Mike Smith is moving past his first rough preseason outing.
Smith allowed four goals on 13 shots before leaving halfway through the game. "It was far from good," Smith said. "But the good thing is there’s a lot of work left to do. I’ll be out there first thing on Wednesday to get some stuff done. There’s been a lot of lead-up to this pre-season, so it was nice to get out there and at least get into a game. It wasn’t the outcome I was looking for, but it’s the pre-season, and I don’t necessarily look at the results. I want to feel good in the regular season, and this was just a stepping stone." You can't read too much into preseason results, especially when you're just talking about the preseason opener. Still, Smith's struggles might attract a bit more attention given that he was acquired by Calgary over the summer and his results over the last three years have been less than ideal. Sep 19 - 4:16 AM

Mike Smith stopped just nine of 13 shots in a 5-4 loss to Edmonton Monday night.

Smith served in the first half of the game while Jon Gillies took the other half and turned aside eight of nine Oilers shots. What makes this outing worse for Smith is the fact that Edmonton and Calgary were playing two simultaneous preseason games and most of Edmonton's bigger offensive threats like Connor McDavid, Patrick Maroon, and Ryan Strome, were participating in the other contest (which Edmonton also won 5-2), so Smith wasn't facing Edmonton's best. That being said, it was just a preseason game so we can't be too concerned with Smith's performance.

Calgary coach Glen Gulutzan is glad to have Mike Smith between the pipes for the Flames.

Gulutzan joked that he would still have his job coaching Dallas if it weren't for Smith and the Coyotes. "That was the one team that we were battling with tooth-and-nail down to the wire (during the 2011-12 season) and he was just a brick wall," said Gulutzan. "So when I talked to him, I told him, 'I'd still be in Dallas if it wasn't for you.'" He is excited to have a goaltender who can steal games.

GM Brad Treliving was not concerned about trading for 35-year-old Mike Smith.

While the Flames upper management gave the age factor some consideration, in the end they were not worried about Smith's age. "There’s no question, we spent a long time looking at that," Treliving said Saturday. "It was a consideration. The one thing I’d say with Mike, knowing him, he’s about as athletic and gifted genetically and the way he looks after himself ...it’s better than anyone I’ve ever been around. He’s a young 35. There’s no question, you give (his age) some pause. He’s got a low odometer, I’d say. He really didn’t become a starting goaltender until he was 30-years-old so there’s low miles on him. He’s a little bit of a genetic freak, this guy." Smith has 19-26-9 in 2016-17 with a 2.92 GAA and a .914 save percentage. His numbers should improve on Calgary.

The Calgary Flames have acquired Mike Smith from the Arizona Coyotes for goaltender Chad Johnson, Brandon Hickey and a conditional third-round draft pick.

The Flames came into the off-season with both Johnson and Brian Elliott eligible to become unrestricted free agents on July 1st, so they had to make a move to stability their goaltending. Smith's numbers haven't been pretty over the last couple of years, but that's mainly because the Coyotes haven't been very good in front of him. The 35-year-old had a 19-26-9 record with a 2.92 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage in 2016-17. He has two years remaining on his contract at a cap hit of $5.67 million, but the 'Yotes are retaining 25 percent of his salary. The conditional third-round pick becomes a second-rounder if the Flames make the playoffs next year.

The Arizona Coyotes and Calgary Flames are reportedly working on a trade involving goaltender Mike Smith.

It's no secret that the Flames need to improve their goaltending situation going into next season so the move makes sense. Smith has two years remaining on his current deal at a cap hit of $5.67 million per season. The 35-year-old had a 19-26-9 record with a 2.92 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage. His numbers aren't very good, but the team in front of him wasn't overly impressive either. We'll keep you posted as this situation continues to unfold.

Mike Smith has reportedly submitted a list to the Coyotes of eight teams that he won't be traded to.

Smith has a modified no-trade clause. Arizona GM John Chayka may not be actively shopping the veteran netminder, but he is clearly listening to offers.

Mike Smith is not being shopped by the Coyotes, according to GM John Chayka.

"If it's being viewed as me making Mike available and starting a bidding war, that's not the case," Chayka told Arizona Sports. "We're taking calls on players every year. I don't think anyone is untradeable, but like we talked about last year with Oliver Ekman-Larsson, he's up as high on that list as anyone." Smith has two seasons left on a contract that carries a $5.67-million salary cap hit and a no-trade clause. Chayka praised the stability that Smith has provided, but added that the right offer makes anybody a trade possibility.

Mike Smith is frustrated after having gone through another campaign without a playoff berth.

"It sucks," Smith said. "It sucks. It’s the NHL. You play to play in the playoffs. When you’re out of the playoffs for five years in a row, I think it really leaves a bad taste in your mouth. You want to be playing this time of year. That’s why you play 82 games, to compete for the Stanley Cup. Fell quite short again this year. Personally, I don’t think it’s acceptable." Arizona last made the playoffs in 2012 and this season the Coyotes didn't even come close. Despite that, the Coyotes have a lot of great prospects on its squad and it's possible that they'll take a big leap forward next season if they have strong campaigns. We certainly wouldn't bet on Arizona getting back into the playoffs in 2017-18, but it's not something that should be dismissed out of hand either.

Mike Smith stopped 42 of 45 shots in a 3-1 loss to Minnesota Saturday night.

It's an appropriate end to the season for Smith as he was once again bombarded with shots while getting little in the way of offensive support. Not that Smith was blameless in the Coyotes' struggles this season. Either way, with 2016-17 in the books he had a 19-26-9 record, 2.92 GAA, and .914 save percentage in 55 starts.
Apr 9 - 12:16 AM

The Coyotes found themselves down 2-0 in the first period, but they managed to fight back to tie the game. In overtime, rookie Julius Honka scored his first career goal to give Dallas the win. Smith has now dropped seven of his last eight games. He has a 19-25-9 record with a 2.92 goals-against-average and a .914 save percentage.
Apr 4 - 11:43 PM

Mike Smith will be between the pipes for Tuesday's game against the Dallas Stars.
