RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016-17

Subscribe now to see our 2016-17 outlook.

2015-16

Smith has never been a major contributor on the offensive end of the ice, but he sunk to new lows in 2014-15, due in no small part to injury. He appeared in just 37 games, posting a grand total of two goals and one assist. The 27-year-old shows a willingness to lay hits and was over the century mark in penalty minutes as recently as the 2013-14 campaign, so he'll be a name to keep an eye on in deeper specialty formats, but beyond that, there's little fantasy value to be found here.

2014-15

Smith has proven his worth at the NHL level as a depth forward by killing penalties and dropping the gloves. He'll likely be an every day player again in 2014-15, but he doesn't bring much to the table outside of him PIM production. With just 22 points and a minus-9 rating in 82 games, Smith should only be a fantasy option in deeper leagues.

2013-14

Smith played all 48 games for the Senators in 2013, and recorded a line of 4/11/15 to go along with 56 PIMs. He'll likely play a depth role again in 2013-14. Even though he's going to play every game and will likely provide a few penalty minutes, his fantasy value is pretty limited.

2012-13

Centering Ottawa’s third line for most of the season, Smith showed a nice offensive side to his game in the early going of the year, notching 12 goals and nine assists in his first 41 games before tailing off for two goals and seven assists the rest of the way. This season, Smith will need to take on more of a tough-guy role with the departure of Matt Carkner during the offseason. Smith is not afraid to drop the gloves, having accumulated eight fighting majors in 2011-12. Look for the 24-year old center to get around 10 goals and 15 assists with at least 100 penalty minutes, after recording 98 last season. Smith is an underrated player on a young Sens team and is exactly the type of player teams love to have in the playoffs.

2011-12

Smith should start the 2011-12 season playing on one of Ottawa's bottom two lines. He loves to agitate and throw his body around, opening up space for his linemates, and can chip in with the occasional goal as he does have a nice wrist shot and decent foot speed. Smith has the tendency to take some misguided penalties due to his aggressive nature so if he is to establish himself as a bonafide NHLer, he'll need to dial back the aggressiveness during certain in-game situations. If he can put up 10 goals and 15 assists, the 2011-12 season can be considered a success for the 23-year-old Smith.

2010-11

Smith should start the season with the big club, centering the 4th line. He played in all six playoff games against the Penguins and carried himself well. Smith has nice speed and decent shot so he could add a bit of offense from the 4th line. That being said, Smith has limited fantasy value and should be avoided in all but the deepest of leagues.

2009-10

Along with Peter Regin and Ilya Zubov, Smith is one of the young forward prospects who should see some time with the big club. Assistant GM Tim Murray is quite high on the gritty forward and Smith will be given every opportunity to make the Sens' roster out of camp. He has decent offensive potential who isn't afraid to get dirty in front of the net. If he can stick with Ottawa, look for him to get upwards of 15 goals and 15 assists.

2008-09

Smith will start the 2008-09 season with Ottawa's AHL affiliate in Binghamton. Ottawa's third round pick in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Smith has good leadership qualities and decent offensive upside. Look for him to challenge for a starting role in Ottawa in a couple of years.
