Smyth has been making that play for years. He scored on it once about 10 years ago and it just became more frequent since then.

He's never a threat to score on that play, but overall it either ends up as a rebound that you've got a chance on, or the goalie freezes it and there's a faceoff in the offensive zone. It's a safe play with little downside. I'd rather he did that then try to deke the defender and end up turning the puck over at the blueline.
