Florida Panthers ship F Jerred Smithson to Edmonton Oilers For Draft Pick

Joel Auerbach

After shedding Mike Santorelli's contract via waivers, the Cats send Smithson north for a 4th round pick.

The Florida Panthers have traded center Jerred Smithson to the Edmonton Oilers for a fourth-round pick in the 2013 Entry Draft.

The 34-year-old Smithson was acquired by the Cats from the Nashville Predators last season for a sixth-round pick.

In 35 games with the Panthers this season, Smithson tallied two goals and added three assists, while posting a -4 rating. He picked up one assist in 16 games with Florida last season.

The veteran pivot will add depth and the ability to win faceoffs to a young Edmonton team looking to slip into the playoffs.
