Ty Smith's Player Profile

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com - April 30: "Smith has the ability to make all the right plays in his end, either skating the puck out of the zone or carrying it and creating in transition. He also excelled offensively with 73 points (14 goals, 59 assists)."

Mike Morreale - NHL.com - April 30: "He was extremely effective on the power play, where he had 27 points (three goals, 24 assists). The left-shot defenseman can dissect the forecheck and pick it apart with a smooth transition pass from his own zone."

Craig Button - TSN - April 28: "He may not be a prolific offensive blueliner in the NHL, but his ability to make plays with the puck and do it calmly is a hallmark of today's NHL defenceman."

Sam Cosentino - SportsNet - April 28: "Class and character best describe Canada’s U-18 captain. Smith performed well for Spokane in the playoffs before heading overseas. One of the best skaters in the draft he has a never ending thirst to improve."

Steve Kournianos - SportingNews/The Draft Analys - April 28: "A silky-smooth puck mover who is the cream of this year's Western Canadian draft contingent, Smith is an outstanding power-play quarterback with excellent agility and a real nose for the net. There's some Drew Doughty to his game, especially the way he handles an aggressive forecheck."

Cam Robinson - DobberProspects - April 26: "The dynamic two-way defender continued to display his full arsenal of weapons with Spokane this season. The former first overall pick in the 2015 WHL bantam draft, Smith is a tremendous skater who demonstrates poise and patience with the puck. "
