Brendan Smith is confident he'll be better in 2014-15. Advice: "Just playing simple and playing my game will help me," he said. "I think what I have to do better is make sure that I don't try to chase the game - let the game come to me. That will make sure that I have a great start." He's slated to be paired with Kyle Quincey again in Tuesday's exhibition game against Chicago. Smith is also expected to get some time on the power play during the preseason, which could help his fantasy value once the regular season begins. More: Detroit Free Press

Jonathan Drouin missed Tampa Bay's scrimmage on Sunday as he is dealing with an upper-body injury. Advice: Drouin is believed to be dealing with a hand injury. The 19-year-old is listed as day-to-day. The injury shouldn't affect Drouin's availability to play in preseason games. "He'll be in exhibition games," said Lightning head coach Jon Cooper. "I'm not sure about scrimmages, but in exhibition games for sure." The Lightning play their first preseason game at home against the Nashville Predators on Tuesday night. More: Tampa Tribune
Jonathan Drouin didn't practice on Saturday because of an upper-body injury and he's listed as day-to-day. Advice: "This is by no means serious. ... He'll be back next week at some point," coach Jon Cooper said via the Lightning's Twitter account. He should see plenty of action in the preseason, as the Bolts get a feel of where to start him once the regular season begins. Drouin will have plenty of value if he can earn a spot alongside Steve Stamkos, but he started camp outside of the team's top-six group. More: NHL.com
