Oilers, goaltender Mike Smith agree to terms on one-year, $2M deal

Edmonton Oilers goalie Mike Smith is excited to be back with the team after signing a one-year deal with the Oilers. Smith said he's ready for a potential tight schedule for next season and give the best he can.

The Edmonton Oilers are bringing back netminder Mike Smith on a one-year, $2-million deal, the team announced Saturday.

Smith, 38, appeared in 39 games for the Oilers in 2019-20, winning 19 of his 37 starts and finishing the campaign with a .902 save percentage, 2.95 goals-against average, and with one shutout to his name.

The veteran spent two years in Calgary prior to his Oilers stint, preceded by runs in Phoenix, Tampa Bay and Dallas.

Smith will once again split time in the cage with Mikko Koskinen next season, with the latter signed on for two more years in Edmonton. Koskinen appeared in 38 games in total last season, one fewer than Smith, starting 33 of those.
