Zack Smith has been extremely effective in the faceoff dot over the Senators' last three games.

He has won 42 of 59 draws for 71 percent success rate and pushed his season total success rate to 53.3 percent. If you pool tracks faceoffs, Smith is a pretty valuable guy to have.

Zack Smith scored his sixth goal of the season on Saturday.

Smith is a nice combination of some points and penalty minutes as he has 10 points and has 53 minutes in penalties. It's a surprisingly good season for the 25-year-old as he also has three game winning goals. If you need minutes, Smith could be your guy.

Zack Smith might hear from the league for his hit on St. Louis forward Alexander Steen.

Smith was assessed a two-minute penalty for an illegal check to the head Monday night. Steen exited for the dressing room after the collision, but he did return. Smith finished the game with four penalty minutes and two shots.

Zack Smith recorded the game-winning goal in Thursday's 2-1 victory against Buffalo.

He has produced five goals and nine points in 33 games this season. Smith is capable of chipping in some points, but he should only be on your radar if you're in a deep league that also counts penalty minutes and hits.

Zack Smith netted his first goal of the season in Ottawa's 3-2 defeat on Saturday.

It was Smith's 25th goal in 204 career NHL games. He'll give you a bit more than a penalty minute per contest, but Smith doesn't do too much offensively.

Zack Smith could end up playing on the wing again this season.

"I played a bit of wing last year, and might do it a bit more, with the amount of center men we have," Smith said. Mika Zibanejad and Jean-Gabriel Pageau might get Ottawa's bottom-six center jobs going into the season. Even if he does line up on the wing, Smith will probably still get his fair share of faceoffs after he posted a 51.8 percent winning percentage on 731 draws last year.

Zack Smith opened the scoring in Game 5 Thursday night.

His first career postseason goal came just over two minutes into the opening period on a juicy rebound in front of Montreal starter Peter Budaj. Smith was credited with nine hits and 15 penalty minutes (all of which came in one game) in Ottawa's first-round series.

Zack Smith has netted three goals in his last seven games after going 23 straight contests without a marker to open the year.

He has also added two assists during his recent goal-scoring surge. Smith has 13 points and 32 penalty minutes along with 57 hits in 30 games this campaign.

Zack Smith skated on the Senators' first line Friday night and he proved worthy of the opportunity scoring a goal.

Smith centered Daniel Alfredsson and Milan Michalek on the top unit while Kyle Turris moved down to play on the team's second line. Obviously, if Smith, who has scored in two consecutive games, can keep this gig his fantasy value increases siginificantly.

Zack Smith potted a goal and added an assist but it wasn't enough as the Senators fell to the Maple Leafs 5-4 on Wednesday night.

Smith is more of an agitative type with limited offensive capabilities. The 24-year-old's goal was just his first in 24 games this season. Colin Greening, Daniel Alfredsson and Mika Zibanejad were the others to find the back of the net. Erik Condra had two assists.

After 16 games, Ottawa's Zack Smith is still looking for his first goal of the season.

He hasn't found the back of the net since March 10, 2012, which equates to a stretch of 29 games. Smith has collected five assists and 22 penalty minutes this year.

Zack Smith didn't participate in Monday's practice for "maintenance," according to the Senators.

Coach Paul MacLean said Smith was dealing with a "lower body" problem, which was caused by a blocked a shot against Pittsburgh on Sunday. Smith has one assist, 11 shots and seven penalty minutes in five games this season. We'll list him as active for now.

Zack Smith left Wednesday evening for Denmark, where he has agreed to play for the Frederikshavn White Hawks.

"It's obviously below some of the elite leagues like Sweden and the KHL, but from what I'm told it's about equivalent to the Slovakian league, not quite as good as the Finnish league," said Smith referring to the AL-Bank Ligae. "It'll be good." Smith had 26 points and 98 penalty minutes in 81 games with Ottawa last season.

According to Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun, Zack Smith looks like he will sign with the Frederikshavn White Hawks to play in the AL-Bank Ligae.

His Senators teammate Colin Greening plays for the Aalborg Pirates of the Danish League, so he could be in store for some friendly competition overseas. Smith received a four-year contract extension from Ottawa back in September.
