News: Derek Smith was re-assigned to AHL Abbotsford on Sunday.

News: Derek Smith has been assigned to AHL Abbotsford, Sportsnet's Pat Steinberg reports.
Analysis: Derek Smith had a rather uneventful stint with the Flames, scoring one point and registering a minus-five rating over 11 games. With just 91 NHL appearances under his belt at the age of 29, Smith has minimal fantasy upside.

Flames Recall Smith From AHL

News: The Flames have recalled Derek Smith from AHL Abbottsford, Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: Derek Smith opened the season with the Flames but never actually saw the ice before heading back to the AHL a little more than a week ago. There's no word on who he is replacing but the guess is that there will be some injury news released soon.

Flames' Smith Reassigned To AHL

News: Derek Smith was reassigned to AHL Abbotsford on Sunday.

Smith To Break Camp With Flames

News: Derek Smith will open the season on the Flames' roster, Sportsnet 960's Pat Steinberg reports.
Analysis: The Flames placed Derek Smith on waivers Sunday, but it appears the move was only procedural, as they revealed Monday that he will open the season in Calgary. Smith is set to open the season as the Flames' seventh defenseman, so expect his playing time to be minimal.

Derek Smith

Flames Place Smith On Waivers

News: Derek Smith was placed on waivers by the Flames on Sunday, TSN's BobMcKenzie reports.
Analysis: While Derek Smith was healthy throughout the preseason after suffering a season-ending knee injury last April, it seems the Flames weren't fully convinced that he was the same player following the injury. If other teams are more comfortable with where he's at health-wise, perhaps he could get a look elsewhere after suiting up in 69 NHL games over the last two seasons.

Flames' Smith Back After Knee Injury

News: Derek Smith, who finished last season on IR, has been healthy throughout the preseason and was on the ice for 21:10 in the Flames' most recent game against the Islanders.
Analysis: By all accounts, the rebuilding year in Calgary is going to be a rough ride for the team's blueliners, particularly the Derek Smith-types, whose lack of offensive contributions paired with what will likely be a brutal plus-minus erase his value in the vast majority of formats.

Flames' Smith Out Indefinitely

News: Derek Smith is out indefinitely with a lower-body injury, according to the Associated Press.
Analysis: After a promising rookie campaign, Derek Smith's sophomore season has been derailed by inconsistent play, healthy scratches and now, injuries. He is likely gone for the rest of the season, as the Flames have no reason to rush him back.

Flames' Smith Gets First Point Of Season

News: Derek Smith notched his first point of the season with an assist in Sunday's 4-2 win against Vancouver.
Analysis: Derek Smith had a great rookie campaign in 2011-12 but was injured at the end of the season and hasn't been able to recapture the magic since. He's been a healthy scratch on numerous occasions this season and is still fighting for playing time.

Flames' Smith To Be Healthy Scratch Thursday

News: Derek Smith will be a healthy scratch Thursday, the Flames' official site reports.
Analysis: Derek Smith has filled in for Chris Butler the past two games, but Butler will be back in the lineup to take on the Avalanche, which means Smith will watch from the press box.

Flames' Smith Ready For Season's Start

News: Derek Smith has recovered from last season's concussion and was practicing with the team Sunday, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: Derek Smith was one of Calgary's bright spots last season, as he showed some offensive spark to go with solid defense. He does have some talent in front of him, but should settle in with the third defensive pairing.

Derek Smith

Flames' Smith Had Concussion

News: Derek Smith's upper-body injury at the end of the season was actually a concussion, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: Derek Smith was injured March 20 when he took a puck to the face and missed the rest of the season. Smith has said he still isn't feeling well and is taking it day by day, but has a lot of time to recover before next season starts. Hopefully the summer off will help out Smith, as he is a young defenseman bursting with potential.

Flames' Smith Still Out

News: Derek Smith remains out with an upper body injury and will not play Wednesday against Los Angeles, according to the Calgary Herald.
Analysis: It still has not been defined what is hindering Derek Smith, but it has to be serious if it is keeping him out during the Flames' playoff push. Clay Wilson has taken his place in the lineup the past few games.

Flames' Smith Leaves With Injury

News: Derek Smith left Thursday's game with an upper body injury and did not return, according to the Calgary Herald.

Flames' Smith Gets First Point Of New Year

News: Derek Smith tallied his first point of 2012 with an assist Sunday, helping Calgary to a much-needed 4-3 win over Minnesota.
Analysis: Derek Smith was playing quite well before being injured Dec. 29, and hasn't really found that groove since returning to the ice Feb. 23. He definitely has fantasy upside for the future, but only has a point and a minus-5 in the nine games since coming back from an ankle sprain.

Flames' Smith Could Play Thursday

News: Derek Smith (ankle) is a game-time decision for Thursday's game against the Coyotes, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: Derek Smith has sat out 22 games since suffering his injury back on Dec. 29, but he participated in the Flames' Thursday morning skate, so he has a shot to suit up Thursday.

Flames Re-Sign Smith

News: Derek Smith signed a two-year deal with the Flames Wednesday valued at $775,000 a season, the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: If he can get back healthy, this contract was a steal for the Flames. Derek Smith has proved he can play at a high level this season and should only get better.
