  • Anaheim Sends Smaby To AHL

    News: Matt Smaby was assigned to the AHL on Friday, reports.

    News: Matt Smaby will miss the next 2-to-3 months with a torn ligament in his right thumb, the Post-Standard reports.
    Analysis: Matt Smaby will undergo surgery on his thumb soon to repair the torn ligament. He's on the Ducks to provide defensive depth, but with just six career points in 122 NHL games, his fantasy utility is limited to PIMs, of which he has recorded 106 in that span.
  • Smaby Signs With Ducks

    News: The Ducks have signed Smaby to a one-year contract, the team's official site reports.
    Analysis: The 6-5, 222-pound Smaby adds some size and depth to the Anaheim blue line, but with just six career points in 122 NHL games, his fantasy utility is limited to PIMs, of which he has recorded 106 in that span.
  • Tampa's Smaby Hurting

    News: Smaby (leg) did not skate Wednesday, the Tampa Tribune reports.
    Analysis: It's not clear whether that's what kept Smaby out of Wednesday's Game 1 loss against Pittsburgh. He's not likely to be much of a factor, either way.
  • Bolts' Smaby Returns To Action

    News: Smaby (illness) played six minutes in Friday's win over New Jersey.
    Analysis: Smaby had been battling an illness and hadn't played since Feb. 12. He's better now, but he's still just a depth defenseman for the Lightning with no points this season.
  • Bolts' Smaby Sits Tuesday With Illness

    News: Smaby (illness) was forced to miss Tuesday's game against the Flyers.
    Analysis: The defenseman is day-to-day.
  • Bolts' Smaby Out Sick

    News: Smaby has an illness and won't play Tuesday against the Flyers, according to the Lightning's Official Twitter Feed.
    Analysis: This normally wouldn't be a huge deal with a depth defenseman out, but the Bolts are getting a little thinner on the blue line with Smaby sick and Mike Lundin on IR with an abdominal injury. Playing against the high-powered Flyers, they may feel it a bit on the blue line in this one.
  • Bolts' Smaby Ready For Saturday

    News: Smaby said he will be ready to play Saturday after leaving Tuesday's game during his second shift following a hit on Buffalo's Tyler Ennis, The Tampa Tribune reports.
    Analysis: Fellow defenseman Mike Lundin isn't so lucky on the injury front so Smaby will be getting some playing time in the near future. He's got just six points in 115 NHL games so offense is certainly not going to be found with Smaby, but he's a decent source of penalty minutes and hits.
  • Bolts Lose Smaby to Injury

    News: Smaby left Tuesday's game with a mid-body injury, reports the Associated Press.
    Analysis: He played a whopping 57 seconds before going down. He remains without a point this season (25 games) and he's not racking up PIMs, either. We find it hard to believe he might have any fantasy value at all.
