Washington Capitals

The Devils placed Devante Smith-Pelly on waivers for the purpose of a buyout.

Smith-Pelly had one year left on his contract that carried a $1.3M cap-hit. Smith-Pelly’s buyout will save the Devils $1.125M against the cap this season. The former second round pick (No.42 in 2010) has had a tough time producing at the NHL-level and now could be headed for his fourth team in four years.

The Devils have signed Devante Smith-Pelly to a two-year deal worth $2.6 million ($1.3M AAV).

Smith-Pelly, 24, was acquired by the Devils from Montreal at the trade deadline and played really well for New Jersey. Smith-Pelly had just 12 points (6G / 6A) in 46 games with the Habs before the trade, but collected 13 points (8G / 5A) in only 18 games following the trade. D.S.P could find himself on a top-line with Adam Henrique and the newest Devil Taylor Hall.

Smith-Pelly to replace Gallagher (hand) on the Canadiens' top line.

Smith-Pelly missed Sunday’s game with a lower-body injury, but he is expected to play on the top line in Wednesday’s game. Smith-Pelly is a big body, who has one goal and five assists in 21 games this season. This definitely bumps DSP’s fantasy value, but there is no saying how long he will play on the top line.
