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

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.
