Smith-Pelly has been out of hockey since the end of the 2020-21 AHL season where he played for the Ontario Reign. During that time, Smith-Pelly was a part of hockey’s first all-Black line since the ’40s with Quinton Byfield and Akil Thomas. During his 14-game stint with the Reign, DSP tallied one assist.
Since leaving the Capitals after the 2018-19 season, Smith-Pelly has also made a stop in China to play for the KHL’s Kunlun Red Star.
