Head coach Mike Sullivan announced Wednesday that the 27-year-old goaltender will be out until after the All-Star Game break. The Pens will face the Washington Capitals on Thursday and the San Jose Sharks on Saturday.

Jarry was first injured in the Winter Classic on Jan. 2 before returning to action against the Ottawa Senators last Friday. He was also in uniform for the game against the New Jersey Devils on Sunday, but was left out for the next one on Tuesday.

“We think it will be the right time for him to be at his best,” Sullivan said at a press briefing.

This season, Jarry is 16-5-5 with a 2.65 goals-against average and .921 save percentage.

Casey DeSmith is expected to be the Penguins’ starting goaltender during the British Columbian’s absence. Former Montreal Canadiens Dustin Tokarski was also recalled from the American League.
