  • Red Wings' Brendan Smith: Comes off IR

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/4/17) Smith (knee) was activated from injured reserve Saturday.

    Smith has pitched in five points (two goals, three assists) in 24 games this season, as well as 33 hits and 24 blocked shots. He's a no-frills blueliner, but obviously held in higher regard than Alexey Marchenko, who the Red Wings waived -- he ended up getting claimed by Toronto -- in order to pave the way for Smith's return.

    Red Wings' Brendan Smith: May return Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/2/17) Smith (knee) could return Saturday night versus the Islanders.

    Primarily a stay-at-home defender, Smith has missed the past 12 games with his sprained knee, but this latest report notes that coach Jeff Blashill has been pleased with how he's progressing. The Red Wings need all the help they can get on the blue line, as goalies Petr Mrazek and Jared Coreau have a combined save percentage of .897 this season, while starter Jimmy Howard (knee) is being eased back into the mix.

    Red Wings' Brendan Smith: Could return this weekend

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/31/17) Smith (knee) has effectively been ruled out for Tuesday's home game against the Devils. Ansar Khan of MLive.com relayed from coach Jeff Blashill that the defenseman is expected to return at some point this weekend.

    The struggling Wings will welcome the Islanders to Joe Louis Arena on Friday and then travel to Nashville for Saturday's tilt against the Predators -- based on the latest comments from the bench boss, it appears that Smith could be in the mix for at least one of those games. It seems like eons ago that Detroit had everyone healthy on the blue line at the same time, but that could very well be the case once Smith is fit to return. With that said, GM Ken Holland may be forced trim the fat to stay within the 23-man roster limit.

    Red Wings' Brendan Smith: Likely out until after All-Star weekend

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/19/17) Smith (knee) will travel to Buffalo with the Red Wings facing the Sabres on Friday, though he's still expected to be out through the All-Star break.

    This news effectively rules out Smith for the next four games before having a chance to lace up for a Jan. 31 contest opposing the Devils at home. Fortunately, this news isn't likely to cause a stir in the fantasy realm; Smith is more of a stay-at-home type of defenseman.

    Red Wings' Brendan Smith: Returns to ice ahead of practice

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/15/17) Smith (knee) skated before practice Sunday, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    Smith's missed the past five games with his knee injury, and he remains on injured reserve with fellow defenseman Niklas Kronwall. The next step in his rehab presumably is to join his teammates in practice. He's a no-frills blueliner on pace for only 13 points this season and thus carries minimal fantasy intrigue, though the Wings seemingly lack physicality when Smith's out of action.
