Smith-Pelly became a fan favorite last season during the Caps' Stanley Cup run, scoring seven playoff goals, including the game-tying goal in Game 5 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Vegas Golden Knights. 

The 26-year old signed a one-year, $1 million deal this past offseason to stay in Washington, and has tallied eight points on four goals and four assists in 54 games this season.
