  • Rangers' Brendan Smith: Left available for expansion draft

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/20/17) Smith is among the Rangers players left unprotected ahead of Wednesday's expansion draft.

    Smith's arrival in New York during this past season gave the Rangers an additional body -- and some chippy play -- on defense, but he didn't enjoy much of an uptick offensively, managing four points in 18 regular-season games and then another four (all assists) in 12 playoff contests. That in mind, Smith probably isn't the most attractive candidate for Vegas to select among the Rangers' unprotected players, particularly considering that he'll be an unrestricted free agent come July 1. Smith has, however, expressed interest in staying in New York, where his style of play fits pretty well.

    Rangers' Brendan Smith: Leads team in Game 4 ice time

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/18/17) Smith led all Rangers in ice time with 22:44 in Tuesday's 2-1 Game 4 victory over Montreal. He failed to record a shot or a point, but he did dish out three hits and go plus-1.

    Smith's line score also shows four giveaways, so it wasn't exactly an impressive performance, but he also had to deal with some extremely physical -- perhaps line-crossing -- play by the Habs that went unpenalized, especially in the third period. That's playoff hockey, though. The 28-year-old Smith doesn't seem like he's ever going to realize the offensive upside he flashed in college and the AHL, but he's grown into an important piece of the Rangers' blue line since coming over at the trade deadline.

    Rangers' Brendan Smith: Posts pair of helpers in Friday's loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/18/17) Smith managed two assists, a plus-1 rating and a blocked shot in Friday's 4-3 shootout loss against the Panthers.

    The points were Smith's first in eight games in a Rangers uniform. Smith is a stay-at-home defenseman who rarely finds his name onto the scoresheet, so don't get terribly excited about this performance. He still has just seven points overall this season, and his career best was 19 points in 2013-14. Avoid him in all but the deepest of fantasy pools.

    Rangers' Brendan Smith: Shipped to New York

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/28/17) Smith was traded to the Rangers on Tuesday, with second- and third-round picks moving the other way to Detroit, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.

    The former Wisconsin Badger had increasingly been the subject of trade talks in recent days, with many teams rumored to be interested. Smith can play both the left and right side, so he'll provide the Rangers with some much-needed depth on the blue line. As for his fantasy value, Smith has demonstrated some offensive potential in the past, but he has only five points in 33 games this season.

    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.
