Devante Smith-Pelly scored his first goal in 18 games with the Canadiens on Sunday versus Florida.

He was promoted to a line with P.A. Parenteau and David Desharnais in the contest. Smith-Pelly has two points since joining Montreal from Anaheim and coach Michel Therrien plans to use him more on the power play. "He was a presence in front on the power play," Therrien said.

Malhotra will sit for a fourth straight game and has played in 57 games this season, picking up a goal and three assists.

Devante Smith-Pelly will be a healthy scratch Saturday night against Florida.

Mar 8 - 9:31 AM

Devante Smith-Pelly enjoyed his first home game as a member of the Montreal Canadiens.

"This is a whole new level," said Smith-Pelly. "The guys gave me a bit of a heads-up but until I got there I didn't know what to expect. But I think I'm going to like it here." The 22-year-old had no points, two hits and a blocked shot in just over 13 minutes of ice time in Saturday's 4-0 win over Toronto.
Mar 1 - 9:25 AM

Devante Smith-Pelly and MIke Weaver will be scratched on Tuesday night against the St. Louis Blues.

Through 54 games with the Anaheim Ducks, Smith-Pelly amassed 17 points and 147 hits, sharing the team lead with Nate Thompson. The 23 year old forward has just 14 goals and 40 points through his first 154 career games, but also has 315 hits already to hit credit. Pencil him in for more of the same north of the border once he enters the lineup on Thursday versus Columbus.

The Montreal Canadiens have acquired Devante Smith-Pelly from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for Jiri Sekac.

Smith-Pelly has five goals and 17 points in 54 contests this season. He's got plenty of offensive upside, but he hasn't been able to bring it all together at the NHL level with the Ducks. Perhaps the change of scenery will do him some good.
Feb 24 - 10:41 AM

Devante Smith-Pelly is skating on Anaheim's top line during the pre-game warmup.

The Ducks are hosting the Washington Capitals tonight and Smith-Pelly is on a line with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry. This is big news for Smith-Pelly who should get a big fantasy boost by playing with two world-class players. The 22-year-old has five goals and 16 points in 49 games this season.
Feb 15 - 7:44 PM

Devante Smith-Pelly and Colby Robak will be scratched against the Vancouver Canucks on Tuesday night.

With just four goals and 15 points through 41 games this season. DSP has certainly been a disappointment to both Coach Boudreau and his fantasy owners. However, if you're in a league that rewards his 110 hits handsomely, you should keep him on your squad. This will be his second consecutive benching.

DSP hasn't scored a goal since Dec. 1st, but he does have five helpers during that time. While he'll skate to the right of Patrick Maroon and Rickard Rakell, Smith-Pelly simply gain entry back into your lineup.
