Signs two-year contract
LWDetroit Red Wings
September 14, 2021
Smith signed a two-year contract with the Red Wings on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
Smith spent the majority of the 2020-21 season in the minors, picking up nine goals, 15 points and 54 PIM in 25 games, but he also drew into 16 contests with the big club, picking up four points over that span. He'll likely have a similar role in 2021-22, so don't expect Smith to emerge as a viable fantasy option.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2018
Smith spent the bulk of the 2019-20 campaign with AHL Grand Rapids, but the physical winger will forever remember that year as one in which he made his grand entrance into the NHL. Primarily serving as an injury reinforcement, Smith ended up with two goals and an assist through 21 contests at the top level. He already drives opponents batty with his abrasive playing style, but Smith needs to improve his skating in order to be trusted with a consistent role with the parent club.
Smith is a fiery junior-league competitor who's found a second home in the penalty box having been named the OHL's most penalized player in back-to-back seasons from 2015-17. Still, he's far from a slouch in the attacking zone based on his output of 73 goals and 62 assists through 236 games split between the Barrie Colts, Guelph Storm and Kitchener Rangers. Given Smith's lofty draft profile -- he was Detroit's second-round (46th overall) draft pick in 2016 -- the 20-year-old should be highly owned in keeper/dynasty formats, but it's unlikely that he'll bypass the AHL in 2018-19 and that would render him a rather futile option in most redraft leagues.
