Flames release Smith-Pelly from PTO
Smith-Pelly was signed to the PTO in early September.
The 27-year-old produced eight points in 54 games while playing a fourth-line role with the Washington Capitals in 2018-19, adding 14 points in 20 contests for their AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears.
Smith-Pelly helped the Capitals win the Stanley Cup in 2018, notching seven goals across 24 playoff games, including the tying marker during the title-clinching Game 5.
He's also suited up for the New Jersey Devils, Montreal Canadiens, and the Anaheim Ducks in his eight-year NHL career.
