    Coyotes' Mike Smith: Short skating session Tuesday

    Smith (lower body) was able to skate in pads for 15 minutes Tuesday, per Coyotes coach Dave Tippet, causing reporter Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic to conclude that the situation is "still status quo." Recall that Smith went under the knife on Dec. 15 to repair a core muscle injury, at which point he was given a recovery timetable of 8-to-10 weeks. Based on this latest report, it appears that nothing has changed with his rehab or expected return date. He's bound to return in mid-February assuming the timetable stays unchanged. Smith's ailment has opened the door for rookie netminder Louis Domingue to pick up significant minutes between the pipes, and he's done well based on a 6-2-2 record and 2.06 GAA in eight starts and 10 total showings.

    Coyotes' Mike Smith: Out 8-to-10 weeks

    Smith underwent surgery Tuesday morning to correct a core muscle injury that will consequently keep him out for 8-to-10 weeks, Sarah McLellan of the Arizona Republic reports. A core muscle injury is more commonly known as a sports hernia. Anders Lindback was working as the regular backup goalie for the Coyotes and presumably will assume the starting role now that Smith is out for an extended period of time. Meanwhile, It will be interesting to see if the Desert Dogs promote a goalie from the minors to back up Lindback. Of course, they could opt to trade for a backstop as well. The Ducks waived goalie Anton Khudobin and he cleared Tuesday, but the Coyotes apparently didn't put a claim in for his services.

    Coyotes' Mike Smith: Placed on injured reserve

    Smith (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Craig Morgan of the Arizona Republic reports. With Smith's stint backdated to Dec. 9, he will be eligible to return for the Coyotes' game against Columbus on Thursday, but it's uncertain if he will be ready by then. The 33-year-old has dropped four straight decisions, allowing a total of 14 goals on 104 shots in those games.

    Coyotes' Mike Smith: Won't play Saturday

    Smith (lower body) won't be in net Saturday against the Hurricanes. Smith is still dealing with a lower-body ailment, and will miss a second-consecutive game Saturday as a result. Anders Lindback played well in Smith's absence Friday against Minnesota, surrendering one goal on 28 shots, and could receive the starting nod for Saturdy's matchup with Carolina as well. If the Yotes want to avoid giving Lindback back-to-back starts, Louis Domingue will protect Arizona's net in Saturday's tilt. Smith's next chance to return to action will come Thursday against the Blue Jackets.

    Coyotes' Mike Smith: Out with lower body injury

    Smith will miss Friday's game against Minnesota with a lower body injury, Dave Vest of NHL.com reports.

    Coyotes' Mike Smith: Makes 18 saves in loss

    Smith stopped 18 of 21 shots in Tuesday's loss to the Blues. That's the fourth straight loss for Smith, who is struggling after a stretch in which he won five of six games. The 33-year-old has been beaten for at least three goals in each of those four losses, dropping his save percentage to .901 on the season. His 10-9-1 record is okay, as he plays almost every game, but if you're looking for consistency, Smith has been too hit-and-miss.

    Coyotes' Mike Smith: Starting Tuesday against St. Louis

    Smith will be between the pipes in Tuesday's game against the Blues. Smith will look to get back on track after dropping his last three starts. The 33-year-old veteran hasn't had much success against the Blues in his career, compiling a 4-10-0 record while giving up an average of 3.51 goals per contest. The Blues have struggled a bit of late as well, dropping their last three games.

    Coyotes' Mike Smith: Likely to start Tuesday

    Smith is expected to start Tuesday against the Blues. While losing the past three games Smith has allowed 3.66 goals per game, however, he has already strung together two three-game win streaks this year. If he starts, he will look to bounce back against a formidable Blues team that currently ranks second in the central division.

    Coyotes' Mike Smith: Drops third straight Friday

    Smith lost for the third start in a row Friday, allowing four goals on 27 shots as the Coyotes fell 5-2 to the Sabres. The fifth goal was an empty-netter. Smith has had a volatile couple of weeks, dropping three straight after stringing together three consecutive wins against Montreal, Anaheim and Calgary. Surprisingly, the 33-year-old is still above .500 with a 10-8-1 record to go with a disappointing .903 save percentage and brutal 3.06 GAA.

    Coyotes' Mike Smith: Starting Friday

    Smith will start Friday's contest in Buffalo, Joe Yerdon of NHL.com reports. Smith will start one day after being yanked from Thursday's game with Detroit, in which he allowed three goals in the first period. After winning the World Championship with Canada this offseason, Smith expressed that he had regained his confidence and was looking forward to putting together a bounce-back season. It hasn't worked out that way for Smith to this point, having only slightly improved his 2014-15 stats (3.16 goals against average, .904 save percentage versus 3.00 goals against average, .905 save percentage). Smith should be rested after getting a two-period break on Thursday, and will take on a Buffalo team that scores only 2.28 goals per game.
