Jeremy Smith (born April 13, 1989) is an American professional ice hockey goaltender. He is currently playing under contract with the Colorado Avalanche of the National Hockey League (NHL). Smith was selected in the second round, 54th overall, by the Nashville Predators in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing career[edit]

Since turning professional in the 2009–10 season, Smith, while within the Predators organization, was shuffled between the Milwaukee Admirals of the AHL and the Cincinnati Cyclones of the ECHL.[1][2]

On July 5, 2013, Smith signed a one-year contract as a free agent with the Columbus Blue Jackets.[3] After attending the Blue Jackets training camp he was assigned to AHL affiliate, the Springfield Falcons.

On July 2, 2014, Smith signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Boston Bruins.[4] Smith was sent down to Providence Bruins to be a call up along with Malcolm Subban for the majority of the season.

On July 1, 2015 the Boston Bruins re-signed Smith to a one-year, two way contract.[5] With Smith unable to earn the backup role and with the Bruins suffering a surplus of goaltenders in their system, he was assigned on loan to AHL affiliate club of the Minnesota Wild, the Iowa Wild, for the duration of the 2015–16 season on October 6, 2015. [6] On February 6, 2016, Providence's Malcolm Subban was hospitalized after taking a puck to the throat. With Subban ruled out for 8 weeks due to this injury, Smith was recalled from his loan with Iowa Wild to provide Providence cover.

At the conclusion of the season, Smith left the Bruins organization as a free agent. On July 1, 2016, he signed a one-year, two-way contract to join the Colorado Avalanche.[7]
