2019 Fantasy Outlook
Smith finds himself right on the borderline of the NHL and AHL. The 24-year-old Iowa native has appeared in 13 games for the Sabres, registering three points. He'll compete for a roster spot in camp but will be fighting an uphill battle to make it given the team's combination of veterans and NHL-ready prospects. To his credit, Smith has at least proven to be a productive minor-leaguer, as he's coming off a 28-goal, 58-point campaign over 62 games with AHL Rochester. Read Past Outlooks

ANALYSIS
Smith saw action in 11 games for the Sabres last season, in which he tallied two goals, 18 shots and four hits while averaging just 10:39 of ice time. The winger figures to continue dividing time between the AHL and NHL this year, but will likely sit near the top of the shortlist of potential call-ups.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
Smith was a pleasant surprise for the Sabres, being named to the AHL All-Star Game in his rookie season after scoring 44 points in 57 games. His strong performance didn't earn a call-up but it didn't go unnoticed by the Sabres, who have praised Smith and will let him compete for a roster spot at training camp. Smith has to prove his rookie season was no fluke and must do that in the AHL, but if the Sabres need extra help Smith should be one of the team's first options.
