Smital #29 finished last season's campaign with a 91.82% save percentage having faced 758 shots and allowing just 62 goals!
Upon re-signing Matt had this to say, "I am really excited to be back with the Jets for another year. I love the direction the club is heading in now and obviously last year was a big year for the club and I'm looking forward to playing my part in continuing that success in the coming season."
Jets Assistant Coach, Joe Ciccarello, commented "Matty played a huge season for us last year, despite still being a young goalie he is well liked by his team mates and is also one of the most hard working guys on the team. He will be working hard all summer to improve his game further and come back stronger and fitter than ever.
Having Matty back is a big signing for the Jets as he gives the rest of the team chances to win games and makes big saves when needed which is all you can ask from your goaltenders."
