Reilly Smith RW BOS 16 Days

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, 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.

Fantasy hockey fans will be expecting more from Reilly Smith next season.

Smith came into the 2013-14 season under the radar as it was perceived that he was a throw-in in the Tyler Seguin-Loui Eriksson trade. But the former Dallas Star showed everyone that he was a top-six forward in the NHL with a 20 goal, 31 assist performance this season and then added four goals and a helper in 12 playoff games. Smith is eligible for restricted free agency in the off-season but it's hard to believe that the Bruins won't try to sign him to a new deal as quickly as possible.

Reilly Smith is slated for restricted free agency this summer.

His first season with Boston was very productive. He scored 20 goals and posted 51 points in 82 games. Smith also added four goals and one assist in 12 playoff matches. He was acquired by Boston in the Tyler Seguin deal and proved he could be a valuable contributor. That should earn him a good raise coming off his entry-level contract, but he may have to prove himself again before getting a longer term deal.

Bruins coach Claude Julien is reaping the benefits of sticking with Reilly Smith during his late season slump.

Smith has bounced back with three goals in his last five games. "I would say he mostly had a great season," Julien said of Smith. "Maybe for a month or so he got really quiet, but for the most part I thought he was pretty consistent. The way he's playing right now is a lot more indicative of the kind of year he's had. Every young player is going go through a lull along the way. Am I pleased with his play? Absolutely. I think he's come up big in the playoffs, and we've seen the Reilly Smith that we saw for most of the regular season." Smith was acquired as part of the blockbuster deal with Dallas that saw Tyler Seguin and Loui Eriksson swap teams. Given that Eriksson had a rough, injury-riddled debut season with Boston, the rise of Smith has prevented the trade from looking one-sided.
