  • Stars' Craig Smith: Supplies assist

    Smith logged an assist, two shots on goal and four hits in Sunday's 2-1 win over the Golden Knights in Game 7.

    Smith set up Radek Faksa's third-period tally, which was the game-winner. After being a scratch for the first two contests of the playoffs, Smith contributed two helpers, 10 shots on net, eight hits and a plus-1 rating over the last five games of the first round. The 34-year-old winger should continue to play in a fourth-line role when he's in the lineup.

  • Stars' Craig Smith: Picks up helper

    Smith recorded an assist in Monday's 4-2 win over the Golden Knights in Game 4.

    Smith began the postseason as a healthy scratch when the Stars were at full health, but he's drawn into the last two games due to the absences of Mason Marchment (undisclosed) and Radek Faksa (undisclosed). The 34-year-old Smith will likely continue to see fourth-line usage until the Stars are healthy again. Smith put up 20 points, 112 shots on net and 51 hits over 75 regular-season appearances in a similar role.

  • Stars' Craig Smith: Hands out pair of helpers

    Smith notched two assists and went plus-2 in Wednesday's 5-0 win over the Oilers.

    Smith ended a four-game point drought by helping out on goals from linemates Radek Faksa and Sam Steel. Playing in a fourth-line role has put some limits on Smith's offense, but he's done alright with 19 points through 70 contests. He's added 104 shots on net, 46 hits, 29 PIM and a plus-4 rating.

  • Stars' Craig Smith: Pockets assist in win

    Smith logged an assist in Friday's 4-2 win over the Penguins.

    Smith's point streak is up to four games (three goals, one assist) after he set up a Sam Steel tally in the third period Friday. The 34-year-old Smith has 17 points, 100 shots on net, 44 hits, 25 PIM, 25 blocked shots and a plus-2 rating over 65 appearances. He remains in a bottom-six role, but his offense lately should be enough to keep him in the lineup over Ty Dellandrea.

  • Stars' Craig Smith: Goals in three straight games

    Smith scored a goal in Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Coyotes.

    This was Smith's third straight game with a goal, an impressive run for a fourth-line winger. The 34-year-old reached the 10-goal mark with his insurance tally in the third period. He's up to 16 points, 99 shots on net, 43 hits, 25 PIM and a plus-1 rating through 64 appearances. With Tyler Seguin (lower body) back in the mix, competition between Smith, Radek Faksa, Sam Steel and Ty Dellandrea for fourth-line minutes is likely to increase again.

  • Stars' Craig Smith: Scores again Saturday

    Smith scored a goal on three shots and went plus-2 in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Kings.

    Smith's offense has been a little more lively than usual lately -- he has two goals and two assists over his last six outings. The 34-year-old winger remains in a fourth-line role, but he's at least been chipping in on offense. For the season, he's up to nine goals, 15 points, 98 shots on net, 43 hits, 25 PIM and a plus-1 rating over 63 appearances.

  • Stars' Craig Smith: Deposits goal Thursday

    Smith scored a goal on four shots and added three hits in Thursday's 6-2 loss to the Devils.

    Smith snapped a 12-game goal drought, during which he had two assists. The 34-year-old winger is up to eight goals, 14 points, 95 shots on net, 42 hits, 25 PIM and a minus-1 rating through 62 appearances. While he's been in the lineup a majority of the time, Smith exclusively plays on the fourth line and hasn't produced enough offense to make up for that unfriendly role in fantasy.

  • Stars' Craig Smith: Provides helper in win

    Smith registered an assist in Saturday's 4-1 win over the Kings.

    Smith was scratched Friday versus the Ducks when the Stars dressed seven defensemen, but he was back in the lineup in a more traditional alignment Saturday. The 34-year-old winger has had the occasional trip to the press box this season, likely a product of the Stars enjoying good health among their forwards. He has two helpers in his last three games to give him 13 points, 88 shots on net, 39 hits and 25 PIM through 60 appearances this campaign.

  • Stars' Craig Smith: Garners assist

    Smith notched an assist and three hits in Saturday's 3-2 shootout win over the Sharks.

    Smith had gone eight games without a point entering Saturday. His shot led to a second chance for Radek Faksa to bury early in the second period. The helper gave Smith 12 points through 58 outings. He has also added 87 shots on net, 38 hits and a plus-1 rating. The 34-year-old winger remains in a fourth-line role, though the Stars' tight cap situation makes it questionable if they'll acquire any forward depth ahead of Friday's trade deadline.

  • Stars' Craig Smith: Tallies game-winner in blowout

    Smith scored a goal on four shots and added two hits in Thursday's 9-2 win over the Predators.

    Smith scored at 12:31 of the first period, and that goal held as the game-winner, his first such goal this season. The winger has 11 points, 78 shots on net, 25 PIM and a plus-5 rating through 49 outings while playing on the fourth line. He's got some safety in the lineup while Evgenii Dadonov (lower body) is out, but Smith's spot could be in danger if the Stars opt to call up a prospect eventually.

  • Stars' Craig Smith: Nabs assist in win

    Smith recorded an assist in Tuesday's 2-1 win over the Sabres.

    Smith has been steady in limited action lately, racking up five points and 14 shots on goal over his last 10 games. He's averaged just 9:39 of ice time per contests in that span. The 34-year-old winger is up to 10 points, 73 shots, 25 hits, 22 blocked shots, 23 PIM and a plus-4 rating through 46 outings overall as a fixture on the fourth line.

  • Stars' Craig Smith: Scores in return

    Smith scored a goal in Thursday's 4-3 overtime win over the Ducks.

    Smith missed one game with an upper-body injury, but he was able to step into his usual fourth-line role after the brief absence. He saw just 10:39 of ice time, making the most of it by scoring a goal in the second period. The winger has four points over his last eight outings, which constitutes one of his better stretches of the season. Overall, Smith has six goals, three assists, 69 shots on net, 22 hits, 21 blocked shots, 23 PIM and a plus-4 rating through 44 contests.

  • Stars' Craig Smith: Good to play Thursday

    Smith (upper body) will draw into the lineup against Anaheim on Thursday, per Mike Heika of the Stars' official site.

    Smith, who missed Tuesday's 5-4 win over Detroit, has five goals, eight points, 23 PIM, 22 hits and 20 blocks in 43 contests this season. He's projected to play on the fourth line alongside Evgenii Dadonov and Radek Faksa.

  • Stars' Craig Smith: Sidelined with upper-body issue

    Smith (upper body) won't play Tuesday versus Detroit, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.

    Smith has picked up just eight points through 43 contests this season, so fantasy managers shouldn't need to track his status. Look for Ty Dellandrea to replace Smith in the lineup against the Red Wings.

  • Stars' Craig Smith: Injured Sunday

    Smith suffered an upper-body injury Sunday against the Islanders, Mike Heika of the Stars' official site reports.

    Head coach Pete DeBoer did not have an update on Smith's status after the game. Smith logged just 3:44 of ice time prior to exiting the game. He'll be considered questionable for Tuesday's game in Detroit until more information is available.

  • Stars' Craig Smith: Pots goal Saturday

    Smith scored a goal on four shots in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Devils.

    Smith has picked up the pace lately with three points and nine shots on net over his last six outings. The 34-year-old winger is still unlikely to see much more than fourth-line usage, though he had 1:17 of power-play ice time Saturday with Mason Marchment (illness) out. Smith has produced eight points, 68 shots on net, 23 PIM, 22 hits, 20 blocked shots and a plus-3 rating over 42 contests this season.

  • Stars' Craig Smith: Snags assist

    Smith notched an assist in Tuesday's 5-1 win over the Kings.

    Smith has two helpers over his last four games. The 34-year-old winger will make the occasional scoring contribution, but his offense is predictably limited in a fourth-line role. Overall, he's managed seven points, 64 shots on net, 23 PIM and 21 hits through 40 outings this season.

  • Stars' Craig Smith: Generates helper Wednesday

    Smith logged an assist, four shots on goal and a plus-2 rating in Wednesday's 7-2 win over the Wild.

    Smith snapped a four-game dry spell by helping out on Sam Steel's tally late in the third period. The 34-year-old Smith continues to log steady shifts on the fourth line, offering little in the way of fantasy upside. He has six points, 63 shots on net, 23 PIM and a plus-4 rating through 37 appearances.

  • Stars' Craig Smith: Finds twine in blowout win

    Smith scored a goal on three shots and went plus-2 in Sunday's 8-1 win over the Blackhawks.

    This was Smith's second goal over the last four games. Prior to that stretch, he went 16 contests without a point. The 34-year-old winger has remained firmly in a fourth-line role this season, though he is at risk of the occasional scratch when the Stars' forward group is fully healthy, as it is heading into January. Smith has just five points with 54 shots on net, 19 hits, 21 PIM and a plus-3 rating over 32 outings this season.
