  • Predators' Craig Smith: More consistent this season

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/14/18) Smith snapped a three-game pointless stretch with an assist in Tuesday's overtime win over the Blues.

    Now with 31 points in 54 games, Smith is on pace to crack the 40-point mark for the first time in three seasons. Historically a very streaky player, Smith has not been held off the scoresheet for more than three games at any point in the current campaign. This marks a significant improvement in his game-to-game consistency, something fantasy owners should be taking advantage of.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Struggling since mid-December

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/27/18) Smith entered the All-Star break with just four points in his last 13 games.

    Smith had been enjoying a very good start to the season with 22 points in his first 33 games. However, ever since sitting out a game against the Hurricanes on Dec. 19 due to a lower-body injury, the 28-year-old winger has really been struggling offensively, which leads us to wonder whether he's still suffering the effects of the injury from that one-game absence. The good news is, the Preds don't play again until Tuesday (at home against the Blackhawks), so hopefully a few days of extra rest will do Smith some good. Monitor his return to the ice carefully, and don't be afraid to sit him if his offensive struggles continue.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Skating in Saturday's game

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/23/17) Smith (lower body) will play Saturday against the Stars, Adam Vingan of The Tennessean reports.

    Smith missed Thursday's game due to this lower-body issue, but it won't keep him out any longer. The 28-year-old winger continues to shine this season, racking up 12 goals and 10 assists through 33 games, including eight points with the man advantage.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Out Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/21/17) Smith (lower body) won't play Thursday against the Hurricanes.

    The severity of Smith's lower-body ailment remains unclear, but he'll have to wait for Saturday's match in Dallas for his next chance to taste game action. It's a big loss for the Predators, as he's been excellent lately, notching one goal and five points in his last four games. Scott Hartnell will skate in Smith's spot on Nashville's second line against Carolina.

    Predators' Craig Smith: Notches three points

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (12/14/17) Smith scored a goal and added two helpers in a 7-1 win over the Canucks on Wednesday.

    Oddly, in his last four games Smith has notched two three-point outbursts. He has 20 points in 30 games this year, which is significant considering he only had 29 all of last season.
