2020 Fantasy Outlook
Smith's a high-upside defensive prospect who has exceeded a point per game in each of the last three seasons with the Spokane Chiefs of the WHL. New Jersey's first-round selection from the 2018 draft may require some AHL seasoning, but given the team's lack of options on the blue line, it wouldn't be surprising to see Smith make the jump straight to the NHL level. Power-play ice time is likely in Smith's future, but New Jersey has a dearth of playmakers up front and may opt to bring him along slowly, limiting his short-term appeal. Read Past Outlooks

Aggravates injury

May 4, 2021
Smith (upper body) won't be available Tuesday against the Bruins, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.
ANALYSIS
Smith evidently aggravated the upper-body injury he was dealing with in late April during Monday's loss to the Bruins, so at this point it wouldn't be surprising to see him miss the rest of the season. If that ends up being the case, he'll finish the campaign having racked up 23 points in 48 games as a 21-year-old rookie.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
Smith has put up video game numbers for the Spokane Chiefs of the WHL, with 142 points in 126 games over the past two seasons. The offensively gifted blueliner was New Jersey's first-round selection (17th overall) in 2018, and Smith has a bright NHL future in front of him if his WHL scoring is any indication. That said, it's hard to imagine him making the leap straight from junior hockey to the NHL, so expect Smith to start his pro career with AHL Binghamton.
