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.
