NEWARK, N.J. -- The Penguins' first choice in the 2013 NHL draft is goalie Tristan Jarry.
He was taken 44th overall, after the Penguins sent picks No. 50 -- acquired from San Jose for right winger Tyler Kennedy a few hours earlier -- and 89 to Columbus.
Jarry is 6 feet 1 inch, 178 pounds and had an 18-7 record, 1.61 goals-against average and .936 save percentage in 27 appearances with the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey League.
The Penguins are now scheduled to have one choice each in Rounds 3, 4, 6 and 7.
