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.

Smith-Pelly gets a fantasy boost with this move.

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.
