  • Devils' Brendan Smith: Big three-point effort carries win

    Smith had a goal and two assists in a 4-3 win over Ottawa on Saturday.

    He wired a slap shot from the point that went high glove in the first period that pushed the score to 3-0. Smith has goals in back-to-back games to give a total of five on the season. He has 14 points, 91 blocked shots, 108 hits and 54 shots on net in 58 appearances this campaign. Smith isn't much of a fantasy force, but it's been a productive couple of games for him.

  • Devils' Brendan Smith: Good to go Friday

    Smith (undisclosed) is in Friday's lineup against the Ducks, Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site reports.

    Smith was a game-time call for Friday's contest but won't be forced to miss any game action. The 35-year-old has nine points in 41 games this season, including four in his last five appearances.

  • Devils' Brendan Smith: Questionable for Friday

    Smith (undisclosed) is considered questionable for Friday's contest against Anaheim, per Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.

    Smith has three goals, nine points, 47 PIM, 81 hits and 55 blocks in 41 outings with New Jersey this season. If he can't play Friday, then perhaps Nick DeSimone will make his Devils debut after being claimed off waivers from Calgary on Jan. 25.

  • Devils' Brendan Smith: Lights lamp Tuesday

    Smith contributed a goal in the Devils' four-goal blitz over 5:16 during the third period. The 35-year-old Smith has four points over his last five appearances. He's up to nine points, 40 shots on net, 81 hits, 55 blocked shots, 47 PIM and a plus-2 rating through 41 appearances.

  • Devils' Brendan Smith: Goal, assist in Stadium Series

    Smith notched a goal and an assist in Saturday's 6-3 Stadium Series win over the Flyers.

    Smith picked up an assist on Tyler Toffoli's first-period marker before extending New Jersey's lead to 3-1 in the second, swiping a rebound past Samuel Ersson for his second goal of the campaign. It's just the second multi-point game of the year for Smith, who had gone scoreless in his previous two contests since returning from a 10-game IR stint. The 35-year-old blueliner now has seven points, 73 hits and 50 blocked shots in a third-pairing role with the Devils this season.

  • Devils' Brendan Smith: Removed from IR

    Smith (knee) was activated from injured reserve Tuesday, per the NHL media site.

    Smith, who has missed the past 10 games, will be an option for Tuesday's contest against Nashville. If he plays, Santeri Hatakka or Colin Miller could be scratched. Smith has five points, 47 PIM, 42 blocked shots and 67 hits in 34 outings this season.

  • Devils' Brendan Smith: Not playing Saturday

    Smith (knee) will not play in Carolina on Saturday, per Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.

    Smith was injured in the first period in Boston on Jan. 15 and has missed the last eight games. The good news is that coach Lindy Ruff said Smith is day-to-day. Smith could return to the lineup as early as Monday when the Devils host Seattle.

  • Devils' Brendan Smith: Lands on IR

    Smith (knee) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.

    Smith's placement on IR was made retroactive to Monday, so he'll be eligible to return next Thursday against the Hurricanes, although it remains to be seen if he'll be healthy enough to play in that contest. With Smith on the shelf, Santeri Hatakka was promoted from AHL Utica on Thursday.

  • Devils' Brendan Smith: Unavailable Wednesday

    Smith is dealing with a sprained knee and will miss "a little bit of time" as a result, coach Lindy Ruff told Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site on Wednesday.

    Smith has a goal, five points, 48 hits and 42 blocks in 34 games this season. He sustained the injury during Monday's 3-0 loss to Boston. With Smith unavailable Wednesday versus Montreal, Cal Foote is projected to make his Devils debut after being recalled from AHL Utica on Tuesday.

  • Devils' Brendan Smith: Sustains leg injury

    Smith exited Monday's 3-0 loss to Boston because of a leg injury, according to Amanda Stein of the Devils' official site.

    Smith will be evaluated when the team gets back to New Jersey. He logged just 2:43 of ice time prior to leaving Monday's contest. If Smith can't play Wednesday versus Montreal, Cal Foote could make his New Jersey debut.

  • Devils' Brendan Smith: Scores goal Friday

    Smith found the back of the net in a 6-2 victory over Ottawa on Friday.

    Smith's marker came early in the third period to increase New Jersey's lead to 5-1. It was his first goal and third point in 27 contests this season. The 34-year-old defenseman is unlikely to pick up the pace offensively, but he is noteworthy in terms of hits and blocks with 42 and 32, respectively, in 2023-24.

  • Devils' Brendan Smith: Fined maximum amount

    Smith was fined $2.864.58 for his dangerous trip to Seattle's Devin Shore on Thursday.

    Smith returned to action Thursday after serving a two-game suspension for slashing Travis Konecny of the Flyers Nov. 30. Smith has only two assists in 22 games this season.

  • Devils' Brendan Smith: Eligible to play Thursday

    Smith has served his two-game suspension and will be available against Seattle on Thursday.

    Smith's return will likely see youngster Simon Nemec returned to the minors considering Smith had played in all 21 games prior to his suspension. The 34-year-old Smith is averaging just 14:43 of ice time and has never reached the 20-point threshold in his career, so he shouldn't be expected to offer much in the way of fantasy value.

  • Devils' Brendan Smith: Handed two-game suspension

    Smith received a two-game suspension from the Department of Player Safety on Friday for slashing Travis Konecny during Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over Philadelphia.

    Smith was acting in retaliation after Konecny cross-checked him. Konecny received a fine for his part in the incident. Smith won't be eligible to play Friday against San Jose or Tuesday versus Vancouver, but he can return Thursday against the Kraken. The 34-year-old has two assists, 32 PIM, 35 hits and 19 blocks in 21 contests this season. The suspension is likely to lead to Colin Miller remaining in the lineup. Miller might have otherwise been a healthy scratch because Simon Nemec was summoned from AHL Utica on Friday with an eye toward him making his NHL debut in the evening's game versus the Sharks.

  • Devils' Brendan Smith: Set for disciplinary hearing

    Smith will have a hearing with the Department of Player Safety on Friday after he slashed Travis Konecny in Thursday's game versus the Flyers.

    Smith's actions appear to have risen to the level of supplemental discipline. He took a minor penalty on the play in the third period. If Smith is suspended, the Devils would likely need to make a roster move, as they'd have only five healthy defensemen on the roster.

  • Devils' Brendan Smith: Still searching for first point

    Smith had two blocked shots and a plus-1 rating in Thursday's 5-3 win over the Wild.

    Smith has played in each of New Jersey's first nine games but has yet to get on the scoresheet. The lack of offense isn't surprising considering the veteran blueliner had just five assists without a goal in 60 games last season. Despite all the talent around him, Smith's stay-at-home role limits his fantasy utility.
