Ty Smith
20-Year-Old DefensemanD
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. Read Past Outlooks

Progressing well at junior level

Smith finished 2019-20 with 59 points in 46 games for WHL Spokane. He was also named to the WHL Western Conference First All-Star Team.
ANALYSIS
The 2018 No. 17 overall pick by the Devils also racked up an insane plus-49 rating, thanks in large part to often sharing the ice with WHL scoring champion and Wild prospect Adam Beckman (48 goals, 107 points) and center Eli Zummack (86 points). Highlighted by an eight-point (!) outing against Seattle on Feb. 28 and 15 multi-point games overall, Smith upped his production to 1.28 points per game from marks of 1.21, 1.06 and 0.48 in the prior three campaigns. The blueliner technically has another year of WHL eligibility remaining since he doesn't turn 21 until March, but he looks as sure a bet as any to open 2020-21 professionally -- whether it be with AHL Binghamton or New Jersey.
