  • Red Wings' Brendan Smith: Rare two-point night
    By RotoWire Staff

    Smith's two assists Saturday snapped an eight-game point drought. He now has 12 points, including nine assists, in 40 games this season. Once upon a time, Smith was supposed to become the next great offensive defender in the Detroit system. But the soon-to-be 27-year-old has never delivered more than 19 points in a season. Smith is a low maintenance option on the Wings' blue line, but you shouldn't count on him for scoring.

  • Smith opened the scoring and assisted on Luke Glendening's game-winning goal Saturday against Nashville. A very active night for the rearguard, who fired three shots on goal, dished out four hits and blocked three shots. With just seven points on the season, the 26-year-old isn't known for his offense , but he's got a goal and three assists in his last four games on a Red Wings team sitting third in the Eastern Conference. The former 12-goal-scorer in the AHL could be worth looking at in some very deep leagues.

  • Smith tallied his third assist of the season in a 4-3 shootout loss to Vancouver. Smith was projected as an offense-first defenseman coming out of college, but that has never really translated in the NHL. He has four points in 24 contests this season and has never scored more than 19 in a year.

  • Smith will be in the lineup Tuesday night against the visiting Sabres, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports. Smith is healthy, but received a DNP for Sunday's game against the Panthers. Wings bench boss Jeff Blashill likes to rotate players on his bottom defensive unit, and according to the report, it's Jakub Kindl's turn to draw out of the lineup Tuesday.
