Flames' Smid Done For The Season

News: The Flames ruled Ladislav Smid out for the season Friday due to a neck issue, Roger Millions of Sportsnet reports.
Analysis: General manager Brad Treliving said that Ladislav Smid, who had been skating in recent days, aggravating an existing injury related to the vertebrae in his neck and would require extensive time to rest. While Smid's minimal contributions in the scoring categories didn't have fantasy owners anxiously awaiting his return, the Flames were looking forward to having him back, especially after Mark Giordano's season-ending biceps injury thinned the team's depth on the blue line. With Smid now lost for the year, the Flames have extended a tryout offer to free agent defenseman Douglas Murray, who could soon sign a contract with the team.

Flames' Smid Resumes Skating

News: Ladislav Smid (upper body) resumed skating Thursday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Analysis: While getting back on the ice represents a positive development, Ladislav Smid has been out since late January with the injury, so he's not close to being activated from IR. Smid could resume practicing with the team next week at the earliest, at which point a timetable for his return might become available.

Smid (Undisclosed) Misses Practice Monday

News: Ladislav Smid (undisclosed) did not participate in practice Monday, Aaron Vickers of the Flames' official site reports.
Analysis: Ladislav Smid was placed on injured reserve Jan. 20, which left the door open for his return following the All-Star break. His status for Tuesday's game appears in doubt, however, as he did not return to the ice Monday. The team should officially release the details of his availability at some point before the opening faceoff of the team's tilt with the Sabres.

Upper-Body Injury For Flames' Smid

News: Ladislav Smid's injury is being listed as an upper-body ailment, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Analysis: It was an upper-body injury that kept Ladislav Smid out of commission for most of December and the early part of January, so it's possible that he might have aggravated something Monday night. In any case, the Flames have already moved him back to injured reserve and have recalled Tyler Wotherspoon from AHL Adirondack for insurance on defense.

Flames' Smid (Undisclosed) Placed On IR

News: Ladislav Smid was placed on injured reserve Tuesday with an undisclosed injury.
Analysis: It appears Ladislav Smid sustained some sort of ailment during Monday's win over the Kings, though the Flames haven't released word on the nature or severity of the injury. The blueliner had just been activated from IR on Jan. 7 after missing 10 consecutive games with an upper-body injury. Tyler Wotherspoon was recalled from AHL Adirondack in a corresponding move to restore some depth on defense. Smid will be eligible to return from IR for the Flames' first game after the All-Star break on Jan. 27.

Flames Activate Smid (Upper Body) From IR

News: Ladislav Smid (upper body) was activated from injured reserve Wednesday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet.ca reports.
Analysis: Ladislav Smid has been practicing for the last few days with the team, and while he won't necessarily play Wednesday, it appears the team was comfortable in bringing him aboard as an extra defenseman. He should gradually work his way back into the lineup to play a third-pairing role, but won't offer much fantasy appeal outside of leagues that count hits and blocked shots.

Flames' Smid (Upper Body) Doubtful For Wednesday

News: Ladislav Smid (upper body) is considered doubtful for Wednesday's game against the Red Wings despite getting in a full practice with the team Monday.
Analysis: Ladislav Smid has been shelved with the injury since Dec. 12 after taking a big hit from the Penguins' Simon Despres. Assuming he can't go again Wednesday, he will have to wait until Friday for his next chance to return.

Flames' Smid Expected To Practice

News: Ladislav Smid is expected back at practice Sunday and may be in the lineup Wednesday against the Red Wings, the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: Ladislav Smid will likely replace either Deryk Engelland or Raphael Diaz in the lineup. He doesn't produce much offensively, with only a point on the season, but brings some toughness to the Flames' lineup.

Flames' Smid Moves To IR

News: Ladislav Smid (upper body) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: Ladislav Smid suffered the injury in Friday's loss to the Penguins, skating for just 8:33 before departing. The Flames were quick to determine the injury wasn't merely a day-to-day situation, as the placement on IR will keep him out for at least three games. Expect the Flames to announce a call-up on defense prior to Sunday's tilt with the Blackhawks.

Flames' Smid Exits Game With Injury

News: Ladislav Smid (upper body) will not return to Friday's game against the Penguins.
Analysis: Ladislav Smid left the game in the second period after taking a big hit from Simon Despres. He was able to get up under his own power and skate off the ice, but immediately headed to the Flames' locker room. The team should shed some light on the severity of Smid's injury in the coming days.

Flames' Smid Set To Return Tuesday

News: Ladislav Smid (personal) will rejoin the lineup Tuesday versus the Coyotes, NHL.com's Aaron Vickers reports.
Analysis: Ladislav Smid was held out of one game due to personal reasons, but will reclaim his spot on the Flames' third pairing Tuesday. He has just one point and a minus-6 rating over 23 games.

News: Ladislav Smid will not play Saturday against the Coyotes, Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: Ladislav Smid went home for personal reasons, and will not be available when the Flames face the Coyotes on Saturday. The nature of Smid's personal business is unclear, but for now he should be considered day-to-day.

Flames' Smid To Return To Lineup

News: Ladislav Smid will be in the lineup Saturday against Florida, the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: Ladislav Smid missed Thursday's matchup with an upper-body injury but the couple days off appears to have been enough to get him healthy again. The blueliner has only one point on the season but is in the lineup more for his hard hits and defensive prowess.

Flames Scratch Smid With Injury Thursday

News: Ladislav Smid was scratched from Thursday's game against the Lightning with an upper-body injury, the Associated Press reports.
Analysis: The Flames are labeling Ladislav Smid as day-to-day and believe he'll be an option for Saturday's game against the Panthers, so it doesn't look like he's on track for a long-term absence. The blueliner has tallied one point and 11 penalty minutes over 14 games this season.

Flames' Smid Returns To Ice

News: Ladislav Smid (mouth) returned to full practice Wednesday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Analysis: Ladislav Smid had been recovering from a tooth infection over the past few days, but it appears he's no longer facing any limitations. He'll provide the Flames with his usual brand of toughness on the back end this season.

Flames' Smid Recovering From Tooth Infection

News: Ladislav Smid has been recovering from a serious tooth infection and isn't practicing at full strength, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Analysis: The Flames are playing it safe with Ladislav Smid for now, but suffice to say, the team expects him to be ready to go for the regular season. Smid is valued for the dependability he brings on defense, but aside from specialty leagues that count hits and blocks, he's unlikely to carry much fantasy value.

Flames' Smid Likely Done For Season

News: Ladislav Smid (upper body) is not expected to return this season, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Analysis: Coach Bob Hartley suggested that among the Flames' injured skaters, only Mikael Backlund had a chance at returning for the team's remaining games, effectively ruling out Ladislav Smid. After coming over in a trade with Edmonton back in November, Smid was highly productive on the defensive end for Calgary, racking up 141 hits and 134 blocks.

News: Ladislav Smid suffered an upper-body injury during Friday's game against the Rangers and will not return, NHL.com's Aaron Vickers reports.
Analysis: Ladislav Smid took a hit from Derek Dorsett in the first period and appeared to be in some pain upon retreating to the bench. The Flames will update his condition soon, so consider him day-to-day for the time being.

Smid Gets First Goal For Flames

News: Ladislav Smid scored his first goal as a member of the Flames in Wednesday's win over the Ducks.
Analysis: Known more for his work as a stay-at-home defenseman, even Ladislav Smid couldn't help but get into the act in the Flames' seven-goal onslaught against the Ducks. Smid added seven hits for good measure in the victory.

Flames' Smid Scratched By Czech Republic

News: Ladislav Smid (lower body) will be scratched by the Czech Republic for their opening game in the Winter Olympics against Sweden, Dan Rosen of NHL.com reports.
Analysis: It appears Ladislav Smid is considered healthy after suffering a lower-body injury in the Flames' final game before the break, but the Czech team decided to go with foreign leaguers Lukas Krajicek and Michal Barinka as the third pairing. Smid should see the ice at some point before the Olympics are over.

Flames' Smid Nursing Lower-Body Injury

News: Ladislav Smid sustained a lower-body injury in Saturday's loss to the Flyers, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Analysis: It's an untimely injury with Ladislav Smid set to play in the Olympics for the Czech Republic next week, but the ailment is only of the day-to-day variety and not expected to cost him any action. Smid saw 9:40 of ice time Saturday before departing in the second period.

News: Ladislav Smid assisted on a key insurance goal in the third period of Thursday's 4-1 win against the Sharks.
Analysis: Ladislav Smid returned to the lineup with a plus-3 in Tuesday's win, and contributed an assist Thursday. The big defenseman has been a decent acquisition for Calgary, although not for points (four in 53 games).

Flames' Smid To Return Tuesday

News: Ladislav Smid (undisclosed) will play Tuesday vs. the Blackhawks, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

Flames' Smid Returns To Practice

News: Ladislav Smid (undisclosed) returned to practice Monday, Randy Sportak of the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: Ladislav Smid missed Friday's game with the injury and had been off the ice the past few days, but it doesn't appear as though a move to IR will be forthcoming. There would seem to be a good possibility that he'd be back in the lineup Tuesday night against the Blackhawks.
