Jerred Smithson (born February 4, 1979) is a Canadian professional ice hockey centre who plays for the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League.

Playing career[edit]

Undrafted, Smithson played in the Western Hockey League with the Calgary Hitmen before he signed his first National Hockey League contract with the Los Angeles Kings. Smithson scored the game-winning goal for the Nashville Predators in Game 5 of the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs to beat the Anaheim Ducks 3-2. The Predators went on to defeat the Ducks in 6 games to preserve their first ever playoff series win.

On February 24, 2012, Smithson was traded by the Predators to the Florida Panthers for a 2012 6th round draft pick.[1]

April 3, 2013 he was acquired by the Edmonton Oilers from the Florida Panthers in exchange for a 4th round pick in the 2013 Draft.

As a free agent leading into the 2013–14 season, Smithson signed a professional try-out contract with the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League on October 16, 2013.

After 7 games with the Marlies, on November 6, 2013, Smithson returned to the NHL in signing a one-year contract with parent club, the Toronto Maple Leafs.[2] Smithson later made his Leafs debut on November 8, 2013. Smithson was waived by the Maple Leafs on December 4, 2013, and after clearing waivers reported to the AHL Toronto Marlies.[3]
