March 2014 – There seems to be hardly any scenario that sees Smith excluded from playing in the NHL for the Red Wings at this point. He has more upside to offer but will grow into it as he fully matures as an NHL fixture in ‘Hockeytown’. Currently he is barely hold-able on a strong fantasy squad, but within a year or two he will be legitimate staple to own going forward. Jason Banks

March 2014 – When you tuned into watch the Red Wings take on the Maple Leafs on March 18th you may have been wondering why you saw a number 2, Brendan Smith, a defenseman buzzing in the offensive zone so frequently. Well that’s because Smith made his NHL debut upfront for Detroit playing on the left wing of a makeshift fourth line. With as many as 8 forward regulars out due to injury the Wings are willing to try anything to help kickstart the team back to it’s usual winning ways. This has been a frustrating and trying year for Hockeytown but with all the injuries it has given Detroit’s prospects and young regulars increased roles and opportunities.  The former University of Wisconsin star defenseman currently sits third on the team for defenseman scoring with three goals and 12 assists to date. Although this may be viewed as disappointment for many poolies, Smith still has the 4-5 category stud potential and is someone to continue to keep an eye on. Travis Watson


November 2013 – Smith is set to return to action on November 19th when the Wings take to the ice against the visiting Nashville Predators. Detroit has been dealing with a rash of injuries and because of that appear to be toying with the idea of dressing seven defencemen to make up for the loss upfront. Smith will be returning to action for the first time in two weeks sinc
