Coyotes' Smith reportedly close to six-year extension
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 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.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
