The Blackhawks have acquired Zack Smith from the Senators for Artem Anisimov.
Smith had a career-year in 2016, scoring 25 goals with 11 assists (36 points) but has just 14 goals and 33 assists (47 points) in the last two seasons combined. With RFA Brendan Perlini still in need of a contract, the Blackhawks clear $1.3M by swapping Anisimov for Smith. The 31-year-old probably doesn’t have the same offensive upside as Anisimov, but should settle in as a quality bottom-6 option for Chicago, who has completely re-tooled that part of their roster this offseason.
Smith (back) will not play Saturday in Edmonton.
Smith will not play on Sunday because of a facial fracture.
The Senators have placed Zack Smith on waivers.
Smith has three-years left on his contract, that has a modified no-trade clause. Placing him on waivers may be a way around the no-trade, but Smith is one of the better forwards on a bad Senators team and giving him away for nothing seems counterproductive. The 30-year-old had 19 points (5G / 14A) in 68 games a season ago.
Smith (shoulder) will be back in the Senators lineup on Friday.
Smith has missed the last five games with a shoulder injury, but will return tonight vs. the Sharks. Smith has struggled this season, picking up just eight points (2G / 8A) with an ugly minus-15 rating in 24 games.
