Smyth to Return to Edmonton This Week

From Eric Duhatschek in Monday’s Globe & Mail,

As for Smyth’s return on Tuesday, which figures to be an emotional night for both him and his former team, Staios said he hoped that Edmonton fans will take into consideration his years of service when deciding how to greet him.

“He did a lot of great things for this organization,” Staios said. “The business side of things is never really appreciated by the fans.”

“Hopefully, they’ll remember what he did on the ice and in the community and can show him that respect – like they did for Jason when he came back.”
