The Flames assume veteran defenseman Ladislav Smid will be healthy for training camp, but after a serious neck injury in January, it's anyone's guess.
If Smid is good to go, he will compete with Deryk Engelland for playing time on the Flames' third defense pairing. Calgary’s top-five is already set, with Mark Giordano, Dougie Hamilton, TJ Brodie, Kris Russell and Dennis Wideman occupying the key roles. Aug 15 - 10:31 AM

Ladislav Smid (undisclosed) has been placed on injured reserve.

Smid has suited up in Calgary's last two games after he was scratch for two matches before. His last shift of Monday's game against Los Angeles came with 10:05 left in the third period. It's unclear what is suffering from at this time.

Ladislav Smid returned to the Calgary lineup Saturday after being a healthy scratch the previous two games.

Smid had been having a tough time of things mentally as he had twins born prematurely just before Christmas. The good news is that his daughter is home and his son is expected home shortly and that has to help his mental state. Best of luck to the Smid family and congratulations on the birth of the twins. Smid has one assist this season in 30 games so we cannot recommend him in fantasy pools.

Ladislav Smid is slated to return to the Calgary lineup Saturday after missing Thursday's game as a healthy scratch.

Smid has actually missed the last two games. He has just one assist and a minus-12 rating in 29 games this season so he should not be in your lineup in traditional pools unless you are trying to lose.

Ladislav Smid, Mason Raymond and Markus Granlund are all scratched on Thursday against Arizona.

Smid has just one assist and a minus-12 rating in 29 games. Raymond has also struggled mightily this year. The Flames' forward has just eight points in 22 games this season, after scoring 45 points for Toronto one year ago. Granlund has 13 points in 31 games this season. Of the three players scratched tonight, only Raymond had some type of fantasy upside coming into the season.

Ladislav Smid will return to the Flames' lineup and skate with Deryk Engelland on their third defensive pairing Friday against Florida.

Smid is returning after missing ten games due to an upper body injury and his wife Ashley giving birth to twins. However only Engelland has any fantasy value with 37 PIMs, 58 blocks, and 60 hits in 35 games this season.
Jan 9 - 8:54 PM

Ladislav Smid (upper body) has been activated by the Flames.

Calgary also took Mikael Backlund off injured reserve for Wednesday's game against Detroit. Smid has missed the last nine games because of an upper-body injury. To make room for them on their roster, the Flames sent Markus Granlund and Corey Potter to the minors.
Jan 7 - 2:09 PM

Ladislav Smid (upper body) probably won't return to the Calgary Flames' lineup on Wednesday.

Smid is getting close to returning though. When he is ready to go it might be Raphael Diaz that finds himself out of the lineup.
Jan 5 - 3:02 PM

Ladislav Smid (upper body) is getting close to returning to action and is expected to be at practice Sunday.

Smid was injured on December 12 and has not played since. If you are looking for a fantasy relevant player, then look elsewhere as Smid has one assist in 28 games with a minus-nine rating. He could return as early as Wednesday when the Flames next play.

Ladislav Smid (upper body) took part in Thursday's practice.

Flames coach Bob Hartley predicted that Smid would return "fairly soon." When he does, Raphael Diaz might find himself out of the lineup.
Jan 2 - 8:58 AM

Ladislav Smid (upper body) is projected to resume skating on Monday.

Smid has been out for six straight games due to the injury. Meanwhile, his wife has given birth to twins. "Lady has no more pain — he can start to skate again — but we gave him permission to take care of the babies," Flames head coach Bob Hartley said on Sunday. "He should be back tomorrow morning, hopefully, with the cigars." Congratulations to Smid and his growing family!

The Calgary Flames placed defenseman Ladislav Smid on injured reserve on Saturday.

He appears to have been shaken up by a hit via Pittsburgh Penguins blueliner Simon Despres. There's no word on the exact extent of his upper-body injury, though going on IR keeps him out for some time.
Sat, Dec 13, 2014 05:15:00 PM

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.
