The Coyotes GM John Chayka thanked Smith for the last six seasons with the team. The deal was first mentioned by Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet. Hickey, who was named team captain for the 2017-18 season, was originally drafted by the Flames in the third round (64th overall) in the 2014 NHL Draft.

Meanwhile, the Flames registered 94 points but were swept in the first round of the postseason by the Anaheim Ducks. Last year's tandem, Brian Elliott and Johnson, was an upgrade over the previous year's trio (Jonas Hiller, Karri Ramo and Joni Ortio). He accumulated 466 saves, finishing with a save percentage of 91.2 percent and recording a goals against average of 2.33. Those totals aren't the worst, but they also aren't indicative of a premier starting goaltender in the National Hockey League, especially coming off of a season where he went 23-8-6 with a 2.07 goals against average and a.930 save percentage in St. Louis just one year prior. The 6-foot-3, 196-pound native of Saskatoon, Sask., appeared in four games with the Coyotes in 2012-13, posting a 2-0-2 record with a 1.21 GAA and a.954 SV%. Similar totals to what Elliott posted, but Johnson did so while designated as a backup. Smith started 32 of those contests and went 15-19, tallying a save percentage of 90.1 percent and a goals against average of 2.59.
Smith is a mediocre, old, goaltender who probably won't solidify the net as much as anyone would like. Still, Smith was playing in behind a Coyotes team that was leaving him responsible for backstopping the team to just about any win they may have gotten last season.
