Devante Smith-Pelly is expected to stay on a line with Alex Galchenyuk and Lars Eller on Thursday night.

Montreal hasn't been able to squeeze much offense out of the second line this season and Smith-Pelly isn't likely to help. He has one goal and three assists in 14 games.
Nov 5 - 8:24 AM

Devante Smith-Pelly finally got of the schneid in Friday's 6-2 win over Calgary.

Smith-Pelly now has points in three in three straight, but this was his first goal as he slammed home a Paul Byron feed. Smith-Pelly is up to four points in a dozen games thus far.
Oct 31 - 1:04 AM

Devante Smith-Pelly skated on Montreal's fourth line at Monday's practice.

He appears to have the edge on Jacob De La Rose for the start of the regular season. The injuries and suspension of Zack Kassian opened a spot for them to battle over. It looks like De La Rose will be the 13th forward on opening night.
Oct 6 - 10:50 AM

Devante Smith-Pelly scored his first goal of the postseason in Saturday's Game Five win over Tampa Bay.

Smith-Pelly scored the opening goal in the first period and the Habs lead held until the third period. The 22-year-old has dished out a good amount of hits but he hasn't produced much offense since joining the Canadiens. Don't plan on Smith-Pelly scoring much as the Canadiens playoff run continues. He plays more of a bottom-six role.
May 10 - 10:34 AM

Devante Smith-Pelly was credited with six hits in Game 1 against Ottawa.

That tied Alexei Emelin for the team lead. Smith-Pelly also had one shot on goal in 13:29 of ice time. He had five goals for the Ducks in 12 postseason games in 2013-14.
Apr 16 - 10:41 AM

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. "On the first unit we have Gallagher, but he adds a presence out there and this is a guy who in the past has played some of his best hockey at this time of the year and into the playoffs."
Apr 6 - 11:25 AM

Forwards Devante Smith-Pelly and Manny Malhotra will be listed as healthy scratches Monday when the Canadiens host the Lightning.

Smith-Pelly will be scratched for a second consecutive game Monday night. Since being traded by Anaheim, he has not been able to get his game up to speed in the Eastern Conference, chipping in with just one assist in 15 games with Montreal. Malhotra will sit for a fourth straight game and has played in 57 games this season, picking up a goal and three assists.
Mar 30 - 6:05 PM

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

He will sit in the press box alongside Mike Weaver, Sergei Gonchar and Manny Maholtra. The trade to Montreal has certainly not increased Smith-Pelly's fantasy value.
Mar 28 - 11:14 AM

Devante Smith-Pelly registered his first point as a member of the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night.

Smith-Pelly helped set up Lars Eller's second period goal (which was eventually the game-winner). The 22-year-old has taken some time to adjust to his new team but it looks like he's getting more and more comfortable with every game. Smith-Pelly has five goals and 18 points in 60 games.
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 started Thursday's game with Brandon Prust and Jacob de la Rose.

He was moved to a line alongside Tomas Plekanec and Alex Galchenyuk later in the contest. Smith-Pelly had two shots and a team-high four hits in his Montreal debut.
Feb 27 - 10:08 AM

Devante Smith-Pelly will slated to make his Montreal debut on Thursday.

He didn't arrive in time to practice with his new teammates on Wednesday, so the morning skate will be his first sessions with the Canadiens.
Feb 26 - 11:34 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.
Feb 24 - 7:28 PM

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.
