Well this sucks. According to this Sportsnet article, looks like one of my favorite players is about to hang them up for good.
Jason Smith was my favorite player for a long long time, and the only player whose name/number I have on the back of a jersey. He was exactly what a captain should be, was a tough player and would stick up for any teammate at any time.
Good on the Sens to give him a position elsewhere. He can teach a lot of people about hard work and class.
