The Senators signed Zack Smith to a four-year deal worth $13 million.
Smith is on pace to score fewer goals than last season (25), but is on-pace to have 20 goals, 20 assists (40 points), which would be a career-high for the 28-year-old. Smith is signed through the 2021 season.
Smith will miss the next two games with an abdominal strain.
Smith left Tuesday’s game with an injury and the Senators announced that he will miss at least two games with an abdominal strain. With Smith out, the Senators have recalled Casey Bailey from Binghamton (AHL) to take his spot.
Smith left Tuesday’s game with an upper-body injury and did not return.
Smith scored one goal in 8:20 TOI before leaving the game with an upper-body injury. With Smith banged up, the Senators have recalled Casey Bailey from Binghamton (AHL), in case the 28-year-old can’t play on Thursday.
Smith will be back in the Senators lineup in Game 4.
Smith was a healthy scratch for the first three games of the series, but he will replace David Legwand in the lineup for Game 4. Smith had two goals and one assist in 37 games this season. He missed most of the year with a dislocated wrist.
Smith (wrist) will be back in the Senators lineup on Monday.
Smith went to the AHL for a conditioning stint and scored one goal and one assist with Binghamton (AHL). Tonight will be Smith’s first game since December 13th. Smith has two goals and one assist in 27 games with the Senators this season.
