Devante Smith-Pelly, Greg Pateryn, and Victor Bartley will each sit out Saturday's match with St. Louis.

Unfortunately, there isn't much fantasy value between any of these three. Smith-Pelly, who has easily seen the most time this season, with Montreal or otherwise, has accumulated just eight points and 47 hits through 31 games.

Devante Smith-Pelly will be a healthy scratch in Thursday's game against the Blackhawks.

The 23-year-old was involved in an off-ice controversy with teammate Alex Galchenyuk, but it's unclear if his scratching has anything to do with that. Smith-Pelly has three goals and eight points in 31 games. Jarred Tinordi and Greg Pateryn will also watch from the press box.

Devante Smith-Pelly will get back in the lineup on Tuesday against Philadelphia.

He is getting the nod over Sven Andrighetto because of his size. "It's never an easy place to come to in Philly," coach Michel Therrien said. "They're physical. We believe that his game ... could help Desharnais and Fleischmann. He can work the corners, the forecheck, go hard to the net, He's a presence out there."
Jan 5 - 6:16 PM

Devante Smith-Pelly, Alexei Emelin, and Jarred Tinordi will each be scratched against the Blues on Tuesday.

Smith-Pelly hasn't quite been the depth scorer as Montreal hoped he'd be, but he's at least posted 42 hits over his 28 games this season. Which isn't nothing. Emelin meanwhile has posted 35 PIMs, 51 blocks, and laid out 104 hits over 30 games this season. Which is considerably more fantasy production if nothing else.

Devante Smith-Pelly netted a pair of goals in Montreal's 5-1 win over the New York Rangers on Wednesday night.

The promotion to the top line worked out wonderfully for Smith-Pelly, as he filled in for injured winger Brenden Gallagher in the contest. Tomas Plekanec assisted on both of DSP's markers. He has three goals and eight points in 22 games this year, but skating with Plekanec and Max Pacioretty looks like it will give him a nice fantasy boost.

Devante Smith-Pelly is expected to be back in the lineup Wednesday and skating on the top line.

He practiced alongside Tomas Plekanec and Max Pacioretty on Tuesday because Brendan Gallagher is slated to miss at least six weeks after he suffered two fractured fingers on his left hand. Smith-Pelly sat out last Sunday's game with a lower-body injury, so his availability will be confirmed during Wednesday's morning skate. Still, it looks likely that he'll play and coach Michel Therrien doesn't want him to change his game because he's on the top line.

Devante Smith-Pelly suffered a lower-body injury in Friday's win over the New York Islanders.

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

Thu, Nov 5, 2015 08:24:00 AM

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

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.
