Flames trade for goalie Mike Smith prior to trade freeze

In order to swing this deal, the Coyotes agreed to retain 25 percent of Smith's salary. The deal was originally reported by Elliotte Friedman without details and was later confirmed by Bob McMcKenzie to be awaiting the trade call confirmation. Smith's cap hit is $5.67 million for two more seasons where Elliott's cap hit this season was $2.5 million. Smith compiled a 2.92 goals against average with a.914 save percentage while going 19-26-9 in 55 games last season and joins the Flames as a 35-year-old veteran.

The Flames had a need between the pipes as Brian Elliott, last season's starter, was set to become an unrestricted free agent. Elliott was coming off a.930 season and had led the Blues into the third round at the time of his acquisition, but could never recover from a miserable start to his tenure with the Flames and saw his numbers plummet to.910.

According to a press release from the team, defenseman Brandon Hickey, goaltender Chad Johnson will join the organization in exchange for goaltender Mike Smith.

Meanwhile, the Flames registered 94 points but were swept in the first round of the postseason by the Anaheim Ducks. Treliving was a member of Don Maloney's staff when the former Coyotes general manager signed Smith to his current deal, which now has two years remaining.

"The 6'4", 215lbs. goaltender has played 474 career National Hockey League games posting a 2.70 GAA and a.913 save percentage. He was in the net for 67 games and went 38-18-10, posting a career-high save percentage of 93 percent and a career-best goals against average of 2.21. Smith had been with the Coyotes for the past six seasons and helped them reach the 2012 Western Conference final.
