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

For us it's a little bit different. I've never been in front of this much media. This is more than we've ever had to deal with in Tampa. I guess we're on a little bit bigger stage now. It's nice, you have to enjoy it. This doesn't happen too often.
