutouts, a 2.42 GAA and a .919 save percentage in the regular season.
