On July 1, 2019, Smith signed a one-year, $2 million contract to play for the Edmonton Oilers. On July 28, 2021, Mike signed a two-year extension with the Oilers.
"I love being a goalie, Kurt loves being an Agent. We're both good at what we do, so it works really well."
“Best Agent in hockey, there’s not much more than I can say than that. If you are looking for the best advice and support on and off the ice, I highly recommend KO Sports.”
