The 30-year-old was effectively eligible for unrestricted free agency after completing a three-year, $3.75 million deal.
Last season, DeSmith played in 26 games, posting an 11-6-5 record, a 2.79 goals-against average and a .914 save percentage. He also started Game 1 of the first-round series against the New York Rangers, but an injury forced him to retire to the locker room mid-game.
The American has totaled 96 games since arriving in Pittsburgh in 2017-2018, the campaign following the Penguins' last Stanley Cup victory.
