Smith signed a two-year contract with the Red Wings on Tuesday. Smith spent the majority of the 2020-21 season in the minors, picking up nine goals, 15 points and 54 PIM in 25 games, but he also drew into 16 contests with the big club, picking up four points over that span. He'll likely have a similar role in 2021-22, so don't expect Smith to emerge as a viable fantasy option.
Smith was reassigned to AHL Grand Rapids on Sunday. Smith split time between the NHL and AHL levels fairly evenly this season, scoring a combined 16 points with 59 PIM in 37 games. The 23-year-old winger is a restricted free agent this offseason and will likely enter training camp next season as a depth forward option once again.

Although Smith's been added to Detroit's active roster, he's expected to sit as a healthy scratch for Friday's game versus the Blue Jackets. He's picked up four points through 15 NHL appearances this season.
