He set career highs across the board in games played (33), wins (20), goals-against average (2.43), save percentage (.921) and shutouts (3).

Jarry’s career year included setting the franchise shutout record at 177:15 minutes between Nov. 29-Dec. 10, which included back-to-back shutouts against St. Louis (Dec. 4) and Arizona (Dec. 6). Two games later, he became just the second goaltender in Penguins history to record three shutouts in four appearances. Jarry split the first four seasons of his professional career between Pittsburgh and the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins of the American Hockey League. He was named an AHL All Star in 2017.

He came through North Delta Minor Hockey Association’s rep program and also spent time with the Major Midget Greater Vancouver Canadians and the Delta Hockey Academy before a stellar career in the Western Hockey League with the Edmonton Oil Kings. The Penguins selected him 44th overall in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
