Sens' Smith Making Strides

News: Zack Smith (wrist) was a participant in Tuesday's practice, Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Zack Smith has shown improvement during his recent on-ice sessions of last, but still has a little ways to go before he's cleared to return from the dislocated wrist. The Senators don't have a clear timetable for his return just yet.

Sens' Smith Still Far Off Return

News: Zack Smith (wrist) is considered far off a return to the Ottawa lineup, TSN's Steve Lloyd reports.
Analysis: Zack Smith has been skating since about mid-January, but it's mostly been out of an effort to stay conditioned rather than in attempt to test out his dislocated wrist. Until the forward is reintroduced into practices with the team, an activation from injured reserve won't be considered.

Sens' Smith (Wrist) Continues To Skate

News: Zack Smith (wrist) has been skating over the last few days, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Zack Smith is still waiting on his dislocated wrist to heal up, so he's still probably likely to remain sidelined for at least another month longer.

Sens' Smith Out Indefinitely, Placed On IR

News: Zack Smith dislocated his wrist in Saturday's game against the Bruins and is expected to miss multiple months, the Ottawa Sun reports. The Senators have placed him on injured reserve.
Analysis: Zack Smith jammed the wrist in the second period of Saturday's contest, and an evaluation back in Ottawa showed that he'd suffered a serious injury. The Senators recalled Jean-Gabriel Pageau from AHL Binghamton to fill the roster opening, but he could struggle to replicate the tenacity Smith brings to the Sens' bottom-six unit and penalty kill.

Sens' Smith Gets First Point Of Season

News: Zack Smith picked up his first point of the season with a first-period goal against the Avalanche on Thursday.
Analysis: Valued primarily for his physicality in the Sens' bottom six, it's quite surprising that Zack Smith notched his first point before his first penalty minute. In addition to avoiding the sin bin, Smith has only four hits in four games. That's disappointing production for a player who was expected to rank among the league leaders in both categories.

Zack Smith

Sens' Smith Consistent

News: Zack Smith appeared in all 82 games this season, and finished with 13 goals and nine assists.
Analysis: While the center doesn't provide all that much offensively, he did chip in 111 PIM as well, so he does hold some fantasy value. He'll be back next season to play in the same role.

Zack Smith

Smith Solid In Sens' Loss

News: Zack Smith scored two of Ottawa's four goals in Friday's 7-4 loss to Montreal, his first goal since March 15.
Analysis: Zack Smith has just five goals in the 2014 calendar year, but he is not relied upon to be one of the big scorers in Ottawa's lineup. He has 13 goals on the season, but likely won't have too many two-goal evenings.

Zack Smith

Sens' Smith Providing Steady Play

News: Zack Smith has collected 10 goals and seven assists in 64 games to date.
Analysis: He's an everyday player for the Sens, but he holds more value as a penalty killer than a scorer. He chips in enough to be an option in the deepest leagues, but most owners should steer clear.

Zack Smith

Sens' Smith Centering Third Line

News: Zack Smith is expected to center the third line Monday against the Penguins.
Analysis: Zack Smith has been his usual dependable self all season, posting 10 goals, six assists and 63 PIM in 55 games. He also often draws some of the toughest defensive assignments on the team, and has the fourth-lowest offensive-zone start rate -- just 44 percent.

Smith Nets Goal In Sens' Win

News: Zack Smith had a goal midway through the third period of Thursday's 4-3 win against the visiting Jets.
Analysis: Although Zack Smith wasn't originally even credited with an assist, the scorekeeper later gave Smith with the goal and Marc Methot the assist. While you usually count on Smith for penalty minutes more than points, the feisty forward has four goals on 20 shots in his last six games.

Sens' Smith Adds Assist Tuesday

News: Zack Smith recorded an assist in Tuesday's win over the Panthers.
Analysis: Zack Smith has been on a mini hot streak lately, with three points in his last four games. He has four goals and four assists through 28 games to date, and centered the third line Tuesday since Colin Greening has been struggling. His 29 PIM on the season are enough to make him decently valuable in deeper leagues.

Sens' Smith Tallies Thursday

News: Zack Smith scored his second goal of the year in Thursday's win over the Devils.
Analysis: Zack Smith isn't known for his offensive contributions, but he set season highs Thursday with 17:07 on ice and 1:08 in power-play time. Still, the energy forward can't be counted on for anything more than a handful of points and a decent helping of PIMs going forward.

Sens' Smith Notches First Preseason Goal

News: Zack Smith scored his first point of the preseason Tuesday, a second-period goal in a win over the Leafs.
Analysis: He also won an impressive 10 of 14 faceoffs. Zack Smith appears set to take on a bottom-six role with the Sens again this year, and despite his young age (25), his fantasy upside is fairly limited outside of contributions in the tough-guy department -- that is, PIM and hits.

Ottawa's Smith Joins Danish League Team

News: Zack Smith has agreed to a contract with the Frederikshavn White Hawks of Denmark's AL-Bank Ligae, the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: Zack Smith will be reunited in the AL-Bank Ligae with Senators teammate Colin Greening, who plays for the Aalborg Pirates. Smith compiled 26 points and 98 penalty minutes for the Senators last season, earning a four-year extension in September.

Sens Give Smith Four-Year Extension

News: Zack Smith agreed to a four-year extension with the Senators through the 2016-17 NHL season, the team's official website reports.
Analysis: Zack Smith, 24, appeared in 81 games for the Senators last season, setting career highs in goals (14), assists (12) and plus/minus (plus-4). Smith's biggest asset is perhaps his durability. He has never missed a game due to injury with the Senators, suiting up in 152 total contests.

Sens Bench Smith For Sunday's Game Against Florida

News: Zack Smith will be a healthy scratch for Sunday's road game against the Panthers reports the Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch.
Analysis: With no points in his last 12 games, this doesn't come as a huge shock. Zack Smith had a great start to the season, but his game has lacked focus recently so a game or two in the press box should do him some good.

Sens' Smith Likely To Return To Action Saturday

News: Zack Smith (upper body) should be good enough to return to Ottawa's lineup for Saturday's game against Anaheim, reports the Ottawa Citizen.
Analysis: He had his bell rung during the second period of Thursday's 4-1 win over San Jose and had to be helped off the ice and did not return. Zack Smith was back at practice on Friday and talked to reporters afterwards and indicated he felt much better and would probably be fine to play Saturday. He's having a very nice season as Ottawa's third line center, with nine goals, 12 assists, and a plus-5 rating through 49 games.

Smith Scores In Sens' Loss

News: Zack Smith scored one of Ottawa's two goals in Tuesday's loss to Montreal.
Analysis: Zack Smith has two goals in the last four games after enduring a stretch of five games where he failed to register a point. Expect Smith to continue establishing himself as one of Ottawa's better young players, albeit with the peaks and valleys in production one can usually expect.

Smith Grabs Two For Sens

News: Zack Smith scored twice in Monday's 4-2 win over Tampa Bay, his first points in two games.
Analysis: Zack Smith has five goals in the last five games, including a pair of two-goal efforts in the last two weeks. Smith has been producing a solid rate for Ottawa with eight goals and 15 points in 27 games. He has already exceeded last season's career high of four goals and is proving to be a promising player for the Senators.

Smith Scores Two Goals For The Senators

News: Zack Smith scored two goals, including a very rare power-play goal, in Tuesday's win over the Jets.
Analysis: Zack Smith almost never gets power play time, and was surprised before going onto the ice with the man advantage. "I had to do a double-take there," he said. "That was only my second or third shift (on the power play) this season. But I guess he wanted to change things up."

Ottawa's Smith Scores Loan Goal In Loss Friday Night

News: Zack Smith scored a shorthanded goal Friday night as Ottawa fell to Montreal, 2-1.
Analysis: The goal was his second of the year. Zack Smith was also named the game's second star. He now has two goals and four assists in 14 games.

Sens' Smith Scores Two Goals In Loss Friday Night

News: Zack Smith scored two goals, including a shorthanded one, in Ottawa's 4-3 shootout loss to Montreal on Friday night.
Analysis: He'll likely start the season as Ottawa's third line center. Who his linemates will be is still to be determined, but look for the likes of Colin Greening and Erik Condra to be in the mix.

Sens Re-Sign Zack Smith To Two-Year Contract Extension

News: Ottawa re-signed Smith to a two-year, one-way contract extension on Thursday reports the club's web site.
Analysis: Smith is having a great Calder Cup playoff run with Ottawa's AHL affiliate, having notched six goals and 11 assists in 16 games. He should be a lock to make the big club out of training camp in September.

Senators Recall Smith From AHL Binghamton

News: The Sentators recalled Smith from AHL Binghamton on Tuesday, according to the team's official website.
