Brendan Smith might find himself playing a bigger role for bench boss Jeff Blashill than he did under former coach Mike Babcock.
In particular, Smith might get regular minutes with the man advantage last season after averaging just 0:13 minutes per contests in 2014-15. "I think Brendan’s best offensive ability is roaming around below the tops of the circles," Blashill said. "If he's a weak-side guy on a power play, going to the net lots, he can retreat pucks because he's quick and he’s strong and he’s competitive. He's got good offensive instincts once he gets below tops of circles. I know at (the university of) Wisconsin he was on his off-side hitting one-timers." Smith had four goals and 13 points in 76 contests last season, but he was a much bigger contributor offensively at the AHL and NCAA levels. Jul 17 - 10:46 AM
