Not many players are as steady and even-keeled as Reilly Smith. The Golden Knights top line forward put together arguably his finest NHL season in 2017-18. Smith and fellow linemate, Jonathan Marchessault, played a major role in William Karlsson’s Lady Byng award-winning campaign. It’s hard to imagine Vegas’ success without Smith’s leadership, or his 0.90 points per game average.
“We want character people… good leadership, great character and good work ethic.”– Gallant on Reilly Smith’s team influence
