The Phoenix Coyotes are reportedly closing in on signing goalie Mike Smith to a six-year contract extension, according to TSN and NHL Network insider Darren Dreger. The contract is pending approval from the NHL, which maintains ownership of the Coyotes.

Smith, who would have become an unrestricted free agent July 5, reportedly will make approximately $5.67 million per season under his new deal.

Smith went 15-12-5 with a 2.58 goals-against average, .910 save percentage and five shutouts in 2012-13. He was 38-18-10 with a 2.21 GAA, .930 save percentage and eight shutouts in 2011-12, when he helped the Coyotes reach the Western Conference Final.
