11:29 AM ET 01.29 | Phoenix Coyotes goaltender Mike Smith has been placed on the injured reserve list retroactive to Jan. 23 due to a groin injury suffered prior to the team's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets. Despite the injury, Smith managed to play 11 minutes and make four saves before leaving the game. While he will be eligible to return to game action on Wednesday night against the Edmonton Oilers, it is not believed that Smith will be ready by that time as he rejoined on-ice activity on Monday. Phoenix is 2-2 since Smith suffered the injury. American Hockey League call-up Chad Johnson recorded a shutout in Monday night's game against the Nashville Predators, while Smith's back-up Jason LaBarbera has compiled a 1-2 record since the injury.

I'm sure they are ok with that. Too bad for Mike Smith...., but they won 4-0 without their #1.......again I say the defence in phoenix is underrated.

They put in this kid Chad Johnson who had six NHL games under his belt and threw a shutout last night. Now he's thinking of changing his name to 'Ochocinco'

it would be really funny if he wore number 85.

The League owns the Team anyways , so maybe one of the other teams can just donate a starting goalie to them.

We'll see..... I am tired of hearing about the teams financial woes! Enough now! Move me to Quebec already, and watch a team get proper support.

Blankets, boxes and a two wheel hand truck are extra.
