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.

Flames' Smid Remains Out

News: Ladislav Smid (upper body) will not play in Monday's game against New Jersey, the Calgary Herald reports.
Analysis: Ladislav Smid is likely not going to play the rest of the season, as the Flames have been eliminated from playoff contention.

Flames' Smid Suffers Injury Friday

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.

Calgary's Smid Dishes Assist

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.
Analysis: Ladislav Smid will receive clearance to return to action after he was able to practice without incident Monday morning. He missed only one game due to the undisclosed ailment.

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.

Flames' Smid Still Not Practicing

News: Ladislav Smid missed the weekend's practices for "maintenance," according to the Calgary Herald.
Analysis: Ladislav Smid also missed Friday's game with his undisclosed injury. The veteran is dealing with a nagging injury, and with the Flames so far out of the playoff hunt, there's no need to rush him back.

Flames' Smid Misses Friday's Game

News: Ladislav Smid missed Friday's 5-4 shootout win over Nashville with an undisclosed injury, the Calgary Sun reports.
Analysis: Ladislav Smid had left a game Jan. 18 with a chest injury but had played in a few games since then. Coach Hartley described his malady as a nagging injury, but declined to give specifics. He shouldn't miss much time, especially with the Olympic break approaching.

Flames' Smid Set To Play Monday

News: Despite leaving Saturday's tilt with a chest injury, Ladislav Smid should suit up for Monday's game against St. Louis, according to the Calgary Herald.
Analysis: Ladislav Smid will log more minutes Monday, as workhorse Kris Russell is out for the Blues game. While Smid is paired with Mark Giordano, he hasn't scored in 10 games and is in the lineup for his defensive prowess, not his production.

Calgary's Smid Hit For 15 PIM

News: Ladislav Smid was sent off for boarding and a game misconduct penalty in the second period of Calgary's win over Los Angeles on Saturday.
Analysis: This is good news and bad news and good news. The good news is that his fantasy owners get 15 penalty minutes basically out of nowhere; Ladislav Smid has never been a major source of PIM. The bad news is that he left his team a player short for the third frame, and might face disciplinary action from the league for endangering LA's Dwight King. The good news is that the Flames turned the ensuing five-minute penalty kill into a key shorthanded goal.

Oilers Ship Smid To Calgary

News: Ladislav Smid was traded to the Flames on Friday for two prospects, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.
Analysis: Despite inking Ladislav Smid to a four-year, $14 million extension in April, the Oilers elected to ship out the 27-year-old after he failed to play up to expectations this season. In his 17 games this season, Smid tallied two points and a minus-6 rating, with the latter figure unlikely to improve much for a similar defensively challenged Calgary squad. He'll at least attempt to stabilize the Flames' defensive ranks with Mark Giordano still out for multiple weeks.

Oilers' Smid Scores First

News: Ladislav Smid collected his first goal of the year in Tuesday's win over the Canadiens.
Analysis: Don't get used to the offensive contributions, as the tally came on just Ladislav Smid's third shot on goal in 10 games this season. He'd actually gone seven consecutive games without putting the puck on net, making him one of Tuesday's most unlikely scorers. Meanwhile, those in leagues that count hits and/or blocks were pleased as usual, as Smid collected four of each.

Oilers Extend Smid

News: The Oilers have signed Ladislav Smid to a four-year contract extension, the Edmonton Journal reports.
Analysis: The deal, which is reportedly worth $14 million, effectively removes Ladislav Smid's name from consideration for a trade deadline swap. The 27-year-old blueliner possess limited upside on offense, with just three points in 34 games to date, but he does at least chip in fantasy-wise with his PIMs (41), hits (103) and blocks (91).

Smid Scores Early For Oilers

News: Ladislav Smid collected a goal and an assist during a lopsided first period of Saturday's game against Vancouver.
Analysis: You shouldn't expect many more multi-point games from this stay-at-home defenseman.

Oilers' Smid Expected To Be Re-Signed

News: Ladislav Smid is expected to be re-signed by Edmonton, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Once the lockout is over the Oilers will worry about locking Ladislav Smid up. Smid has developed into a solid d-man for Edmonton and could be in line for a three- or four-year deal.

Oilers' Smid To Play For Liberec During Lockout

News: Ladislav Smid will play for Liberec of the Czech Extraliga during the lockout, according to the Edmonton Journal.
Analysis: Liberec lost 5-2 last night, perhaps Liberec isn't any better than Edmonton has been the past few years.

Oilers' Smid Stays Behind For Finale

News: Ladislav Smid (neck) did not travel with the team to Vancouver for their season finale, the Edmonton Journal reports.
Analysis: Test results showed no structural damage to the neck which was a relief, but with the Oilers not heading to the playoffs, there was no reason to put the defenseman at risk.

Oilers' Smid Might Be Shut Down

News: Ladislav Smid (unspecified injury) could sit out the Oilers' final two games of the season, the Edmonton Journal reports.
Analysis: Ladislav Smid, who had neck surgery after the 2009-10 season, was banged up Friday (on a hit from behind) and with the Oilers out of playoff contention, there's no compelling reason to rush him back into the lineup, in particular if he tweaked his neck at all Friday.
