Top Givani Smith News

  • Panthers' Givani Smith: Recalled from minors

    Smith was called up from AHL Charlotte on Tuesday.

    Smith will most likely provide coverage as an emergency depth option rather than actually suiting up against the Coyotes on Tuesday. Still, the team obviously is impressed enough with the young winger to trade for him in mid-December despite having recorded just five points in 22 AHL games this year. If he does get into the lineup during this stint in the NHL, it will almost certainly be in a fourth-line role, where he will see minimal minutes.

  • Panthers' Givani Smith: Dropped to AHL

    Smith was loaned to AHL Charlotte on Friday, per the AHL transaction page.

    Smith logged 7:01 of ice time and posted four hits during his Florida debut Friday against the Islanders. There is a chance he could be back with the Panthers following the holiday break.

  • Panthers' Givani Smith: Recalled from AHL Charlotte

    Smith was recalled from AHL Charlotte on Friday.

  • Panthers' Givani Smith: Traded to Panthers

    Detroit traded Smith to Florida in a three-team deal Monday that sent Danny O'Regan to the Red Wings and Michael Del Zotto to Anaheim.

    Smith was selected in the second round of the 2016 NHL Entry Draft but has never quite found his footing at the top level. He had 14 points and 138 PIM in 85 career NHL games with Detroit. The 24-year-old winger has five points in 19 AHL games this season and he'll now report to AHL Charlotte.

  • Red Wings' Givani Smith: Back to minors

    Smith was demoted to AHL Grand Rapids on Friday, per CapFriendly.

    Smith was added to the roster to serve as insurance Thursday against the Rangers and will now head back to the minors. He has two points with a minus-9 rating in eight AHL appearances this season.

  • Red Wings' Givani Smith: Recalled Thursday

    Smith was recalled from AHL Grand Rapids on Thursday,

    Smith has played two games with Detroit this season, but he failed to pick up a point over that span. The bottom-six forward has averaged close to 10 minutes of ice time per game during his 85-game NHL career, and he's scored seven times while adding seven assists over that stretch. He will provide forward depth as the Red Wings head out to the West Coast after Thursday's home tilt against the Rangers.

  • Red Wings' Givani Smith: Makes season debut

    Smith had three shots during a 2-1 win over the Wild on Saturday.

    Smith, who skated in 83 games for the Red Wings the past three seasons, displayed his physicality Saturday by delivering three hits during 9:18 of ice time. The gritty 24-year-old forward earned his latest promotion from Grand Rapids of the AHL because Oskar Sundqvist (upper body) and Michael Rasmussen (suspension) did not dress. Smith opened Saturday as the center of the third line with rookie Elmer Soderblom and Adam Erne. He could remain with the Red Wings until Rasmussen returns from his two-game penalty.

  • Red Wings' Givani Smith: Recalled from AHL

    Smith was recalled from AHL Grand Rapids on Saturday, Kevin Allen of Detroit Hockey Now reports.

    Smith will replace Michael Rasmussen on the roster after Rasmussen was given a two-game suspension for his hit to the head of Boston's David Krejci on Thursday. Smith had one assist in three games with the Griffins before his recall, after managing four goals and seven points in 46 games with the Red Wings in 2021-22.

    Smith missed 19 games at the end of last season. The 24-year-old is once again on the roster fringe for the Red Wings, so he'll need to impress in camp or else end up with AHL Grand Rapids. He put up seven points, 108 PIM and 86 hits in 46 contests last year.

  • Red Wings' Givani Smith: Dealing with undisclosed issue

    Smith (undisclosed) won't play Saturday against Pittsburgh, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    Smith's tallied just seven points through 46 contests this season, so his absence won't make waves in most fantasy circles. Another update on his status should be released if and when he's cleared to rejoin the lineup.

  • Red Wings' Givani Smith: Remains unavailable

    Smith (undisclosed) is not in the lineup Wednesday versus the Rangers.

    Smith is set to miss a fourth straight game, though he hasn't been downgraded from day-to-day. The 24-year-old isn't guaranteed a spot in the lineup even once he's healthy -- he'll likely compete with Taro Hirose for playing time. Smith's next chance to play is Friday versus the Senators.

  • Red Wings' Givani Smith: Remains day-to-day

    Smith (undisclosed) remains day-to-day ahead of Saturday's clash with the Islanders, Ansar Khan of MLive.com reports.

    Smith missed the latest contest -- a 5-2 loss to the Islanders -- as well as Friday's practice, which makes it a foregone conclusion that he won't suit up against the Lightning on Saturday. Meanwhile, the Wings expect to get Filip Zadina (illness) back against the Bolts, and that should afford Smith more time to recover.

  • Red Wings' Givani Smith: Out against Isles

    Smith is dealing with an undisclosed injury that will keep him out of the lineup versus the Islanders.

    In addition to Smith, the Wings will also be missing Filip Zadina (illness) which will press Chase Pearson into the lineup for his NHL debut. The 24-year-old Smith has served as a healthy scratch for seven of the club's last 15 contests, so few fantasy players figure to be impacted by his absence.
