Smith posted three assists with a plus-3 rating in Saturday's 7-2 victory against the Sharks. Smith has caught fire over the past three games, posting six assists with a plus-8 rating. He is showing some signs of life down the stretch for the red-hot Predators, but Smith is nothing more than a plug-and-play option in deeper seasonal pools at this point.
Smith posted a pair of assists with a plus-2 rating in Monday's 3-1 win against the Coyotes. Smith hasn't scored a goal in the past 22 games, and he has just four helpers during that stretch. However, three of those assists have come over the past three games. He's showing some signs of life, but Smith remains nothing more than a low-end fantasy option until he regains his scoring touch.
Smith (undisclosed) is on the ice for pregame warmups and will play in Monday's matchup with the Coyotes. Smith sat out the team's previous game Saturday (also against Arizona) with the unspecified issue, but appears to be no worse for wear and will assume his role on the second line. That said, it's been arguably his worst season as a pro with just nine goals and nine assists in 68 games, so his return to the lineup shouldn't be all that groundbreaking from a fantasy standpoint.
Smtih (undisclosed) is expected to suit up for Monday's clash with Arizona. Smith missed Saturday's outing -- also against the Yotes -- with this undisclosed ailment but appears to be ready to return. Fellow winger P.A. Parenteau figures to be a healthy scratch assuming Smith remains on track to play during pregame warmups. The 27-year-old has been on quite the skid of late, as he has failed to register a goal in his last 21 contests and has garnered a paltry two assists over that stretch. It seems the Madison, Wisconsin native's streak of three consecutive 30-plus point seasons is in serious jeopardy this year.
Smith (undisclosed) was scratched for Saturday's game against the Coyotes, Adam Vingan of The Tennesseean reports. At this moment, it is unknown why Smith was scratched, though his absence won't be too significant for the Predators. He was already listed as the fifth right wing on their depth chart, and he only has nine goals and nine assists in 68 games this season.
