We always knew Craig Smith could shoot.
But he can really shoot.
The Boston Bruins opened training camp Monday, holding their first official session after a few days of voluntary skates. As a result, we received one of our first looks at Smith, who Boston signed to a three-year deal with a $3.1 million AAV one day into free agency.
Smith cames to Boston after nine seasons with the Nashville Predators, five of which he potted 20-plus goals.
We can see why he’s such a proficient shooter.
That’s right, he makes this shot glove side.
Smith skated with Charlie Coyle and Nick Ritchie during Day 1 of camp. It’s unclear if Ritchie will remain with that group, but the vision for a while now seems to have been putting Smith and Coyle together.
