NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -The Nashville Predators signed goaltender Jeremy Smith to an entry-level contract.
President of Hockey Operations and General Manager David Poile announced the signing Wednesday. Smith was among the Ontario Hockey League leaders in save percentage and shutouts in his second full season with the Plymouth Whalers.
He was also selected to the OHL All-Star Classic. As a rookie in 2006-07, Smith helped lead Plymouth to the 2007 OHL Championship and shared the Dave Pinkney Trophy for the best team goals-against average.
He was Nashville's second-round pick in the 2007 draft.
