Smith (undisclosed) didn't play in Thursday's preseason game versus the Penguins due to a minor injury, Helene St. James of the Detroit Free Press reports.

It doesn't sound like Smith will be sidelined for long with the injury. The 23-year-old winger figures to have a chance for a bottom-six job this season. The Red Wings' last preseason game is Saturday versus the Sabres, but it's unclear if Smith will participate in that one.
