RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014-15

Subscribe now to see our 2014-15 outlook.

2012-13

Smith can play -- he's fast and gutsy -- but he will be once again be in tough to earn a regular spot with the Hawks. The team's bottom-six depth is significant. He's coming off endoscopic hip surgery, but swears he'll be ready to compete in camp. Still, watch for him to start the season in the AHL.

2011-12

Smith made a big impact in the postseason with three goals, including the game-winning goal in Game 6 against the Canucks, pushing the series to seven games. He went from play for Boston College the season before to skating in six games in the regular season and scoring one goal. Smith should get a bump to make the team this season after his postseason, but he will have to show the team that the playoff numbers were not a fluke.

2010-11

Smith is a smart player who recently completed four years with the Boston College Eagles, never missing out on a contest for the 2010 national champions of Hockey East. The Blackhawks signed him to a two-year deal last April.
