Devante Smith-Pelly (upper-body) is not in the Ducks' lineup on Saturday afternoon.

Smith-Pelly is believed to be suffering from a shoulder injury. He is day-to-day right now. The injuries just keep on mounting for the Ducks, who are already without Corey Perry, Francois Beauchmein, Dany Heatley and Ben Lovejoy.
Nov 15 - 4:15 PM

Anaheim forward Devante Smith-Pelly scored the lone goal in Anaheim's 1-0 win over the Blackhawks Tuesday night.

Though he was replaced by Dany Heatley on the Ducks top trio alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, Smith-Pelly's third period shorthanded tally held up as the game-winner in a tight battle. His move to the Ducks second line makes him a less appealing target going forward.

Devante Smith-Pelly continues to shine on the first line with the Ducks.

Coach Bruce Boudreau is thrilled with the play of Smith-Pelly and it's going to take some effort in the short term to knock him off the top unit with Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf. "From the beginning of training camp until now, it’s night and day," Boudreau said. "And when he’s finishing checks and being involved in the game, he’s a real dynamic player. People don’t realize he’s almost 220 pounds." Smith-Pelly scored his second of the season on Friday and while he doesn't see a lot of time on the power play, he is still only 22. He led the Ducks in playoff scoring last season with five goals in 12 games so that should tell you a lot about his talent.

Devante Smith-Pelly skated on the first line in practice Saturday.

Smith-Pelly joined Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry on the first unit as Patrick Maroon is out about a month with a sprained MCL and Dany Heatley is also out of action with a groin injury. "Watching them bring it every night [last season], you see what it takes to be an elite player," Smith-Pelly said. "Last year in the playoffs helped me, I feel much more comfortable with them." Smith-Pelly gets a fantasy boost with this move.
Oct 19 - 6:44 AM

Devante Smith-Pelly scored his first goal of the season on Tuesday.

Smith-Pelly had two goals and 10 points in 19 games in 2013-14. He's been getting decent minutes so far this season and it wouldn't surprise us if he surpasses the 40-point mark as a result.
Oct 15 - 5:18 AM

Coach Bruce Boudreau placed Devante Smith-Pelly on the second line Friday.

Smith-Pelly started the season on the third unit with Emerson Etem and Rikard Rakell but the line struggled, forcing coach Bruce Boudreau to make changes at practice on Friday. Smith-Pelly will now skate alongside Ryan Kesler and Matt Beleskey and that should help his fantasy value. He could get 45-50 points on the second unit compared with 35-40 on the third.
Oct 11 - 5:10 AM

Devante Smith-Pelly is happy with his new two-year deal.

Smith-Pelly inked his deal a couple of days before the start of training camp. "I knew it would get done," Smith-Pelly said. "I wasn't sure how long it would take, but I knew I wouldn't miss any days. Once we sat down and discussed it, there wasn't much to talk about. I left all that to my agent. ... I knew something would get done. But it was good to finally get out here and skate with the guys." Smith-Pelly had 10 points in 19 NHL games last season and 43 points in 55 AHL games. He will likely spend the entire season in the NHL and should get 35-40 points. Draft him accordingly.
Sep 27 - 5:29 AM

The Anaheim Ducks signed forward Devante Smith-Pelly to a two-year contract on Tuesday.

The second-rounder (42nd overall in 2010) scored two goals and 10 points in 19 games with shaky possession numbers. It's difficult to imagine him making a big fantasy impact next season, but it wouldn't be surprising if he beat his career-high games played of 49 back in 2011-12. At 22, there's plenty of room to improve.
Sep 16 - 4:08 PM

The Anaheim Ducks and Devante Smith-Pelly have made "a little bit" of progress since resuming contract negotiations last week.

Smith-Pelly is a restricted free agent after completing his entry-level contract. He had two goals and 10 points in 19 games in 2013-14. He was a good bet to make the Ducks' opening game roster, but if he holds out much longer, that might change.
Sep 16 - 9:39 AM

Devante Smith-Pelly has yet to sign a contract.

The agent for the restricted free agent and the Ducks finally chatted about a new contract on Thursday but nothing was resolved. Smith-Pelly has nine goals in 75 career NHL games so his bargaining power is negligible but did score five times in 12 playoff games with Anaheim last season. Smith-Pelly has a shot at the first line this season alongside Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf, a spot that he filled nicely at the end of the 2013-14 season but could also drop to a role as a bottom six forward so signing a deal and getting into camp is a necessity.
