The Red Wings traded Smith to the Rangers for 2nd and 3rd round picks, with the 2nd-round pick coming to the Wings in this year’s draft. The Wings drafted Peterborough Petes 2-way center Zach Gallant with their 3rd-rounder last spring.
OUCH: According to the New York Post’s Larry Brooks, Smith was waived on his 29th birthday: https://t.co/nNXttlRZhc
