Penguins' Reilly Smith: Swapped for third-round pick
Smith was traded to the Penguins on Wednesday from the Golden Knights in exchange for a 2024 third-round selection.

If Pittsburgh is unable to re-sign Jason Zucker, it could open a path to a top-six role for Smith. The Ontario native has reached the 50-point threshold in four of his last six seasons and should be capable of reaching that mark in 2023-24 as well.... See More ... See Less
