RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Gemel Smith.
Smith was taken in the fourth round of the 2011 draft as Dallas looked to restock centers in the system. He's been compared to a Steve Ott-type player, showing solid checking and hitting skills with a little offense mixed in. He's small, even by today's NHL standards, which will likely limit him to a third-line role, but that's a role that Ott filled for years with good success in Dallas.
