Reilly Smith RW BOS 11 Days

Smith netted a goal in Tuesday's shootout loss to the Predators.

After a meager start to the season, Smith has really clicked since joining Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron on the top trio, tallying four goals and two assists over the last five games. Smith's recent surge in production could make it tough on coach Claude Julien to break up the trio once David Krejci (groin) returns, which could happen as soon as Wednesday's game against the Wild.

Smith collected a pair of assists and was a plus-2 in Saturday's win over the Coyotes.

That's back-to-back two point outings for Smith, who is loving life alongside Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron on the top line. With 14 points (six goals) in 28 games, Smith isn't en elite scorer, but his 20-goal potential makes him worth a look in deeper leagues.

Smith scored a pair of goals in Thursday's 7-4 loss to the Sharks.

In the process, Smith snapped a 10-game scoreless streak, while upping his season totals to six goals and 12 points in 27 games. Until the production is delivered in a more consistent fashion though, Smith will be a hit-or-miss fantasy option.

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

It was the second straight two-point effort for Smith, who has recorded five points over his last three games, upping his season total to 10 points in 16 games overall. Of late, the Smith/Brad Marchand/Patrice Bergeron trio has been an effective one, with Smith now back on the fantasy radar after a modest start to the current season.

Smith delivered a goal and a power-play assist in Thursday's win over Edmonton.

It's been a bit of a challenge in the early going for Smith to replicate last season's 51-point performance, but he's been warming to the task lately, having picked up four points and a plus-5 rating in his last four games. Check whether an impatient owner may have cut him loose in your league.

Smith scored his second goal of the season in Wednesday's shootout win over the Red Wings.

While the Bruins' offense hasn't taken off yet, Smith has managed three points in five games to date. Skating with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron, and seeing work on the team's power play, Smith (who notched 51 points in 82 games last season) should see his share of scoring opportunities moving forward.

Smith made his preseason debut in Friday's 6-1 win over the Islanders, ESPN.com reports.

Smith notched a third-period goal in his return to action and appears poised to open the coming season manning right wing on the Bruins' second line, which also features Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron.

The Bruins signed Smith to a one-year, $1.4 million deal Monday, USA Today reports.

The deal will get the Bruins below the salary cap for this season, but they'll need to renegotiate next summer if they want to keep Smith around. The winger suited up for every game last season, racking up 20 goals and 31 assists.

There have been no visible developments with regard to the contract situations of Smith and Torey Krug, according to the Boston Herald.

While we expect that the restricted free agents, who remain away from training camp, will be back with the team in time, the Bruins may need to make a trade in order to free up the salary cap room necessary to make that happen. Once Smith (who recorded 20 goals and 51 points in 82 games last season) does rejoin the Bruins, he'll presumably skate on a line with Brad Marchand and Patrice Bergeron.

GM Peter Chiarelli hopes to have a new deal with Smith done before training camp starts on Thursday, the Bruins' official site reports.

The same applies to fellow restricted free agent Torey Krug, though given the team's current salary cap situation, the Bruins may need to make a trade in order to complete new deals with the duo. In any case, once he's re-signed, Smith remains on track to serve as a top-six forward for the B's, on the heels of a 2013-14 season in which he notched 20 goals and 51 points in 82 games.
