    Red Wings' Brendan Smith: Rare two-point night

    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.

    Red Wings' Brendan Smith: Plays key role in win over Predators

    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.
