The Arizona Coyotes traded goalie Mike Smith to the Calgary Flames in exchange for the rights to goalie Chad Johnson, defenseman Brandon Hickey and a 2018 first-round draft pick that could be a second-rounder if the Flames reach the playoffs, according to Sarah McLellan of AZCentral. 

Smith, 35, has two years remaining on his six-year, $34 million contract. The Coyotes will reportedly retain 25% of Smith's salary, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.

Smith is coming off a season in which he posted a .914 save percentage.
