NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -The Nashville Predators signed goaltender Jeremy Smith to an entry-level contract on Wednesday.
Smith was among the Ontario Hockey League leaders in save percentage and shutouts in his second full season with the Plymouth Whalers.
As a rookie in 2006-07, Smith helped lead Plymouth to the OHL Championship and shared the Dave Pinkney Trophy for the best team goals-against average.
He was Nashville's second-round pick in the draft.
