Ladislav Smid: Will play in Czech Republic next season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smid (neck) has signed on to play with Liberec of the Czech Extraliga next season, thus ending his tenure with the Flames, Darren Haynes of the Canadian Press reports.

Smid was set to become an unrestricted free agent this offseason, and with his injury history, it's entirely likely that Calgary would not have wanted to take a chance on him. The 31-year-old blueliner showed promise early in his career, but found it difficult to stay healthy later on and never quite lived up to the potential that many saw in him. A return to the NHL could be in the cards if he can turn in some good, healthy seasons in his native Czech Republic, but we wouldn't count on it.

Flames' Ladislav Smid: Recovery apparently going well
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

While Smid (neck) is still expected to miss the entire 2016-17 campaign, the defenseman said he is working out almost every day, adding, "Because I'm not taking any contact, I don't really feel any pain anymore."

Smid's 2014-15 campaign came to an end when he was on the receiving end of a high hit from Simon Despres -- who was with the Penguins at the time -- that required he go under the knife, and then Smid encountered a setback last season upon getting hit by Jason Zucker in a game against the Wild -- the 30-year-old Smid hasn't played since leaving that Feb. 17 contest. Hopefully, the veteran can continue to progress and be out there for the 2017-18 campaign, though it's worth noting that he'll be an unrestricted free agent in July.

Flames' Ladislav Smid: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smid (neck) has been designated for injured reserve according to the NHL's official media site.

Smid will not suit up at all this season as a result of this lingering neck ailment. The defenseman could be placed on long-term injured reserve later in the season in order to provide the Flames with some salary cap relief. Regardless of the technical designation, fantasy owners may want to bail on the 30-year-old given his uncertain future.

Flames' Ladislav Smid: Out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smid will miss the 2016-17 season due to his neck injury.

Smid wasn't productive last season, posting no points with a minus-7 rating. This neck problem has been bothering him for years, so hopefully he can take this season to make a full recovery and we'll see him return to form next fall.

Flames' Ladislav Smid: Neck issue still lingering
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smid (neck) was included in a list of players not ready for on-ice activity Friday in training camp, Aaron Vickers of NHL.com reports.

Smid has been bothered by neck injuries the past two seasons and it appears the issue has lingered through the offseason as he's not ready for full-participation activities in training camp. He still has several weeks before Calgary's first regular season game against the Oilers on Oct. 12 but his status for preseason and Opening Night appears highly questionable.

Flames' Ladislav Smid: One year left on contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smid (neck) was limited to just 22 games in 2015-16 due to a recurring neck injury.

Over two seasons with Calgary, he's played in a total of only 53 games, recording exactly one point, and the neck issues that have dogged him over that time certainly haven't helped. He's got one year left on the four-year extension he signed in 2013, though, and it doesn't seem likely that the Flames will find a trade partner willing to take Smid on, so assuming the issue resolves itself over the offseason, he'll be back with them next year.

Flames' Ladislav Smid: Lands on IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smid has been placed on injured reserve, according to the NHL's official media site. Roger Millions of Sportsnet said the defenseman is dealing with an upper-body injury.

Smid was limited to 5:05 of ice time Wednesday in a game against the Wild, suggesting that he sustained the injury in that contest. He'll be eligible to return Feb. 25, and in the meantime, the Flames have called up Tyler Wotherspoon from AHL Stockton.

Flames' Ladislav Smid: Will play Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smid will be in the lineup Tuesday night against the Devils.

This will be Smid's first appearance since Jan. 5, following time in the minors on a conditioning assignment. He won't help you much offensively, but Smid is averaging 9.5 hits per 60 minutes of play and that's where his value lies.

Flames' Ladislav Smid: Sent to AHL for conditioning
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smid has been sent to AHL Stockton on a conditioning assignment, Mark Spector of Sportsnet reports.

Smid has only drawn into four games with the Flames this season, averaging 9:55 TOI over that span. Perhaps the conditioning assignment will prove effective and allow him to return to the parent club sooner than later, but we can't see him producing much in the way of offense given that he's only mustered 72 points in 565 career games between the Oilers and Flames.

Flames' Ladislav Smid: Blocks four shots in victory
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smid blocked four shots and had one hit in a 3-2 overtime victory against Detroit on Friday.

Smid looked no worse for the wear after not playing for nine months with a neck injury, placing himself in harm's way on multiple occasions. He's a reliable defenseman for Calgary, albeit not a high-scoring one with 13 points over his last three seasons.

Flames' Ladislav Smid: Will return to action Friday against Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smid (neck) will suit up for Friday's tilt against the Red Wings, Roger Millions of Sportsnet reports.

Smid hasn't played in an NHL game in over nine months, so he will definitely have some rust to shake off in the early goings of Friday's contest. He's expected to be paired with Dougie Hamilton on Friday, which should help Smid feel comfortable in his return to game action.

Flames' Ladislav Smid: Expected to return Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smid (neck) is expected to return to the lineup Friday, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.

Smid returned to practice with the team Wednesday, indicating a return to the lineup could be on the horizon. That continues to appear the case, as he should now return to the lineup Friday. He remains on injured reserve at this point, but the Flames still have until Friday to activate him.

Flames' Ladislav Smid: Back practicing with team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smid (neck) is practicing with the team again and is nearing a return, Kristen Odland of the Calgary Herald reports.

Smid has yet to play this year, but the Flames could certainly use all hands on deck after a rough 1-4 start. He may be available for the weekend but is unlikely to play Tuesday.

Flames D Ladislav Smid skates with teammates on Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Flames defenseman Ladislav Smid traveled with teammates to Vancouver and was skating on the ice, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.

Smid is still marked as being on Injured Reserve by the Flames. However, the 29 year old defenseman may return sooner than expected. No need to grab him off a free agency list just yet as Smid has yet to produce a season with more than 15 points in his six year NHL career.

Opens season on Injured Reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smid (neck) opens the season on injury reserve, TSN reports.Smid was cleared for contact earlier this week, but he will still need to practice for a while before he is ready for game action.

Flames' Smid Cleared For Contact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smid was cleared for full contact on Monday, Derek Wills of Sportsnet 960 reports.It's a huge step forward for Smid in his recovery, as the 29-year-old has yet to take any contact since he underwent surgery on his neck to repair a damaged vertebrae in January. It remains to be seen if the veteran defender will be ready for the Flames' season opener on Oct. 7, but Monday's development is certainly a step in the right direction.

Flames' Smid Hasn't Been Cleared For Contact
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smid has yet to be cleared for contact, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.Smid's 2014-15 season came to a premature end in January after he underwent surgery on his neck to repair a damaged vertebrae. He was expected to compete with Deryk Engelland for a spot as the Flames' sixth defenseman in training camp, but that expectation appears to be a long shot now that he likely won't be cleared for contact until mid-October. The Flames should provide an update on the veteran defenders' status in the coming weeks.

The Flames' front office believes Smid (neck) will be ready to skate during the team's first on-ice session at training camp in September, the Calgary Sun reports.Smid's season came to an end last January when he required surgery on his neck, but his communication with the Flames to this point in the offseason suggests he has recovered well from the procedure. If healthy, Smid will compete in camp with Deryk Engelland for a spot as Calgary's sixth defenseman.
