Reilly Smith scored his seventh goal of the season on Thursday night in a 3-2 loss to the Chicago Blackhawks.

Smith is heating up with six points in his past three games to account for 15 points in 29 games this season. The 23-year-old flash is finally showing signs of the flair he showed last year during a 51 point campaign. Torrey Krug also scored for Boston while Brad Marchand, Patrice Bergeron and Milan Lucic notched assists.
Dec 11 - 10:05 PM

Reilly Smith has stepped up his offensive production of late.

Smith has two goals and two assists in his last two games. Prior to that, the 23-year-old hadn't produced a point in 10 games. The Bruins are playing the Blackhawks on Thursday, and they will need all the production they can get. Overall, Smith has six goals and 14 points in 28 games this season. He is a good buy-low candidate in standard fantasy leagues.
Dec 11 - 5:46 PM

Reilly Smith had a productive end to Boston's road trip.

He recorded two goals against San Jose last Thursday in a 7-4 loss and he added two assists in a 5-2 victory over Arizona on Saturday. Smith had gone 10 straight games without a point prior to getting four in his last two outings.
Dec 8 - 10:12 AM

Reilly Smith scored twice on San Jose Thursday night, though Boston lost 7-4.

Patrice Bergeron made a great individual effort to draw a defender and goalie Antti Niemi to his side before sliding it across to Smith for the game's opening goal 29 seconds in. He later capped off his own fine effort to give the B's a 4-3 lead midway through the game. With two other shots and three hits, Smith had a fine game for himself. He has six goals and 12 points on the season.
Dec 5 - 2:24 AM

Reilly Smith returned to a line with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron during Tuesday's game against Los Angeles.

Smith doesn't have a point in his past 10 contests. Boston has scored 16 goals in their past 10 games, so coach Claude Julien is trying to revisit an old combination to try to spark some offense. Smith's promotion moved rookie David Pastrnak between a pair of lines.
Dec 4 - 9:52 AM

Reilly Smith notched a goal and an assist in Boston's 4-2 win over New Jersey on Monday.

The Bruins were led by Smith's line in the contest, as Patrice Bergeron starred versus the Devils with a goal and two helpers. Smith now has four goals and 10 points in 16 games.
Nov 11 - 6:52 AM

Reilly Smith had two points in Thursday's 5-2 victory over Edmonton.

Entering the match, he didn't have a goal in nine games. Smith recorded his third marker of the year late in the first period and he added an assist on Dougie Hamilton's power-play tally in the third. Smith is starting warm up offensively, picking up four of his eight points in his last four outings.
Nov 7 - 6:33 AM

Reilly Smith was bumped to the fourth line during Wednesday's practice.

He skated alongside Gregory Campbell and Daniel Paille. Smith had two goals and one helper in his first five appearances, but he has one assist in his last six outings.
Oct 30 - 9:53 AM

Reilly Smith buried his second goal of the season Wednesday in a 3-2 shootout win over Detroit.

Smith continues to be an excellent fit alongside Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand. He faded in the second part of the season in 2013-14, but he's come out strong this year despite missing most of training camp to settle his contract. Smith ended up signing a one-year deal and he appears to be motivated to get a long-term pact in his next contract. Boston has had some trouble scoring goals early in the 2014-15 campaign and ironically Smith hasn't looked as rusty as his teammates.
Oct 16 - 9:50 AM

Reilly Smith scored Boston's first goal of the season, which was encouraging after he missed the beginning of training camp.

Smith was a restricted free agent who the cap-constrained Bruins were trying to sign. He didn't get to play until Boston's second-to-last preseason contest. Smith had 20 goals in his first season with the Bruins last year and his first of the campaign in 2014-15 came on a power play, with assists going to Patrice Bergeron and Carl Soderberg.
Oct 9 - 9:46 AM

Reilly Smith will play in his first 2014 preseason game on Friday.

Smith missed the start of training camp as a restricted free agent. He's coming off of a 51-point season and he still has untapped upside. In the end though, he agreed to a one-year, $1.4 million deal due to the Bruins' limited cap space.
Oct 3 - 4:40 PM

Reilly Smith said that Boston's cap situation played a significant role in his negotiations with the team.

"The cap is a huge factor," said Smith, who signed matching one-year deals worth $1.4 million along with defenseman Torey Krug. "When that comes into play, you kind of have to accept it and move on. Our agents advised us of the situation, the cap constraints the Bruins have. Obviously, both of us wanted to play here. . . . You don’t want to push anyone out (in a cap space-clearing trade), so that was the one solution that was there." Boston was able to agree to terms with two key restricted free agents on Monday, but now they have to clear some cap room.
Sep 30 - 10:06 AM

Reilly Smith has signed a one-year, $1.4 million deal with the Boston Bruins.

Boston is lucky that Smith and Torey Krug finally blinked and signed matching $1.4 million deals because the Bruins weren't going to be able to pay them what they were worth unless they cleared up cap space with a trade. Smith broke out last season with 20 goals and 51 points in 82 games. If he manages to build on that, then he has plenty of bigger paydays ahead of him.
Sep 29 - 9:56 AM

Boston Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli stated that still RFA forward Reilly Smith was "not going anywhere" when he met with the fans on Thursday.

Like with Torey Krug, it's still unclear what Smith will come in for, but it sounds like Chiarelli is intent on finding a way to bring the talented young forward back into the fold. The Bruins sit $809,143 above the salary cap ceiling.
