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. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a one-year, two-way contract worth $874,125 with the Sabres in July 2018.
Set to play on third line

February 5, 2019
Smith will play on a line with Evan Rodrigues and Sam Reinhart for Tuesday's game versus Minnesota, John Vogl of the Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
This is a big boost to Smith's value, seeing that Reinhart is third in Sabres scoring with 45 points, and Rodrigues has been hot in posting seven points in his past nine contests. Buffalo is spreading out its scoring to create a more balanced attack. Smith earned a call-up after netting 41 points in as many games in Rochester of the AHL, so now he can try to take the next step in his development and lock down a spot with the big club should he contribute on the scoresheet.
