  Source: Greg Southam/Edmonton Journal The fans of the Pittsburgh Penguins were simply waiting for their team to select a player with the 50th overall pick they acquired from the San Jose Sharks for the rights to forward Tyler Kennedy. After a first round in which the Penguins did not pick a player because of their trade for Jarome Iginla, general manager Ray Shero traded the 50th overall pick and the 89th overall pick to the Columbus Blue Jackets in exchange for the 44th overall pick. With the 44th overall selection the draft, the Penguins chose goaltender Tristan Jarry. The 18 year-old goaltender played for the Edmonton Oil Kings of the WHL this past season and was ranked as the second/third best prospect at the position in this draft class. Jarry recorded a 18-7 record, 1.61 goals-against average, and a .936 save-percentage this season backing up Laurent Brossoit. His 6 shutouts was tied for the second most in the WHL. Jarry recorded a shutout in the 2013 CHL Top Prospects Game and was named the player of the game. Jarry is a very athletic goaltender with good size that has looked great when he has played. The only problem is that he has not played all that much since he has been a backup in Edmonton. Jarry will need to get more playing time in order to develop into a starting goaltender someday. With his great vision, he reads the play very well, which is one of the best aspects of his game. The Penguins clearly wanted Jarry since they traded up to get him.
