Murray or Jarry, Penguins

Matt Murray or Tristan Jarry likely will be traded by the Pittsburgh Penguins prior to next season, general manager Jim Rutherford said Monday.

Rutherford said he has received interest from teams in the two goalies, who each can become a restricted free agent after this season.

“I haven’t gotten to the point yet where I’m having serious talks or seeing exactly how much I can get,” Rutherford told The Athletic. “But I will say, I’m getting close to that point, to understanding just what people are willing to give. So, we’ll see. I don’t know exactly how it’s going to go, but I can already see that there is going to be a lot of interest.

“There is already interest. And it looks like we’re going to have to move one of them.”

Murray, who won the Stanley Cup with Pittsburgh in 2016 and 2017, played the final season of a three-year, $11.25 million contract ($3.75 million average annual value) he signed Oct. 20, 2016. Jarry played the final season of a two-year, $1.35 million contract ($675,000 average annual value) he signed July 26, 2018.
