Top Givani Smith News

  • Sharks' Givani Smith: Snags helper in loss

    Smith posted an assist in Thursday's 7-2 loss to the Islanders.

    Smith picked up his first point in five games since he returned from a lower-body injury that sidelined him for two months. The 26-year-old winger has four points, 27 shots on net, 70 hits, 33 PIM and a minus-8 rating over 31 appearances. Smith's played almost exclusively on the fourth line and offers almost no upside for fantasy managers.

  • Sharks' Givani Smith: Expected to return Saturday

    Smith (lower body) will be activated off injured reserve and play Saturday versus Nashville, coach David Quinn told Curtis Pashelka of The San Jose Mercury News on Wednesday.

    Smith is set to play for the first time since Dec. 21. He has a goal, three points, 33 PIM and 59 hits in 26 contests this season. Smith will likely serve on the fourth line Saturday.

  • Sharks' Givani Smith: Still sidelined

    Smith (lower body) won't play Thursday against Calgary, Max Miller of The Hockey News reports.

    Smith is evidently nearing a return to full health, but he'll remain on injured reserve for now. He's picked up just three points through 26 contests this season, so fantasy managers don't need to track his status.

  • Sharks' Givani Smith: Could play Thursday

    Smith (lower body) may be available for Thursday's game versus the Flames, Max Miller of The Hockey News reports.

    Smith has been out since Dec. 23, though he joined the Sharks on their current road trip. His return is apparently close, but he's unlikely to see more than a fourth-line role if he gets into the lineup at all once activated from injured reserve.

  • Sharks' Givani Smith: Return isn't imminent

    Although Smith (lower body) did skate Saturday, he's not close to returning, coach David Quinn told Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now.

    Smith, who hasn't played since Dec. 21, has a goal, three points, 33 PIM and 45 hits in 26 contests this season. When Smith is an option, he will compete for a fourth-line spot and might also occasionally serve as a healthy scratch.

  • Sharks' Givani Smith: Goes on injured reserve

    Per Max Miller of The Hockey News, Smith (lower body) was placed on injured reserve Thursday.

    Smith was injured Dec. 21 versus Arizona and his placement on IR was likely made retroactive to that date. Smith has gone 11 games without a point -- he has a goal, two assists, 45 hits and 33 PIM in 26 games this season.

  • Sharks' Givani Smith: Sidelined again Wednesday

    Smith (lower body) won't play Wednesday versus the Kings, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.

    Smith was hurt last Thursday and his absence will now reach two games. The 25-year-old should be considered questionable at best for Thursday's contest versus the Oilers.

  • Sharks' Givani Smith: Unavailable Saturday

    Smith (lower body) won't play Saturday against the Canucks, per Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now.

    Smith, who is considered day-to-day, was injured in Thursday's 5-2 loss to Arizona. In 26 appearances this season, he has registered three points, 33 PIM, 27 shots on goal and 45 hits. With Alexander Barabanov (illness) also unavailable to play, Jacob MacDonald could shift back to forward for Saturday's contest.

  • Sharks' Givani Smith: Hurt in Thursday's game

    Smith (undisclosed) won't return to Thursday's game versus the Coyotes, Max Miller of The Hockey News reports.

    Smith was hurt in the second period on a hit from Matt Dumba in the neutral zone. The 25-year-old Smith has filled a fourth-line role for most of the time he's in the lineup, so his absence won't make waves in fantasy. If he misses time, Alexander Barabanov is likely to return to the lineup.

  • Sharks' Givani Smith: Good to go Friday

    Smith (abdomen) is in Friday's lineup against the Devils, per the NHL's media site.

    Smith was a game-time call Friday but he won't be forced to miss any action despite dealing with a minor injury. The 25-year-old has three points, 29 PIM and 35 hits through 21 games this season.

  • Sharks' Givani Smith: Game-time decision Friday

    Smith has a mid-body injury and a decision on if he will be in the lineup will be made after the pregame skate Friday versus New Jersey, Max Miller of The Hockey News reports.

    Smith was injured Thursday in Boston and it may have occurred during his fight with Trent Frederic late in the second period, as he did not play in the third. Smith has a goal, two assists, 29 PIM and 35 hits in 21 games this season.

  • Sharks' Givani Smith: Collects pair of points

    Smith scored a goal on three shots, dished an assist, added two hits and went plus-2 in Thursday's 5-1 win over the Blues.

    Smith has three points on the year, all of which have come over the last two games. His second-period goal was his first as a Shark. The 25-year-old has added 24 shots on net, 22 PIM, 25 hits and a minus-3 rating while playing in a fourth-line role over 15 appearances. Despite his uptick in offense, he's unlikely to sustain his scoring long enough to make an impact in fantasy.

  • Sharks' Givani Smith: Registers helper

    Smith earned an assist, fired two shots on goal and added two PIM in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Panthers.

    Smith saw just 5:55 of ice time Tuesday, but he was able to set up Mike Hoffman for a first-period goal. Entering Tuesday, Smith was averaging 8:44 of ice time per game. The 25-year-old continues to see a limited role on the fourth line, where he's contributed 23 hits, 22 PIM, 21 shots on net and a minus-5 rating through 14 appearances.

  • Sharks' Givani Smith: Spends time in sin bin

    Smith was scoreless in Friday's 3-0 road loss against the Hurricanes.

    Smith ended up with two shots on goal, two minor penalties, two blocked shots and a hit in his 9:53 of ice time across 14 shifts. He has very little fantasy appeal outside of the deepest pools, but he can be helpful in the PIM and hits categories.

  • Sharks' Givani Smith: Joining San Jose

    Smith signed a two-year, $1.6 million contract with the Sharks on Saturday.

    The Panthers elected not to qualify Smith after he logged four points (one goal, three assists) in 34 games. The 25-year-old Smith will bring a physical element to San Jose's bottom six -- he racked up 63 hits and 72 PIM last year.

  • Givani Smith: Hitting open market

    Smith was not qualified by Florida on Friday, making him an unrestricted free agent, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Smith scored four points in 36 combined games with Detroit and Florida last season. His physicality could land him a bottom-line role somewhere, as he also added 67 hits and 72 PIM in 2022-23.

  • Panthers' Givani Smith: Activated off LTIR

    Smith (face) has been activated off long-term injured reserve ahead of Tuesday night's game versus the Flyers, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports.

    At this point, it isn't clear if Smith will play Tuesday, but if he does, look for him to slot into a bottom-six role against Philadelphia. He's picked up four points while averaging 7:08 of ice time through 24 contests this campaign.

  • Panthers' Givani Smith: Placed on long-term injured reserve

    Smith (face) was placed on long-term injured reserve Friday, David Dwork of Local 10 Miami reports.

    The Panthers are up against the cap with the return of Anthony Duclair (Achilles) to the lineup, as well as injuries to Aleksander Barkov (hand) and Sam Bennett (lower body), both of whom are unavailable Friday against Buffalo. Smith was hit in the face by a Radko Gudas shot in the second period Monday against Anaheim and had a procedure done this week, forcing him out of action until late March. The feisty forward has a goal and three assists with 47 PIM and 48 hits in 22 NHL games this season.

  • Panthers' Givani Smith: Out of action Friday

    Smith (face) will not play Friday versus Buffalo, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Smith was hit in the face by a Radko Gudas shot in the second period Monday and did not return. He could return Tuesday in Tampa Bay, but he'll be out of action Friday. He has a goal and three assists with 48 hits and 47 PIM in 22 games this season.

  • Panthers' Givani Smith: Exits Monday's game

    Smith left Monday's 4-3 overtime win over Anaheim in the second period after being hit in the face by a shot from teammate Radko Gudas, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

    Coach Paul Maurice said following the contest that X-rays came back negative and Smith won't need to enter concussion protocol. Despite the encouraging news, it's unclear at this time if Smith will be available for Friday's matchup with Buffalo. If he can't play, Chris Tierney could draw back into the lineup.
