• Loaned to AHL Iowa

    News: Jeremy Smith has been loaned by the Bruins to the Iowa Wild, Minnesota's AHL affiliate, NESN.com reports.
    Analysis: Jeremy Smith, who lost out to Jonas Gustavsson for Boston's top backup goalie job behind Tuukka Rask, cleared waivers Tuesday, which left the organization with a surplus of goalies. With Malcolm Subban and Zane McIntyre slated to share netminding duties for AHL Providence, the Bruins were able to work out an agreement with the Wild that will allow Smith to see AHL duty to start the coming season. The 26-year-old compiled a 2.05 goals against average and .933 save percentage in 39 games with Providence in 2014-15.

  • Sees action in preseason finale

    News: Jeremy Smith stopped 13 of 14 shots in 25 minutes worth of action after taking over for Tuukka Rask at the start of the third period in Friday's preseason finale, a 2-1 shootout loss to the Caps.
    Analysis: Jeremy Smith, who allowed two goals on two shots in Friday's shootout, remains in contention with Jonas Gustavsson for Bruins' top backup goalie job behind Rask, an assignment that will have to finally be handed out by the team in advance of Thursday's regular season opener against the Jets.
  • In contention for top backup job

    News: GM Don Sweeney indicated that the Bruins won't decide whether Jeremy Smith or Jonas Gustavsson will serve as Tuukka Rask's top backup until after Friday night's preseason finale against the Caps, CSN New England reports.
    Analysis: The report notes that B's plan to have Rask play the entire game Friday, so at this point it's simply down to the team's brass deliberating on which goalie to keep. While the 26-year-old Jeremy Smith -- who has yet to see regular season NHL action -- is coming off a strong AHL campaign, the 30-year-old Gustavsson has 148 NHL appearances under his belt.
  • Bruins Bring Back Smith On One-Year Deal

    News: Jeremy Smith re-signed Wednesday with the Bruins on a one-year, two-way contract.
    Analysis: Jeremy Smith has played exclusively in the AHL ranks for the last five seasons, but this might represent his best opportunity to claim a backup role in the NHL. The Bruins watched Niklas Svedberg depart for the KHL and the recently acquired Martin Jones get traded Monday, leaving the team with a vacancy behind Tuukka Rask on the depth chart. The organization may prefer top netminding prospect Malcolm Subban to play everyday in the minors, and if that's the case, Smith would be the leading candidate to back up Rask.
  • Bruins Send J. Smith To AHL

    News: The Bruins assigned Jeremy Smith to AHL Providence on Thursday.
    Analysis: Jeremy Smith's demotion following his brief recall by the Bruins essentially confirms Tuukka Rask's availability for Thursday's game against the Senators.
  • Smith Joins Bruins

    News: Per the AHL's transaction log, Jeremy Smith was recalled Tuesday by the Bruins.
    Analysis: Meanwhile, Mark Divver of the Providence Journal relayed that he is hearing that Tuukka Rask may be under the weather, so it's possible that Jeremy Smith could be called upon to suit up as a backup to Niklas Svedberg for Tuesday's game against the Sabres.
  • Bruins Reassign Smith To Minors

    News: Jeremy Smith was reassigned to AHL Providence on Saturday, Amalie Benjamin of the Boston Globe reports.
    Analysis: Jeremy Smith's demotion signals that at the very least, Tuukka Rask (illness) is fit enough to back up Niklas Svedberg for Saturday's game against the Coyotes. Smith served as the backup for Friday's win over the Devils, but didn't see any action behind Svedberg.
  • Bruins' Smith Called Up From AHL Providence

    News: Jeremy Smith was called up from AHL Providence on Friday, Joe Haggerty of CSN reports.
    Analysis: With Tuukka Rask (illness) questionable for Friday's game against the Devils, Jeremy Smith may end up serving as Niklas Svedberg's emergency backup. The Bruins have another game Saturday against the Coyotes, so there's perhaps some chance -- though not a good one -- Smith could draw a start in what figures to be a short stint with the NHL squad. While he has yet to make an NHL appearance in his career, the 25-year-old netminder does have excellent numbers for AHL Providence this season.
