Smith (undisclosed) is expected to be back in the Predators lineup on Monday.
Smith missed Saturday’s game in Carolina, but was back on the ice this morning and appears set to play vs. the Coyotes. Smith has had a very difficult season, collecting just 18 points (9G / 9A) across 68 games.
Smith is expected to be a healthy scratch on Tuesday.
Smith has just one goal in his last 24 games and is expected to be replaced by Mike Ribeiro in the lineup on Tuesday. Smith skated as an extra this morning and stayed on the ice with the scratches, so expect him to sit.
