Leafs Recall Smithson

Leafs' Smithson Recalled From AHL

News: Jerred Smithson was recalled from AHL Toronto on Wednesday, David Alter of Sportsnet 590 The Fan reports.
Analysis: Following Trevor Smith's hand injury Tuesday, the Leafs are now without three of their top centers, so they brought Jerred Smithson back up for some depth. Smithson is yet to record a point in 13 games with the NHL club this season.

Leafs Place Smithson On Waivers

News: The Maple Leafs placed Jerred Smithson on waivers Wednesday, David Alter of Sportsnet 590 reports.

Leafs Sign Smithson

News: Jerred Smithson signed with the Maple Leafs on Wednesday, James Mirtle of the Globe and Mail reports.
Analysis: The team's decision to demote Trevor Smith earlier Wednesday makes a whole lot more sense in light of this development. Jerred Smithson, who put up six points (3G, 3A) in 45 games between Edmonton and Florida last season, will likely step in immediately along the fourth line.

Oilers' Smithson Playing Sunday

News: Jerred Smithson will make his Oilers debut Saturday in Los Angeles, the Edmonton Sun's Derek Van Diest reports.
Analysis: Jerred Smithson, who only had five points in 35 games with the Panthers before being traded, will likely slot in on the fourth line. He is off the radar in most fantasy leagues and the recent trade is unlikely to provide any more than a tiny bump in fantasy value for Smithson.

Oilers' Smithson Uncertain For Saturday

News: Jerred Smithson's status for Saturday has not yet been determined.
Analysis: Jerred Smithson was traded from the Panthers to the Oilers on Wednesday and will likely debut Monday if he does not play Saturday. He only tallied two goals and five points in 35 games with the Panthers this season.

Panthers Deal Smithson To Oilers

News: Jerred Smithson has been traded by the Panthers to the Oilers for a fourth-round draft pick, reports TSN's Bob McKenzie.
Analysis: Jerred Smithson's main value is as a depth-liner, penalty killer and winner of key face-offs, as he's at nearly 55 percent for his career. He'll slide into the Oil's bottom six.

Panthers' Smithson Will Sit Out Game 1

News: Jerred Smithson will be inactive for Game 1 against the Devils, the Miami Herald reports.
Analysis: Buried deep on Florida's depth chart, Jerred Smithson wasn't much of a factor in fantasy leagues during the regular season. Smithson recorded only six points on limited ice time during the season, indicating the Panthers shouldn't be handicapped by his absence.

Panthers' Smithson Grabs First Panther Point

News: Jerred Smithson picked up his first point as a Panther when he assisted on John Madden's second period goal in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Bruins.
Analysis: Jerred Smithson now has six points in 63 games this season and should be reserved for only the deepest of leagues.

Florida Trades For Smithson

News: Nashville traded Jerred Smithson to Florida on Friday in exchange for a sixth-round pick, Panthers.NHL.com reports.
Analysis: With five points (one goal) for Nashville in 52 games, there's not much reason to expect noteworthy production out of Jerred Smithson.

Preds' Smithson Returns From Upper-Body Injury

News: Jerred Smithson made his return to the lineup Thursday against Philadelphia after missing two games with an upper-body injury.
Analysis: He did not hit the scoresheet during the Preds' 4-1 loss, but he did register two PIMs, two hits and a blocked shot. Feel free to get him back into your lineups if you haven't already.

Preds' Smithson (Upper Body) Remains Day-To-Day

News: Contrary to a previous report, Jerred Smithson (upper body) did not play Tuesday against Minnesota.
Analysis: Preds coach Barry Trotz said he hoped Jerred Smithson could play Thursday's game against Philadelphia.

Preds' Smithson (Upper Body) To Return Tuesday

News: Jerred Smithson (upper body) is expected to return to the lineup for Tuesday's game at Minnesota, The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: "I needed to take some time and it feels night-and-day," Jerred Smithson said. "It feels so much better. I'm really looking forward to getting back and making a big impact this last part of the season." At this point, it appears safe to get Smithson back into your lineups.

Preds' Smithson Out With Upper Body Injury

News: Jerred Smithson missed Tuesday's 3-1 win over Chicago with an upper body injury, The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: No word on whether this is the same injury that caused him to miss five games earlier this month, but we're betting it is. With just five points in 44 games this season, Jerred Smithson should only be found on fantasy rosters in ultra-deep leagues. Reserve him immediately.

Preds' Smithson Returns Following Upper Body Injury

News: After missing the previous five game, Jerred Smithson (upper-body) returned to the lineup for Thursday's 3-0 win against Columbus. He saw 12:02 worth of ice time and assisted on Shea Weber's empty-net goal to help ice the game for the Preds.
Analysis: It looks safe to get Jerred Smithson back into your fantasy lineups at this point. Smithson has just five points (1G, 4A) in 42 games this season, but he currently sits second on the team in hits (85) and third in PIM (28).

Preds Activate Smithson From IR

News: Jerred Smithson, who has missed the last five games with a lower body injury, has been activated from injured reserve, according to The Tennessean.
Analysis: Coach Barry Trotz has listed Jerred Smithson, second on the Preds in hits with 83, as a game-time decision for Thursday's game at Columbus, but the paper seems to be leaning toward Smithson playing. "I feel good. Took a few days to let it heal. I'm ready to play, whenever they want me," Smithson said.

Preds' Smithson (Lower Body) Placed On IR

News: Jerred Smithson (lower body) was placed on IR after missing his third consecutive game Saturday against Philadelphia, according to the Tennessean.
Analysis: The Preds travel to New York this week for back-to-back games Monday and Tuesday against the Islanders and Rangers, respectively. Coach Barry Trotz said he expects Jerred Smithson will travel with the team but is not likely to play. Keep him reserved for the time being.

Preds' Smithson Still Out With Lower Body Injury

News: Jerred Smithson (lower body) will miss his second consecutive game Saturday against the Flyers, according to the Tennessean.
Analysis: "It's nothing serious," coach Barry Trotz said. "It's just got to settle down for him. He's just day-to-day. Once it settles down he'll be fine." Consider Jerred Smithson day-to-day for the time being.

Preds' Smithson Day-To-Day

News: Jerred Smithson is out Thursday with a lower body injury, Joshua Cooper of The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Jerred Smithson is considered day-to-day for now. The center only has four points in 41 games on the season.

Preds' Smithson Doing Little Things Right

News: Jerred Smithson has just four points (1G, 3A) in 40 games this season, but leads the Preds in hits with 82.
Analysis: Jerred Smithson, who typically plays on Nashville's fourth line with Matt Halischuk and Brian McGrattan, is also second on the team in faceoff winning percentage (55.4%) and third in PIM (28). He's really only a valuable fantasy commodity if your league counts obscure stat categories such as these.

Smithson Enjoying Leadership Role With Preds This Season

News: Jerred Smithson has established himself as a veteran leader on the Preds this season, according to the Tennessean.
Analysis: "He gives you everything he has every day in practice and in games," coach Barry Trotz said of Jerred Smithson. "You want to surround your top players and young players with guys like that." In a defining "leadership moment", Smithson recently called out his teammates following a 3-1 loss to Edmonton on Oct. 17. The team has since gone on to win five of eight games. "We started playing better hockey from that point on," said Smithson. "It was the heat of the moment and you're fired up and it needed to be said." Unfortunately for Smithson, locker-room leadership does not translate into fantasy value. His appeal will be limited to ultra-deep leagues, having recorded just 13 points in each of the past three seasons. However, he is a clearly a very highly-regarded asset by the Preds and he will continue to see 14-15 minutes per night as part of the team's third line.

Preds Get Smithson Back Monday

News: Smithson, who missed Game 5 against the Canucks with an upper body injury, says he's ready to play in Game 6 on Monday, The Vancouver Province reports. Coach Barry Trotz confirmed Smithson is in.
Analysis: The Preds will get a boost in their attempt to come all the way back from a 3-1 series deficit, as Smithson is a good role guy on face-offs and the penalty kill, certainly a good thing when facing the potent Canucks.

Predators' Smithson Out For Game 5

News: Smithson (upper body) did not travel with the team for Saturday's Game 5 against the Canucks, The Tennessean reports.
Analysis: Smith was elbowed in the face at the end the first period in Game 4 and was unable to return. J.P. Dumont will suit up in place of Smithson, who should be considered questionable for a potential Game 6.

Preds Lose Smithson

News: Smithson suffered an upper-body injury during Wednesday's Game 4 against the Canucks, reports the Tennessean.
Analysis: Few details are available, but Smithson departed the game at the end of the first period and didn't return. According to coach Barry Trotz, he is doubtful for Saturday's game in Vancouver.

Preds' Smithson Scores Overtime Winner Friday

News: Smithson scored at the 1:57 mark of overtime to give the Predators a 4-3 overtime win over the Ducks on Friday night.
Analysis: Although he hadn't scored a goal since January 15th, he certainly chose the right time to get off the snide. Nashville now leads the best-of-seven series three games to two.
