NHL Injury: Tristan Jarry and Chris Tanev out, Shayne Gostibehere out 4-6 weeks, and more

Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Tristan Jarry will be sidelined until after the NHL All-Star break due to an upper-body injury, coach Mike Sullivan announced Wednesday.

“We think that’ll be a productive time for him to be at his best,” Sullivan said of Jarry, who will sit out Thursday’s game at Washington and Saturday’s home contest versus San Jose. The Penguins return to action on Feb. 7.

Tristan Jarry out until after All-Star break

Jarry did not participate in practice on Wednesday, one day after he was a late scratch for the team’s 7-6 overtime win against the Florida Panthers.

He had turned aside 67 of 70 shots in two games since returning from a lower-body injury.

Jarry, 27, owns a 16-5-5 record with a 2.65 goals-against average and .921 save percentage in 27 games (all starts) this season.

He is 109-52-18 with 12 shutouts, a 2.59 GAA and .916 save percentage in 186 career games (178 starts) since being selected by Pittsburgh in the second round of the 2013 NHL Draft.

Casey DeSmith, who struggled in his spot start versus the Panthers, will join fellow goaltender Dustin Tokarski in attempting to hold the fort for Pittsburgh. Tokarski was recalled from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the American Hockey League on an emergency basis.

Arizona Coyotes defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere is expected to miss four to six weeks with an upper-body injury sustained earlier this week.

The Coyotes said Thursday that Gostisbehere was injured during Tuesday night’s 5-2 loss to the Anaheim Ducks.

Gostisbehere, 29, has 29 points (nine goals, 20 assists) in 48 games this season. His point total is second on the team behind Clayton Keller (41).

Gostisbehere is in the final year of a six-year, $27 million deal he signed with Philadelphia in 2017 and will be an unrestricted free agent after this season. The Coyotes acquired him from the Flyers in July 2021.

He has 299 points (83 goals, 216 assists) and 183 penalty minutes in 511 career games with the Flyers (2014-21) and Coyotes.

Chris Tanev out until after All-Star Break

Calgary Flames defenseman Chris Tanev will be sidelined until after the All-Star break due to an upper-body injury, coach Daryl Sutter announced Wednesday.

Tanev sustained the injury following a collision with Columbus Blue Jackets forward Eric Robinson in the first period of Calgary’s 4-3 overtime victory on Monday.

Tanev will sit out Thursday’s game against the visiting Chicago Blackhawks and Friday’s contest versus the host Seattle Kraken. The Flames return to action against the host New York Rangers on Feb. 6.

“Tanev will miss these two games and if everything goes well, we’ll get him back after the break,” Sutter said Wednesday. “If there’s any blessing in having a long break, that’s it, right?”

Tanev, 33, has recorded eight points (one goal, seven assists) in 40 games this season.

He has totaled 166 points (31 goals, 135 assists) in 692 career games with the Vancouver Canucks and Flames.

Alexandre Carrier out 4-6 weeks

Nashville Predators defenseman Alexandre Carrier will miss four to six weeks with an upper-body injury, the team announced Thursday.

In a corresponding move, the Predators recalled defenseman Kevin Gravel from Milwaukee of the American Hockey League.

Carrier, 26, last played Tuesday night against Winnipeg but logged just 4:40 of ice time. He was injured in a fight against Jets defenseman Logan Stanley.

“He’s been playing great, so obviously you hate to see that go down,” Predators defenseman Mattias Ekholm said. “But he did what he thought was right. It was unfortunate the way it happened. He stood up for a teammate. That was great. So good on him, but obviously we’ll miss him.”

Carrier has eight points (two goals, six assists) and 25 penalty minutes in 40 games this season. He has 41 points (six goals, 35 assists) in 141 career games played, all with the Predators.

Gravel, 30, has appeared in four games for Nashville this season. He has 13 points (one goal, 12 assists) in 113 games with four different teams in parts of six seasons.
