Predators' Cole Smith: Could miss time
Smith (upper body) is not considered close to returning to action according to general manager David Poile, Robby Stanley of 102.5 The Game reports Tuesday.
Smith will for sure miss his second straight contest when the Preds face the Knight on Tuesday, though it sounds like it may be longer. With just one point in his last 11 contests, the 27-year-old winger's absence is unlikely to have a significant impact on fantasy players.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Cole Smith: Out Monday
Smith (upper body) will not play Monday against the Stars.

Predators' Cole Smith: Suffers undisclosed injury
Smith is dealing with an undisclosed injury sustained against the Blues on Saturday, John Glennon of NHL.com reports.
Smith's status for Monday's matchup with Dallas should probably be considered questionable at best, especially after the team opted to call up John Leonard from the minors. In his last 11 games, the 27-year-old Smith managed just one point and eight shots while dishing out 34 hits. If he can't play Monday, the aforementioned Leonard should be in line to replace him in the lineup.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Cole Smith: Physical presence in loss
Smith picked up nine hits in the Predators' 2-0 loss to the Penguins on Thursday.
Smith was a huge physical factor Thursday, posting nine hits in his 16:34 of ice time. The American forward has been struggling offensively lately, scoring just one goal in his last 10 games. He should continue to occupy a third-line role moving forward.... See More ... See Less

Smith made a quick impact on offense, setting up Colton Sissons' goal at 4:55 of the first period, just 27 seconds after the Canucks opened the scoring. In the middle frame, Smith dropped the gloves with J.T. Miller. Smith hasn't been one to back down from the rough stuff this season -- he has 52 PIM and 158 hits to go with 15 points, 54 shots on net and a minus-1 rating through 55 outings in his first full NHL campaign....

Smith recorded an assist and two hits in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Blackhawks.
Smith helped out on linemate Colton Sissons' empty-netter in the third period. The assist ended a three-game dry spell for Smith, who has held his own in a bottom-six role this season.

Predators' Cole Smith: Inks one-year extension
Smith agreed to terms on a one-year, $775,000 contract extension with Nashville on Monday.
Perhaps most significant for Smith is that his extension is a one-way contract, so he can't be as easily moved between the NHL and AHL. Being on a two-way deal this season hasn't stopped the 27-year-old winger from logging 42 games with the Preds in which he has generated two goals on 47 shots, nine assists and 112 hits while averaging 11:45 of ice time. Unlikely to develop into a top-six offensive option, Smith should still be capable of recording 20-25 points per season and offer decent mid-range fantasy value.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Cole Smith: Nets first career goal
Smith scored a goal in Nashville's 5-3 win against Los Angeles on Saturday.
Smith's marker came at 16:10 of the third period to put Nashville up 5-3. It was his first goal and 10th point in 40 games this season. That was also the 27-year-old's first goal in 49 career contests. Smith was held off the scoresheet for four straight games from Jan. 12-17, but he registered an assist versus St. Louis on Thursday.... See More ... See Less

Smith has missed the Predators' last five games because of the injury. He has no goals and eight assists in 34 contests while averaging 11:50 of ice time in 2022-23.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Cole Smith: Remains unavailable
Smith (upper body) won't return to the lineup against Ottawa on Monday, Emma Lingan of the Predators' official site reports.
Smith will be shelved for his fifth consecutive game due to his lingering upper-body issue. While the 27-year-old winger is still looking for his first goal of the season, he has chipped in eight assists in 34 contests this year. Once cleared to play, Smith should return to a bottom-six role where he could offer decent mid-range fantasy value, especially in formats that utilize hits.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Cole Smith: Out Friday
Smith (upper body) will not dress Friday against Washington, Emma Lingan of the Predators' official site reports.
Smith will miss his fourth consecutive game Friday and there's been little update on his status. The 27-year-old can be considered out indefinitely until more information is available.... See More ... See Less

Predators' Cole Smith: Snags helper Tuesday
Smith registered an assist in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to Dallas.
Smith brought his 10-game pointless streak to a close with Tuesday's helper, though he remains mired in a season-long goal drought. Given his limited offensive upside, Smith shouldn't be expected to offer more than low-end fantasy value this season.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Cole Smith: Earns first NHL assist
Smith recorded an assist in Friday's 4-1 win over the Sharks.
The assist was Smith's first career point in 10 NHL games. He saw 11:18 of ice time in the contest, playing in a fourth-line role, though he's far from a lock to be an everyday player in 2022-23. Smith had 41 points in 59 contests with AHL Milwaukee last season, but at 26 years old, he's yet to establish himself much at the NHL level. The forward's on a two-way deal for this season, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him bounce between leagues.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Cole Smith: Re-ups with Nashville
Smith signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Predators on Thursday.
Smith made eight appearances with the Predators last year, but he's still in search of his first NHL point. He had 21 goals and 20 assists in 59 games with AHL Milwaukee, displaying a solid scoring touch. Still, the winger's two-way deal likely means he'll spend most of the season in the minors.... See More ... See Less
Predators' Cole Smith: Sent to AHL
Smith was reassigned to AHL Milwaukee on Saturday, per CapFriendly.
Smith has yet to record a point in eight games this season, though he's added 21 hits. The 26-year-old may be back with the team Tuesday when the Predators visit the Panthers.... See More ... See Less
