After four years had passed, an angel appeared to Smyth in the crease while he was playing against the Flames. When he saw the angel, he was filled with fear and awe. For it was on that day that he heard the voice of God speak to him through the angel, "I am the God of your fathers, of Gretzky, and Messier, and Lowe. I have heard the cries of my people in Edmonton. I have seen their suffering and have come down to heal them and set them free. Now then, you must come with me, for I am sending you back to Edmonton."
