North Delta native Tristan Jarry has signed an entry level contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League (NHL).

The 18 year-old goaltender inked a three-year deal Sept. 4, and is  among six goaltenders invited to the Penguins main camp which began Wednesday at the CONSOL Energy Centre in Pittsburgh.

The contract will begin when Jarry turns professional. He will play this coming season with the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League.

Pittsurgh traded up at last June’s NHL Entry Draft to draft Jarry in the second round, 44th overall.

“We see a potential starting goalie,” said Randy Sexton, assistant director of scouting with the Penguins. “He’s got the technical foundation and the size we think to be a starter.”

The 6-foot-1, 178-pound netminder posted the lowest goals-against average (1.61) and highest save percentage (.936) in the Western Hockey League (WHL) last season. His six shutouts were tied for fourth-most in the WHL.

In two seasons with the Oil Kings, Jarry has appeared in 41 career regular-season games, going 26-9-1 with a 2.03 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage.
