July 2017 – After the trade that saw Smith join the Toronto organization, he compiled an 18 game stretch that seen him become the top line center while other Marlies were recalled and took 21 points to the bank. He was reduced to a reserve player for the playoffs but made noise with five points in 9 games. He is a smart player who has a rather exciting drive for a sub-six-foot player, unfortunately that did not earn him a RFA contract offer from the upper management. Instead he will come to camp as a Marlie contracted player, that needs to play himself into an NHL contract. He is not owned by the Leafs so other organizations will be able to contact, invite or even sign him from under Toronto umbrella, but if an offer is made it would not be surprising for the Leafs to underhandedly match as he has the right to negotiate as an NHL unrestricted player and is expected to be a key development cog for the Marlies. He still has a positive career outlook despite the contract hurdle, but it is not likely to surface in Canada’s largest city. Jason Banks


February 2016 – Colin Smith has been traded to the Toronto Maple Leafs along with a 4th round pick in exchange for forward Shawn Mattias. Hayden Soboleski


December 2015 – Through 20 games, Smith is the leading scorer on the San Antonio Rampage with 17 points (seven goals, ten assists, plus-four, 36 SOG). This rate of production may decline given his very high shooting percentage, but he recieves regular time on the top line with high-skill linemates, so the organization is clearly eager to see what Smith can do when given the chance. Still, dont expect time with the Avs this season given the plethora of bottom-six options. Hayden Soboleski


May 2015 – In his second season with Lake Erie in the AHL, Smith played 53 games and tallied 31 points (12 goals, 19 assists) with 22 penalty minutes. He missed 23 games at the end of the year with a serious leg injury. He plays a confident dynamic game and earned a call-up to the NHL for a game when the opportunity arose. The center position is crowded in Colorado, but given his strong play and experience as a prolific scorer he may have an edge over the competition, especially if he gains more strength and size. Hayden Soboleski


September 2013 – Colin Smith has been impressive and has made a real case for himself to make the team out of training camp. He has been consistent and responsible on the ice and has proven to be dependable in the scoring areas. He is a small forward but it hasn't seemed to affect his game much as he put up a goal in the Avalanche annual burgundy and white game, helping burgundy win three to one. Andrew Ward


July 2013 – Colin Smith inked a three year entry level deal with the Colorado Avalanche. One of the more promising young forwards for Colorado, Smith had a stellar season in the WHL finishing with 106 points for Kamloops and tied for fourth in WHL scoring. Andrew Ward


February 2013 – Colin Smith was named WHL Player of the Week (ending February 3rd) after registering 10 points (4 goals, 6 assists) in four games. Smith currently sits third in WHL scoring with 86 points from 36 goals and 50 assists, which are all new statistical career highs for the fourth year forward. It was the third time that Colin Smith has taken home these weekly honours this season.
