Smith has grown comfortable skating on the left wing, Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports.

Analysis:

Smith told general manager Bryan Murray last season that he wanted to stick to center, but the 27-year-old has thrived in the role as a winger, hitting 20 goals for the first time in his career. Additionally, Smith is riding a seven-game point streak -- also a high for his career -- going into Saturday's matchup against Toronto. The winger is enjoying life next to Jean-Gabriel Pageau and Mark Stone, boosting his value as a result.
