The Edmonton Oilers have re-signed veteran goaltender Mike Smith to a two-year deal, general manager Ken Holland confirmed Thursday.

The contract will carry an average annual value of $2.2 million, according to TSN's Pierre LeBrun.

At 39 years old, the resurgent Smith pitched a .923 save percentage across 32 games in the 2020-21 regular season, the second-best mark of his career. He was eighth in the league in goals saved above average (12.56) and goals saved above expected (7.22), according to Evolving Hockey.

Despite being swept by the Winnipeg Jets in the first round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Smith registered a .912 save percentage.
