Penguins Call On Smith

Sort of an unexpected signing today and a big one made by the braintrust on Coal Street.

On Thursday, the Wilkes-Barre / Scranton Penguins announced the signing of center Colin Smith to an AHL contract.

Smith is an automatic 40 point scorer in the American Hockey League and has scored 40 points in back to back seasons with San Antonio and Toronto in the AHL, an average of 42 points in his first four seasons.

Nathan Mallett saw Smith play the last two seasons and offered up this little piece of information on Smith, which he also offered up on the capsule on Smith when he helped out with my AHL Big Board….

…I had Smith ranked #44.

A big time signing made by the Penguins. And they may not be done.
