Mike Smith kicked out 11 of 13 shots in a 5-3 victory over Los Angeles on Monday.
Both of the goals Smith allowed were on redirects. He was pulled midway through the game for Louis Domingue, but that was a change that they planned prior to the contests. At the beginning of each season it seems like Smith is the story of a goaltender with potential, but also a lot to prove, which is a narrative that's not exactly encouraging when you're talking about a 34-year-old. If this is the season that Smith rekindles his 2011-12 success then Arizona could turn some heads, but that's far from a good bet. Sep 27 - 5:04 AM

Mike Smith will start in Monday's preseason game against the Los Angeles Kings.

Smith had a 2.63 GAA and .916 save percentage in 32 games in 2015-16. Rather than let Smith play the full 60 minutes, the plan is for Louis Domingue to enter into the contest around the halfway mark.

Mike Smith thinks the fact that he was able to return towards the end of the 2015-16 campaign will help him over the summer.

Smith got into 10 starts after a roughly three-month absence. "To get back in the net (and) not only feel good physically but get back and play well and know I came back from the injury and not have to dwell on it for the rest of the summer, I think that was important mentally and physically," he said. Smith was also rather good between the pipes after returning from the core muscle injury, posting a .944 save percentage in those 10 contests. He had a 2.63 GAA and .916 save percentage in 32 starts overall in 2015-16.

Apr 10 - 3:12 AM

Mike Smith will face San Jose on Saturday night.

Since coming back from injury, Smith is 5-3-1 in nine games with two shutouts and 17 goals against. Considering how much the Coyotes would like to go out with a smile, we'd expect an excellent effort from him and the team.
