Per coach Dave Tippett, goaltender Mike Smith is considered "week-to-week" with a lower body injury.
Depending upon the type of league you're in, that may signal that it's time to go get Louis Domingue. But if you're fortunate enough to go nab a goalie on a better team, go for it. We'll keep you posted on Smith's recovery. Oct 23 - 12:48 PM

Goalie Mike Smith has been placed on the Arizona Coyotes' injury list.

The move makes room for the return of defenseman Michael Stone to the the Coyotes' lineup. Stone made his season debut Friday night in the Coyotes' game against the Islanders in New York.

Mike Smith (lower body) is returning to Arizona for further evaluation.

Smith is regarded as day-to-day, though the fact that he's temporarily parting ways with the team might make it safe to say that he'll miss several games. That's mostly due to the nature of the Coyotes' upcoming schedule as they're in Montreal tonight, and then in New York to play the Islanders on Friday and Rangers Sunday. In total, Arizona has five games left on its current road trip.

Mike Smith (lower body) was seen using a knee brace on Wednesday.

The Coyotes have described Smith's status as day-to-day with a lower-body injury, but they're also awaiting the results of tests. That being said, Coyotes coach Dave Tippett felt it was a positive that Smith is already up and walking around after sustaining the injury on Tuesday.

Mike Smith is listed as day-to-day with a lower-body injury.

He underwent some tests to determine the severity of the ailment and we will let you know the results once they are announced. Smith was injured in Tuesday night's match against Ottawa.
Oct 19 - 3:38 PM

Mike Smith exited Tuesday's game against the Senators with a lower-body injury.

Smith appeared to injure his left leg during the third period of tonight's game. The veteran needed some assistance getting off the ice. When he left the game, the Coyotes were down 3-2. But the Sens scored two quick goals on backup Louis Domingue. Smith ended up with a no-decision tonight. It seems unlikely that he'll be ready for Thursday's game against Montreal.

Mike Smith is between the pipes for Tuesday's game against Ottawa.

He enters tonight's game with a 1-0-0 record and a 2.86 goals-against-average and a .900 save percentage in 2016-17.
Oct 18 - 7:53 PM

Mike Smith made some high-level-of-difficulty saves, particularly during overtime, as the Arizona Coyotes managed a 4-3 OT win against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Smith stopped 27 out of 30 shots as Arizona won its season-opener. We'll see if Smith can edge Louis Domingue for the starting job over the long haul. The Coyotes likely will need strong play from both with a six-game road trip looming.
Oct 16 - 12:08 AM

Mike Smith will play against the Flyers on Saturday night.

In 15 career games against Philadelphia Smith has been quite porous. He's 5-7-2 with an .898 save percentage and 44 goals against. He hasn't been much better against the East either, going 71-85-23 with a .906 SV% and 2.85 GAA.

Mike Smith stopped 29 of 30 shots in a 3-1 win over the Sharks on Friday.

Mixtures of injuries and below average play from the Coyotes have resulted in Smith posting below average numbers the last couple of seasons. If he can stay healthy, he can push 60 starts and still maintain some value in your fantasy leagues. He can pay off as a late round gamble if you waited on drafting goalies.
Oct 8 - 12:44 AM

Mike Smith made 36 saves in Wednesday night’s 2-1 loss to the Calgary Flames.

Smith could hardly be said to have had a bad showing Wednesday night with a save percentage of .973. Last year he played only 32 games after missing a couple of months to a core muscle injury. He played the entire evening, recording 64:51 minutes in the contest.
Oct 6 - 12:28 AM

Along with Shane Doan, Mike Smith was a difference-maker in the Arizona Coyotes' 3-2 overtime preseason win against the Anaheim Ducks.

Smith stopped 38 out of 40 shots as the Coyotes won despite a 40-30 shot margin in favor of Anaheim.
Oct 2 - 12:07 AM

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.
Sep 26 - 5:19 PM

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.
