News: Smith will the starting goalie Sunday against the Ducks, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. Impact: Smith has been outplayed by backup Devan Dubnyk this season, and although there is no sign of an imminent goalie controversy it is not sustainable for Smith to perform this poorly without losing playing time. He already seems to be losing the trust of coach Dave Tippett, who turned to Dubnyk for the start in three of the Coyotes' previous five games.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith took his fifth consecutive loss Thursday, giving up three goals on 27 shots against the Stars. Impact: Two days after posting a respectable performance in an overtime loss to Washington, Smith got back to putting up unpleasant stat lines. At this point, Devan Dubnyk -- who's easily outplayed Smith, especially lately -- has to be getting serious consideration for some extended run in goal.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith led the Coyotes on to the ice for pregame warmups and will be in the crease Thursday against the Stars, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. Impact: Though riding a four-game losing streak, Smith was steady his last time out Tuesday against the Capitals, stopping 22 of 24 shots before falling in overtime. He'll look to get back in the win column against his former team, against whom he's posted a 7-4-5 record, 2.09 GAA and .925 save percentage over his 16 previous career outings.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith allowed two goals on 24 shots in Tuesday's overtime loss to the Capitals. Impact: Smith turned in a much-needed strong outing in this one, but failed to bring home a win for the fourth consecutive start. The strong effort will help him hold off Devan Dubnyk for No. 1 duties, but Smith will need to continue turning in solid work to prevent the Coyotes from turning to Dubnyk, who's collected half of the team's eight wins so far despite starting just five games to Smith's 14.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith will be in goal for Tuesday's game against the Capitals. Impact: Smith will look to get back on track Tuesday after losing three in a row before watching Devan Dubnyk claim victories while making the start for the Coyotes in their last two games. He will square off against a Capitals team that will enter Tuesday's game having scored just one goal in its last two games.(RotoWire, )
Fri. Nov 14, 2014
News: Smith allowed five goals on 25 shots in Thursday's loss to Calgary. Impact: Just another defeat for Smith, who looked like he was righting the ship over a five-game stretch of impressive play, but has since regressed, giving up nine goals over the last two games. The Coyotes will probably go with Devan Dubnyk on Friday in Vancouver as they play the second of a back-to-back set.(RotoWire, )

News: Smith was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and will receive the starting nod in goal Thursday against the Flames, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. Impact: Smith has paired back-to-back wins with consecutive losses over his last four turns, making it difficult for him to establish a rhythm in what has been a disappointing season overall. His 3.29 GAA and .895 save percentage over 12 games remain well below the league average, and a matchup against a Flames squad that has played much better than expected this season might not afford him a good opportunity to improve upon those numbers.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Nov 11, 2014
News: Smith allowed four goals on 32 shots in Tuesday's loss to the Stars. Impact: While wins have been hard to come by for Smith, he'd been on a roll over the last three games, giving up just five goals in total. He's not getting much offensive support either, as the 'Yotes haven't scored more than three goals for him since Oct. 15.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Nov 11, 2014
News: Smith will get the start Tuesday against Dallas, according to Craig Morgan of Fox Sports Arizona. Impact: Smith will be starting his fourth straight for the Coyotes. He's played better of late, but his overall numbers on the season (4-7-0, 3.22 GAA, .897 save percentage) remain ugly.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Nov 8, 2014
News: Smith stopped all but one of the 33 shots he faced in Saturday's loss to the Islanders. Impact: It was a great outing for Smith, but unfortunately the team's offense couldn't come through, as the Coyotes were outshot 33-19 and blanked by a 1-0 score. The good news is Smith has been playing great hockey as of late, posting an 2-1-0 record in his last three games and stopping 97 of 102 shots in that span. He's on track to play a whopping number of games this season and with the way he's been playing recently, more wins should be on the way.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Nov 8, 2014
News: Smith made a season-high 37 saves Friday in Arizona's 3-2 shootout win over Anaheim. Impact: Smith carries an awful 3.44 goals-against average this season, due entirely to his poor start. He has played better of late.(STATS, 4:38pm)
