(ABC 6 News) – Hockey forward C.J. Smith was a force in his junior hockey days in SPAMtown, a clear sign of his talent on the ice—and the NHL has taken notice.
The Buffalo Sabres signed Smith, a forward, to a one-year contract on Monday. In September, following his junior season at the University of Massachusetts-Lowell, the Sabres signed Smith to an entry-level contract.
Smith played for the NAHL’s Austin Bruins from 2011 through 2013. During the 2012-2013 season, Smith scored 30 goals—an Austin Bruins single-season franchise record.
