NHL CapHit: $4,350,000 Puckpedia Profile

The Rangers have signed Brendan Smith to a four-year extension worth $17.4M ($4.35M AAV).

Smith only played in 51 games in 2016-17, including 18 with the Rangers after being acquired at the trade deadline. He averaged a career-high 20:10 TOI/GM in New York and will be leaned on as a second-pairing defenseman in 2017-18. Smith has a career-best of 19 points (in 2013-14).

The Rangers have acquired Brendan Smith from the Red Wings for a second and third round pick.

Smith has spent the first six and a half seasons of his NHL career with the Red Wings but the pending unrestricted free agent has been traded because the Red Wings are selling contracts as their 25-year playoff streak appears to be coming to an end. Smith never really developed into the offensive force the Red Wings were hoping when they picked him in the first round in 2007. Smith won’t be in the lineup on Tuesday and has just two goals and three assists (five points) in 33 games this season.

Smith (knee) returned to practice on Thursday; not expected to return until after the All-Star break.

Smith has missed the last seven games with a knee injury, but returned to the ice on Thursday. Despite his return, Smith is likely a few weeks away from returning to the lineup. Look for the Red Wing defenseman to return after the All-Star break.

Smith will miss approximately four weeks with a knee injury.

Smith was injured midway through the Red Wings’ overtime loss to the Canadiens on Saturday. The Red Wings are already without Alexey Marchenko, so expect them to recall a defenseman from Grand Rapids (AHL), but for Xavier Ouellet to get back into the lineup for Tuesday’s game.
