Smith was removed from COVID-19 protocols Monday.

Smith should be ready to rock for Wednesday's road tilt versus the Islanders. He had been on non-roster IR, but the gritty winger evidently logged a pair of negative COVID-19 tests within a 24-hour window to obtain clearance for the upcoming contest. Smith has two goals, two assists, 15 blocked shots and 39 hits through 24 games.
