Pittsburgh Penguins General Manager Kyle Dubas could be quite busy this summer as his team looks to avoid missing the playoffs three years in a row.

The Penguins' goaltending situation heading into the 2024-25 season is a bit murky. Tristan Jarry is currently penciled in as the team's likely starter for opening night in October, but is there a chance he may not be with the organization when that date rolls around?
According to Rob Rossi of The Athletic, teams around the National Hockey League are getting the sense that the Penguins have made Tristan Jarry available for trade, but it doesn't appear that they are shopping him at this time.
Rossi went on to add that the Penguins will likely hold onto Tristan Jarry is they are unable to add a top-six forward to play with Sidney Crosby or a top-four defenceman, or clear cap space.
"Goaltender Tristan Jarry is not necessarily being shopped by Dubas, but there is a sense among other teams that Jarry is available. While that doesn't mean Dubas or Sullivan has abandoned the idea that Jarry can become a No. 1 goalie, Jarry's inability to wrestle the crease from Alex Nedeljkovic late this past season did not win him many points with top brass, two team sources said."

"The Penguins will keep Jarry if they cannot find a deal that either directly or, by clearing cap space, indirectly addresses a need: a top-six forward (ideally a winger for Crosby) or a top-four defenseman." Rossi said in an article on The Athletic recently.

Jarry, 29, appeared in 51 games this season for the Penguins where he had a record of 19-25-5 with a 2.91 goals against average, a .903 save percentage and six shutouts. The Surrey, British Columbia native has four years remaining on his contract with a cap hit of $5.375 million.
If the Penguins are to trade Tristan Jarry this summer, Kyle Dubas will need to have plan for his replacement pretty quickly. Alex Nedeljkovic is an unrestricted free agent on July 1st and in the minors, the Penguins have Joel Blomqvist, Taylor Gauthier and Filip Larsson, all of whom aren't ready to be in the NHL on a full-time basis.
It seems more likely than not that Tristan Jarry will still be a Pittsburgh Penguin by the time the 2024-25 campaign, unless Kyle Dubas receives an offer that he can't refuse.
