There's mutual interest between Zack Smith and the Senators to work out a new contract.

Smith is eligible for unrestricted free agency after the season. "I want to be here. My plans haven’t been to be anywhere else and we’ve made that clear," Smith said. "We’re pretty confident we’ll get something done here." GM Pierre Dorion has also confirmed that he met with Smith's agent Allain Roy on Jan. 17th when the club was in St. Louis. Word is that the two sides are working on a deal that's four years in length. The 28-year-old is in the final season of his current four-year pact which is worth $7.75M. He has scored 49 goals and 80 points while winning 51.8% of his draws and throwing 488 hits over that span, in which he's been healthy for three of those campaigns. More to come.

Zack Smith earned a goal and an assist in Ottawa's 5-3 win over Edmonton on Sunday.

Smith was playing for the second time in two nights after recovering from an abdominal injury. He was playing well with Derick Brassard and Mark Stone before he got hurt and it looks like that will continue. Smith could be worthy of a waiver add.

Zack Smith will play in Saturday's game against the Washington Capitals.

The Senators are hoping that Zack Smith will be able to return from his abdominal injury this coming Saturday.

Jan 1 - 11:34 AM

Zack Smith was placed on I/R on Thursday by the Senators with an abdominal injury.

The 28-year-old now has seven goals and 13 points this season, five of which have come in a span of 24 hours. Smith has two points in Saturday's game against New Jersey, and carried his hot stick into Sunday's match. Smith factored into five of the Sens' nine goals in their two wins this weekend.

Zack Smith scored his fourth goal of the season during Saturday's 4-1 loss to the Kings.

It's been a disappointing season for the pivot, who has just eight points in 28 games this season. Can he turn it around? Well, he's done it before at least.

Zack Smith will return from his undisclosed injury to face the Sabres on Saturday.

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."
