Pittsburgh Penguins winger Reilly Smith (upper body) will return from a six-game absence on Tuesday against Winnipeg. The veteran will make his 41st appearance of the campaign, looking to add to eight goals and 12 assists. Smith hasn't been consistent and enters Tuesday's action with a six-game scoreless streak. However, with him skating on the second line with Evgeni Malkin, there's always a chance Smith breaks out. He is also set for duty on the first power-play unit on Tuesday, which boosts his fantasy appeal even more.
Pittsburgh Penguins winger Reilly Smith is out "longer term" after suffering an upper-body injury in the first period of Thursday's overtime loss versus the Vancouver Canucks. The veteran skated just 3:08 in Thursday's game before departing for good. While Smith has a decent eight goals and 20 points across 40 games, he is in the midst of a miserable stretch that has seen him register just two goals over his last 27 games, including Thursday's abbreviated outing. His ice time has been down a little bit to 16:14 on the season but he has largely skated on the team's second line alongside star pivot Evgeni Malkin at even strength while seeing second-unit power play time on occasion. Drew O'Connor is the likeliest of candidates to take over the left-wing role on the Penguins' second line.
Pittsburgh Penguins winger Reilly Smith sustained an upper-body injury in Thursday's matchup against Vancouver. The veteran was forced to exit after taking only five shifts and logging 3:08 of ice time. Smith has notched eight goals and 20 points in 40 games this season, but he's gone cold lately, and Thursday marked his sixth consecutive outing without any points. Radim Zohorna will likely fill the open spot in the lineup in a bottom-six role if Smith won't be available for Saturday's meeting with the Hurricanes.
The Vegas Golden Knights have traded forward Reilly Smith to the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for a 2024 third-round draft pick. Smith carries a $5 million cap hit for the next two seasons as the 32-year-old is fresh off of a Stanley Cup championship with Vegas. The veteran winger collected the second-best point total of his career this past season, notching 26 goals and 56 points across 78 games while adding four goals and 14 points across 22 playoff contests. Smith should slide into the second-line left-wing spot with a Penguins club that failed to make the playoffs for the first time since the 2005-06 campaign.
