Penguins Forward Frustrated With His Experience In Pittsburgh



The Pittsburgh Penguins went all in this summer trying to build a contending team. In doing so they made several additions to the roster.

In 41 games this season Smith has just 20 points. His projected point total for this season would drop by 20 if he continues at this pace. This has led to major trade speculation surrounding Smith. One option that has been mentioned is a return back to one of his former teams.

The Hockey News has since linked Reilly Smith to a new team. In their report, they list the Vegas Golden Knights as one of the favorites to land Smith. If the Golden Knights were to land Smith it would be one of the biggest blockbuster trades of the deadline.

Reilly Smith had by far his most success with the Vegas Golden Knights. He was always going to likely return to the Golden Knights before retiring. If the two sides could make a deal work with Smith's salary he could return sooner than everyone thought.

If Smith does return to Vegas he could continue the work he has done with the Golden Knights core and try to go back to back as a champion.
