Jerred Smithson was assigned to the Marlies of the AHL Sunday.

He was no longer needed with the return to action of Tyler Bozak. Smithson wasn't much of a fantasy factor so this move really should not shift the balance of power in hockey pools.

Jerred Smithson has been summoned by the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Smithson has two points and 10 penalty minutes in 10 AHL games. The 34-year-old forward also has nine penalty minutes and a minus-four rating in 13 contests with the Maple Leafs in 2013-14.

Jerred Smithson has been placed on waivers by the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Smithson has no points and eight penalty minutes in 13 games this season. The 34-year-old has played in 601 NHL games, but at this point he should be regarded as an organizational depth forward.

Jerred Smithson will probably center Toronto's fourth line Friday night when the Leafs host the New Jersey Devils.

If he does play then it will mark his season and Leafs debut. Smithson won't help out many fantasy owners, but he is very good at faceoffs. The 34-year-old center is the oldest player on the team.

Jerred Smithson has agreed to terms with Toronto for what's left of the 2013-14 campaign.

Smithson has a goal in seven AHL games this season. He has no fantasy value in standard leagues.

Jerred Smithson has agreed to a tryout contract with AHL's Toronto Marlies.

The Leafs have plenty of Marlies up with the big club right now due to injuries and suspension, so Smithson will add some depth for the organization. He skated in 45 games between the Edmonton Oilers and Florida Panthers last season.

Jerred Smith, acquired by Edmonton for a fourth-round draft pick this week, likely will be in the Oilers' lineup when they play the Kings in Los Angeles this afternoon.

Smithson, a left winger, recorded five points in 35 games for the Panthers this season.

Florida has traded Jerred Smithson to Edmonton for a fourth-round draft pick.

He recorded five points in 35 games for the Panthers this season.

With Kris Versteeg returning to aciton Friday night against Winnipeg, Jerred Smithson found himself in the press box.

And barring any Florida injuries, that's where he will likely be for the foreseeable future. We trust Smithson was not a nig part of your fantasy strategy.

Jerred Smithson scored for the first time since Oct. 15, 2011, on Saturday night.

The 34-year-old had spent a number of years with Nashville before heading to Florida last year for the playoff run. He'd like to find himself on the score sheet more often. "I want to score more, I would like to do it more, but they seem to have come few and far between. It felt good," Smithson said. The forward has only 37 goals in 556 NHL games, so he's obviously not anywhere near fantasy radars.

Jerred Smithson is preparing himself for a roster spot with the Florida Panthers this off-season.

"I'm still learning and having to prove myself every year, which is a good thing," he told the Vernon Morning Star after a workout session. "It keeps me motivated and on my toes. It seems like every year I have to go in and earn my job. I'm not going to get complacent and I want to prove to people I can still play and be effective out there." He skated in 16 regular season games and five playoff contests with the Panthers last season after being traded by Nashville. Smithson wants to stay on the team's active roster, but he'll face stiff competition from some of Florida's prospects as well as other off-season acquisitions. He also said that he wants to impress because he will be an unrestricted free agent next summer.

According to coach Kevin Dineen, Jered Smithson is likely to take the place of scratched Wojtek Wolski in Game 4.

Smithson has played just once since March 29 and did not dress in either of the first two games of the series. He joined the Panthers at the trade deadline and recorded one assist in 16 games and totaled 1-5-6 in 69 matches between Florida and Nashville. Smithson is 2-1-3 in 31 career games.

Jerred Smithson has been outstanding on faceoffs since coming over to Florida in a trade with Nashville.

He has emerged victorious on 36 of the 59 draws he has taken for a 61 percent success rate. When his faceoffs as a member of the Predators are added to the equation, Smithson has 56.1 winning percentage on a total of 572. Unfortunately outside of that category, he doesn't bring much to the table in terms of fantasy value aside from his 107 hits.

The Florida Panthers are hoping that new addition Jerred Smithson can help aid their sagging penalty kill.

He is responsible defensively and can win faceoffs. The Panthers are ranked 24th in the league in penalty kill efficiency, but they are fifth in the NHL for the fewest times shorthanded and have surrendered a power-play goal in four straight contests. Florida's PK should benefit from the returns of Jason Garrison, Marcel Goc and John Madden as well.
