Sens' Smith Set To Return

News: Zack Smith is slated to play Monday against the Sharks.
Analysis: Zack Smith, who last suited up for the Sens on Dec. 13, checks back into the team's lineup with three points and 12 PIM in 27 games, the sort of production that restricts his fantasy utility to deeper formats.

Sens' Recall Smith From Conditioning Assignement

News: Zack Smith (wrist) was recalled from his conditioning stint with AHL Binghamton on Sunday.
Analysis: Zack Smith's recall indicates he should be good to go moving forward, with return to the lineup possibly on tap Monday. He's tallied three points over 27 games with the Senators this season, but hasn't played in a NHL game since Dec. 15, when he dislocated his wrist.

Sens Assign Smith To AHL

News: The Senators have assigned Zack Smith to AHL Binghamton on a conditioning assignment.
Analysis: Zack Smith, who is bouncing back from a dislocated wrist that he suffered back on Dec. 13, will thus have a chance to get up to speed at the AHL level before reentering the big club's forward mix. Prior to his injury, Smith had recorded three points in 27 games for the Sens.

Sens Activate Smith From IR

News: Zack Smith (wrist) was activated from injured reserve in advance of Tuesday's game against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Though Zack Smith was cleared to resume playing over the weekend and did travel with the Senators to Carolina on Tuesday, he will not be making his return to the lineup. Coach Dave Cameron seems satisfied with the play of his fourth-line crew at the moment, so it may take a poor performance by the team in order for Smith to make his first appearance since Dec. 13. Smith should be considered day-to-day until he formally returns to action, which could happen Mar. 19 against the Bruins.

Sens' Smith (Wrist) Cleared To Return

News: Zack Smith (wrist) has been cleared to return but won't play Sunday against the Flyers, Dean Brown of TSN 1200 reports.
Analysis: Zack Smith was cleared for contact over a week ago, and it appears the strength in his wrist has returned to a satisfactory level. Despite being cleared to return, he'll sit out Sunday's contest, and will likely continue to be a borderline lineup option moving forward. He will have to officially be activated before taking the ice, however.

Blazers' Smith Cleared To Take Contact

News: Zack Smith (wrist) has been cleared to take full contact in practices, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.
Analysis: While an injured player's participation in a full-contact practice would typically signal a forthcoming return, the Senators aren't quite certain when or if Zack Smith will play again this season. His biggest obstacle remaining might be to regain strength in the wrist to shoot and maneuver with the puck, but there's no clear timetable on how long that might take. Smith shouldn't be viewed as day-to-day quite yet.

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.

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.

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.

Zack Smith

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.
