Flames goaltender Mike Smith ‘thrilled’ to be joining Calgary

Eleven seasons in the NHL and goaltender Mike Smith is finally getting his chance to play in a Canadian market.

And he couldn’t be happier.

The Kingston, Ont., native was on Tim and Sid Monday, where he expressed his excitement at joining the Calgary Flames.

“I’m thrilled to be a part of the Calgary organization now,” he said of the deal that brought him over from the Arizona Coyotes.

Playing for the Flames will bring about a whole new set of expectations and attention that Smith didn’t get in Arizona, something the netminder is looking forward to.

“It’s going to be a change but I think I’m excited about that opportunity,” he said. “I’m really excited about being able to have a chance to play in Canada before my career is over.”
