Ladislav Smid left Friday night's game during the first period in Pittsburgh after he received what looked like a forearm to his chin from Simon Despres.

"It looked like a forearm or something to the head," said Flames Captain Mark Giordano. Smid was hunched over attempting to play the puck behind the offensive goal line when Despres met him. There was no penalty called on the play. Smid played only 8:33.

Ladislav Smid (mouth) took part in Calgary's season opener.

Smid needed to have a few teeth pulled in late September due to an infection, but it's not surprising that he was available for the start of 2014-15. He had two shots on goal and a minus-one rating in 16:10 minutes of ice time.

Ladislav Smid is back skating after spending time in the dentist's chair.

Smid suffered through an infected tooth that apparently was so bad that the dentist needed to extract a few teeth including the infected one. Smid should be ready for opening night but should not be on your fantasy radar unless you need penalty minutes from a defenseman as he should pick up only 8-12 points.

Ladislav Smid scored his first goal as a member of the Calgary Flames on Wednesday.

Calgary got Smid from Edmonton in November. He's a defensive defenseman, so it's rare for him to find the back of the net. In fact, he has just 12 goals in 522 career contests.

Ladislav Smid returned to practice on Sunday after participating in the Olympic Games.

Smid played for the Czech Republic and was eliminated in the quarter-finals by the United States. "Awesome experience," Smid said. "Obviously, disappointed we lost in the quarter-finals, but overall it was a dream come true. I dreamt about it since I was little — to represent my country. It finally happened. I'm really proud of it. A lot of emotional games. I'm glad I went through it." Smid has only one goal and four points with 64 penalty minutes this season.

Ladislav Smid suited up as the Czech Republic's seventh defenseman during Wednesday's loss to Sweden.

He didn't get any playing time during the 4-2 loss. Smid suffered a lower-body injury before heading to Sochi, but that's probably not the reason why he didn't get any shifts in the contest.
