History

2009-10: Tristan Jarry played bantam hockey in British Columbia with the North Delta Sundevils and was select by the Edmonton Oil Kings in the third round (46th overall) of the 2010 WHL Bantam Draft.

2010-11: Jarry split the goaltending duties with Brodie Burdeny for the Greater Vancouver Canadians midget major team in British Columbia. In 20 regular season games he had a 2.31 goals against. The Canadians advanced to the playoff semifinals after finishing in third place and Jarry played all six playoff games. Jarry won a gold medal with Team British Columbia in the 2011 Canada Winter Games; playing in two games with a 3.30 goals against and .868 save percentage as Jackson Whittle handled the bulk of the goaltending.

2011-12: Jarry appeared in 14 games for the WHL champion Edmonton Oil Kings in his first season of junior hockey and played for Canada Pacific in the 2012 U17 World Hockey Challenge. He was 8-2-1 for the Oil Kings and had a 2.93 goals against and .894 save percentage. Jarry did not see any post-season playoff action as a backup to starter Laurent Brossoit in the WHL playoffs and at the Memorial Cup. Jarry was 2-0 at the WHC, sharing the goaltending with Eric Comrie, and finished with a 1.95 goals against and .943 save percentage.

2012-13: Jarry returned to Edmonton for a second season, seeing a bit more time while Brossoit once again handled the majority of the goaltending. In 27 games for the Oil Kings he was 18-7 with a team-high six shutouts and had a 1.61 goals against and .936 save percentage. The Oil Kings again finished first in the Central Division. Jarry made his first playoff appearance, playing 26:30 minutes in relief of Brossoit in Edmonton's Eastern Conference finals game with Calgary. He stopped all three shots he faced. Jarry was ranked third amongst North American goaltenders in Central Scouting's final rankings prior to the 2013 NHL Draft.

 

Talent Analysis

Though relatively untested at the CHL level, Jarry possesses a package of skills that scouts find extremely appealing.

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

Jarry is, in many regards, the antithesis of current Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury. His glove and stick work are already thought to be pretty good and his mental game is considered top notch. He seems to be able to maintain an even temper under duress and his game is typically unaffected by bad goals.

Future

Jarry will play for the Edmonton Oil Kings in 2013-14 where he will be expected to see 40-50 starts. How he is able to handle a larger workload will greatly determine how he projects at higher levels of competition.

The Colorado Avalanche effectively eliminated any drama surrounding the first overall selection at the 2013 NHL Draft by spreading the word weeks in advance that they were leaning toward selecting a forward. True to their word, the Avalanche bypassed Portland Winterhawks defenseman Seth Jones in favor of the Halifax Mooseheads’ Nathan McKinnon. In fact, Jones dropped to fourth overall where he was picked up by the ecstatic Nashville Predators.
