NEW DETAILS EMERGE ON THE MIKE SMITH SITUATION IN EDMONTON

Friday afternoon, it was announced that Oilers goaltender Mike Smith would miss several weeks due to an injury. According to Chris Johnston of Sportsnet, the Oilers have now placed Smith on long-term injured reserve, and he will miss, at minimum, the next 24 days, or 10 games. With Stuart Skinner being recalled on an emergency basis, Edmonton has also recalled goaltender Olivier Rodrigue from Austria, and he will join their Taxi Squad following a mandatory 14-day quarantine period.

No one had said exactly what is wrong with Smith. The 38-year-old was drafted in the fifth round, 161st overall by the Dallas Stars in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. He's spent parts of 14 seasons in the NHL playing for the Dallas Stars, Tampa Bay Lightning, Phoenix/Arizona Coyotes, Calgary Flames, and Edmonton Oilers.

In 610 regular season games, Smith has a record of 262 wins, 248 losses, 74 overtime/shootout losses, a 2.71 G.A.A., a .911 save percentage, and 39 shutouts. In 25 career playoff games, he has 11 wins, 13 losses, a 2.33 G.A.A., a .934 save percentage, and 4 shutouts.
