Smith has two goals and three points with 17 PIMs and 22 hits on the season through 10 games. We'd expect much more of the same from the veteran center.

Zack Smith didn't take part in Ottawa's practice on Friday.

He blocked a shot on Thursday's game against the Canucks and it's unclear if he'll be able to play against the Sabres on Saturday. Mark Stone (neck) and Chris Wideman (upper body) may have to sit out as well. "I won’t know until (Saturday) to be honest with you," head coach Guy Boucher said on Friday. "Goaltender-wise we don’t know. Wideman is day-to-day. Stone hopeful for tomorrow. Smitty we’ll see (Saturday). It’s bruises I would say but some bruises are bigger than others."

Zack Smith has a deep bruise on his foot from blocking a shot, but it isn't expected to sideline him for very long.

"It gets better every day. It's his foot and it's not broken. We thought it was worse. It's not," explained coach Guy Boucher. "They've done all the test. It's just nasty and it hurts. If it was playoffs he'd probably be playing. We'll rest him and hopefully by Friday he'll be ready to go." He didn't travel with the team for Tuesday's game in Saskatoon against Toronto.
Oct 4 - 10:40 AM

Zack Smith is ready to resume his checking, shutdown role with the Senators in 2016-17.

"That's where I want to be and if there needs to be a spot filled in on the top six, I think I've shown that I can fill in there," said Smith. He gained a great deal of confidence last season when he was given a chance to move up the depth chart due to injuries to Clarke MacArthur and Kyle Turris. If he gets that opportunity again then he could be worth looking at, but going into the season he shouldn't be on your radar.
