Interview with Ottawa Senators F Zack Smith:
I had the chance to chat with former Broncos captain Zack Smith this week before he headed back to Ottawa for another NHL season with the Senators. He’s fresh off a career high 25 goals but preparing for another new coaching staff in Ottawa. It looks like this season he will be playing more of a shut down role for Ottawa and he can certainly deliver in that capacity. They’re lucky to have a player they can slot in almost any position and know he will deliver.
Smith also skated some with the Broncos recently and had good things to say about the talent he saw in the organization.
The Broncos play a home-and-home with Lethbridge this weekend starting tonight in Lethbridge. Tomorrow’s game at the Credit Union iPlex will be the first of the pre-season in Swift Current. David from our newsroom will be delivering excellent coverage of that game for you at Swift Current Online so check that out. I’m taking off tonight for one last family weekend at Cypress Hills before my wife and kids have to put up with seven months of hockey weekends! I hope you and yours have a good weekend and I’ll have some follow up from the weekend in a few days.
