Regular Season Statistics with the Franchise
Stats in bold signifies team leader.
Getting Smehlik was a depth move for the playoffs. He provided solid defensive play and a veteran presence, things the
Devils had plenty of that season.

For him, at least he won the Cup this time, unlike his last trip to the Finals. He was part of the Sabres team that made
the trip in 1999.

That and he went out a winner, like Daneyko.
Entry Draft: 1990 Fifth Round Pick (97th overall) by the
