Mike Smith had a new mask made especially to wear for Team Canada at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia. Smith's mask was designed by David Arrigo, who gave details about the mason on his website:
"Smitty is always detail oriented with his masks, and his stance was just a rigorous for the one he will be donning on the hockey world's biggest stage. We landed on a concept that would be centred around a Totem Pole and emphasize the feel that it was crafted from raw wood."

"Smitty was adamant to include various Canadiana icons representing the diverse cultures from coast to coast. On the finished product we ended up with a wide range of symbols, starting with the mountains representing the West coast to a lighthouse for the East coast, and a nice variety representing the many elements in-between."
