Craig Smith

Craig Smith has been excellent this season for the Predators as he has increased his point total tremendously. He had struggled to put up points over the past few seasons, as he only had 29 points last season.

Smith has already put up 22 points this season, with 12 goals and 10 assists. Smith has been a key part of the Predators success this season, as Smith has started to score more and more goals. His number of goals had decreased each season ever since the 2013-2014 season, but already has 12 goals so far only 33 games into the season.

To show how good Smith has been this year, he had 12 total goals last season in 78 games played.  Smith has had success on the power play so far this season as he has 5 power play goals, which is good for 2nd on the team.

Smith’s point total, like Fiala’s, has increased with the addition of Turris. I do personally think that one player from the Fiala-Turris-Smith line will have a great chance to make the All-Star game, but it’ll be difficult to see which one will be picked.
