The Dearborn native and netminder for the Bridgeport Sound Tigers was named the CCM/AHL Goaltender of the Month on Wednesday.
Smith, a 29-year old former second-round pick of Nashville (2007), posted a sparkling .931 save percentage, 2.12 goals-against average and 6-1-0 record in December. He has made a total of 18 appearances for Bridgeport this season, posting a 11-5-1 record, 2.62 GAA and .909 save percentage.
The 10th-year pro has played a total of 313 games in the AHL with Bridgeport, Charlotte, San Antonio, Iowa, Providence, Springfield and Milwaukee, compiling a record of 156-116-22 with a 2.46 GAA, a .915 save percentage and 13 shutouts.
