Today we wish a Happy 33rd Birthday to the "Ultimate Predator", Jerred Smithson. a guy who has carved out a nice career for himself by doing the dirty work which allows his teammates to get the glory. He kills penalties, takes an obscene amount of defensive zone faceoffs, and blocks shots - whatever it takes to keep the puck out of Nashville's net.

Did ya know...

  • Smithson is just 11 games shy of 500 played as a Nashville Predator. This season he'll pass Greg Johnson (502) for #5 on the team's all-time Games Played list.
  • He has a pet English Bulldog, named Reggie.
  • Before signing as a free agent with the Preds in 2004, spent two seasons as a Los Angeles King.
  • He can make a grown man cry with a single glare.

Hmm... I wonder if we can come up with any video highlights for Smithers?
