    Islanders Agree To Terms With Goaltender Jeremy Smith

    Smith signs two-way (NHL/AHL) contract for the remainder of 2018-19.

    The New York Islanders announced today that goaltender Jeremy Smith has agreed to terms on a two-way (NHL/AHL) contract for the remainder of 2018-19.

    Smith, 29, has played 32 games this season for the Islanders' American Hockey League affiliate, the Bridgeport Sound Tigers. He is tied for the team lead in wins (16-9-1) and has recorded a 2.92 goals-against-average and .900 save percentage. He was named the CCM/AHL Goaltender of the Month for December after going 6-1-0 with a 2.12 goals-against-average and .931 save percentage in seven starts.

    I don't know the reason for this, unless it's to reward him? Seems unlikely we'd trade a goalie right now.

    EDIT: Maybe just to make sure we have goaltending depth for the playoffs? That's the safest thing I could come up with.

    The Islanders announce they've signed G Jeremy Smith, who was on an AHL contract, to an NHL deal for the rest of the year.

    Believe Smith needs waivers to officially come back to Bridgeport, which would explain Buitenhuis.

    This is more procedural than anything. You'll see a few others of these today. Gets him on the NHL reserve list; readily playoff-eligible, call-ups/send-downs easily.

        As Fornabaio said, it's for playoff roster. These things happen a lot at the deadline. I bet even Toews will be papered to Bridgeport on Monday.

          Looks like we were not unique.
