Derek Smith (born October 13, 1984) is a Canadian professional ice hockey player who currently plays for the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Playing careerEdit

Smith played junior for the Wellington Dukes of the Ontario Provincial Junior Hockey League from 2002 until 2004. He then went to university at Lake Superior State University. After three years at Lake Superior, Smith signed as a free agent with the Ottawa Senators of the National Hockey League (NHL).[1] on April 12, 2007. After training camp, Smith was assigned to the Senators' top minor league affiliate, the Binghamton Senators. Smith was re-signed by the Senators to a one-year contract on July 29, 2009.[2]

On February 12, 2010, after the trade of Alexandre R. Picard and an injury to Chris Campoli, Smith was called up to the Ottawa Senators. He made his NHL debut against the Red Wings on February 13, 2010, a 4–1 loss. He stayed on for the next game on February 14 against the New York Islanders. That was the final game before the Olympic break which Ottawa won 4–3 after coming back from a 3–1 deficit. He was returned to Binghamton afterwards.

On July 13, 2010, Smith was re-signed by Ottawa to a one-year, two-way contract.
