Mike Smith managed to turn away 27 shots on Friday night, but the Coyotes still fell to the Sharks 3-0.
The Coyotes only put 18 shots on Martin Jones themselves, and just two in the middle frame. This was commonplace for the Coyotes last season, and though it's only one pre-season game, the trend points towards much the same lies ahead this season. Oct 3 - 12:30 AM

Mike Smith made his first start of the preseason in a 1-0 loss against the Vancouver Canucks on Monday night.

Smith had been sidelined with soreness, but returned to action to post a .958 save percentage on the night. It took a power-play goal by rookie Jared McCann at 8:34 of the third period to finally put one past Smith, who was sturdy in goal, kicking aside 23 of 24 shots in the loss.

Mike Smith has been sidelined with soreness.

The injury was undisclosed on Friday and it forced him to miss Friday's preseason tilt. He should be ready for the start of the season. The netminder had a horrible season in 2014-15 but played well in the second half and backstopped Canada to the World Championship. If all goes well, he could be a half-decent second goalie on most fantasy teams.

Mike Smith is dealing with an undisclosed injury and won't participate in Friday's preseason contest as a result.

Smith was described as being sore, which obviously sounds minor. We'll err on the side of caution and list him as day-to-day for now, but for now we're not too concerned.

The 2015 World Championships seems to have been a morale booster for Mike Smith.

Smith had a 1.50 GAA and .930 save percentage in the tournament to help Canada win a gold medal. "It reiterates that I'm a pretty good goalie," Smith said. "It's been a tough year mentally on me. Physically, I got a good handle on that, but I think mentally, going into the summer knowing that I've played some pretty good hockey now for three months or so, I think it's important." Smith had a 3.16 GAA and .904 save percentage in 62 games with Arizona in 2014-15. He did do somewhat better in the second half of the campaign though and it wouldn't be surprising to see him do at least moderately better in 2015-16.

Mike Smith only had to stop 11 shots in Canada's 6-1 win over Russia in the gold medal game of the World Hockey Championships.

He posted a 1.50 goals-against average (second in the tournament) and .930 save percentage (third overall). Smith had a shutout streak of 190:03 before Evgeni Malkin scored Russia's only goal of the match.

Mike Smith did everything he needed to do as Canada blanked the Czech Republic in the 2015 World Hockey Championships' semifinal round.

Smith made 23 stops for a fairly easy shutout in a 2-0 win. This has to be a refreshing change of pace for the Arizona Coyotes netminder.
May 16 - 4:10 PM

Mike Smith plans to change his offseason training regime in the hopes of avoiding another disastrous start.

"In the past, it's been coming into camp and working myself into game form whereas this year I'll be coming into camp on all cylinders," Smith said. He posted a 3.96 GAA and .866 save percentage in seven October starts and it wasn't until February that he started to turn his season around. By then the damage had already been done. Smith admitted that his early season struggles impacted his confidence and that might be part of the reason why his slump lasted for months.

Mike Smith will join Team Canada for the 2015 World Championship.

Smith had a 1.65 GAA and .944 save percentage in the 2013 Worlds. He also won an Olympic gold medal in 2014, but he didn't get any playing time during the tournament. For Smith this is an opportunity to put an ugly 2014-15 campaign behind him as he finished with a 3.16 GAA and .904 save percentage. It is worth adding though that Smith did actually do a decent job in the second half of the campaign.
Apr 14 - 5:19 PM

Mike Smith blocked 36 shots in the Coyotes’ 2-1 loss to the Ducks on Saturday night.

The good news is that Smith has regained some of the lost value from his dreadful first few months of the season. The bad news is that even after two months of at least a .914 save percentage, Smith ends the year with a 3.16 goals-against average and .904 SV%. He is a very risky bet next season.
Apr 12 - 12:16 AM

Mike Smith will get the season finale on Saturday night against the Anaheim Ducks.

Smith's nightmarish season will finally come to a close after tonight, but he brings his 14-41-5 record with a .903 save percentage and a 3.18 GAA through 61 games. Smith has beaten the Ducks just once over his last seven tries with 17 combined goals against.
Apr 11 - 5:08 PM

Mike Smith was chased in just 37:10 of ice time after surrendering four goals on 24 shots during Thursday's 5-0 loss to the Canucks. Smith was replaced by Louis Domingue to finish the game, he allowed a goal on eight shots.

Smith's career-worst season continued, and it wasn't pretty as each goal could have been stopped. This was the 21st time this season that Smith has allowed at least four goals in a game, and 11 of them have seen five or six pucks go in as well. The loss drops Smith's record to 14-41-5 with a .903 save percentage and a 3.18 GAA.
Apr 10 - 1:55 AM

Mike Smith will get the start in Thursday's game against Vancouver.

The 33-year-old has posted some ugly numbers this season but that isn't just his fault. Smith has a 14-40-5 record with a 3.14 goals-against-average and a .904 save percentage in 60 games. He's dropped three of his last four games coming into tonight's action. You may want to avoid using him in one-day fantasy leagues.
Apr 9 - 6:26 PM

Mike Smith made 29 saves on 32 shots in a 3-2 loss to Calgary on Tuesday.

Smith was very good in this game and probably deserved a better fate. His nightmare season continued though as he was credited with this NHL worst 40th loss. Believe it or not his numbers have actually improved of late and he owns a 3.14 GAA and .904 save percentage in 60 games.
Apr 8 - 12:31 AM

Mike Smith will get the start against the Calgary Flames on Tuesday night.

The Coyotes come in last in the west, and up just two points over the Sabres for last in the NHL. Smith for his part brings his 14-39-5 record with a .904 save percentage and a 3.14 GAA over 59 games this season. Smith has yet to beat Calgary in three games this season with a dozen goals against on 72 combined shots.
