During his five years with the Colorado, Smith played only 15 games for Avalanche, with the bulk of his time being spent with the Bears.
In the three years Smith was part of the Oilers organization, he played nearly all the time with Edmonton's respective AHL affiliate. He collected another seven games during the 2005–06 season with the big club.
On July 13, 2006, Smith was signed by the Detroit Red Wings. After the Red Wings training camp, Smith was assigned to Detroit's AHL affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins, with whom he played the 2006-07 season.
For the 2007-08 season, on July 11, 2007, Smith was signed by the Columbus Blue Jackets. Added as depth for their affiliate, the Syracuse Crunch, Smith's veteran presence helped guide the Crunch to the second round of the playoffs.

Named captain, the tenth in Syracuse history, Smith missed only one game in the year as the Crunch failed to qualify for the playoffs.
