  • Rangers' Brendan Smith: Set for rare appearance Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11/16/17) After watching the past six games from the press box, Smith will be in the lineup against the Blue Jackets on Friday.

    The phrase 'healthy scratch' generally is considered cringeworthy in the fantasy realm, as there's no sense wasting a roster spot on a guy who barely plays, but then again, Smith could use this next contest as motivation to show the Blueshirts and fantasy owners alike what they'd been missing. He's added two assists with a plus-2 rating over 11 games this season.

    Rangers' Brendan Smith: Leading team in rating

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (10/27/17) Smith failed to get on the scoresheet in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Coyotes, but did contribute a plus-3 rating and two shots on goal.

    While Smith's been a nonfactor offensively with just two assists in nine games, his plus-3 rating is tied for best on the team. Smith's never topped 20 points in a season, but his 318 penalty minutes in 318 career games give the former Red Wings blueliner a niche role in deeper formats.

    Rangers' Brendan Smith: Pens four-year deal

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/28/17) Smith re-signed with the Rangers on a four-year, $17.4 million contract Wednesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

    Acquired via trade during the 2016-17 campaign, Smith was likely one of New York's priorities heading into free agency, as he quickly became a valuable contributor on Broadway. The 28-year-old is unlikely to offer much in terms of offensive production -- he registered a mere nine points last year -- but he'll be vital to the Rangers' success, as he eats up significant ice time (20:10 per game) while contributing tough defense and penalty killing.

    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.
