Brian Duff hosts a new season-long video series that takes a closer look at the development and performance of the Buffalo Sabres top prospects in Rochester.
This week's episode focuses on rookie forward C.J. Smith, who after a four-point weekend, currently leads the Amerks in all offensive categories with seven goals, 16 assists and 23 points while being one of just three skaters to appear in all 22 games this season. Smith ranks second among all AHL rookies in scoring and is tied for sixth overall among the league’s top point-getters. He’s also tied for second among all first-year skaters with 11 power-play points, including a team-best three power-play tallies. Smith is currently one of just two AHL rookies to lead his respective team in scoring, joining Tucson’s Dylan Strome.
