Predators sign goalie Smith

Goalie Jeremy Smith has signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Nashville Predators, the team announced Tuesday.

The deal is worth $660,000 at the NHL level or $65,000 at the AHL level.

The 23-year-old restricted free agent played for the Milwaukee Admirals in the American Hockey League last season. He was second in the league in wins (31) and shutouts (five) and posted a 2.17 goals-against average.

He was selected by Nashville in the second round (No. 54) of the 2007 NHL Draft.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
