Smith has been traded by the Bruins to the Panthers in a deal for Jimmy Hayes, ESPN's Pierre LeBrun reports.

Per the report, Florida will also acquire the contract of the injured Marc Savard in a move that clears up some serious cap room for the Bruins. Smith, who signed a two-year, $6.85 million extension with Boston last March, is coming off a disappointing campaign in which he recorded just 13 goals and 40 points in 81 games. At 24 years of age though, Smith -- who possesses good stick skills and speed -- is certainly very capable of bouncing back with the Panthers.

Smith dished out two assists Thursday in a 3-2 comeback win over Detroit.

With the Bruins down 2-0, Smith went to work, picking up the primary assists on Carl Soderberg's goal to make it 2-1 and Loui Eriksson's game-tying tally. While this year has represented a step back for Smith, he's still been a solid presence and a reliable source of secondary scoring for Boston.

Smith recorded an assist in 15:32 worth of ice time in Sunday's loss to the Lighting.

While Smith did not record a shot in the game, his assist snapped a six-game streak without a point, a slump which led to the winger being made a healthy scratch Saturday against the Panthers. Look for Smith to remain a fixture in the Boston lineup down the stretch, but until he gets into any sort of groove on offense, he'll remain a hit-or-miss fantasy option.

Smith will suit up Sunday against the Lightning.

Smith, who was a healthy scratch Saturday against the Panthers, returns to the Bruins' forward mix Sunday after a one-game absence. The winger, who has not scored a point in his last six games, has notched 36 points in 71 games overall, with the B's no doubt hoping that a temporary view from the press box will help Smith round back into form.

Smith recorded a minus-3 rating in just 7:50 worth of ice time in Thursday's 6-4 loss to Ottawa.

Smith, who has not recorded a point in his last six games, saw limited action Thursday after his second-period turnover led to a deflating Jean-Gabriel Pageau tally that occurred shortly after the B's had tied the game at 3-3. While Smith remains a key part of the Boston attack when he is on, it's plausible that his recent struggles could result in a brief stint in the press box.

Smith signed a two-year, $6.85 million extension with the Bruins on Friday, Joe Haggerty of CSN New England reports.

Smith was set to become a restricted free agent this summer, but the extension will lock him in with the Bruins through the end of the 2016-17 season. Generally regarded as a throw-in to the July 2013 deal that sent Tyler Seguin to the Stars, Smith has arguably been the top performer in the four-player haul the Bruins received in return. He hasn't missed a single game during his two years in Boston and currently ranks second on the team in points (35) and tied for second in plus/minus rating (plus-11).
